Kim Thayil is set to appear alongside Robert and Dean DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots at the upcoming Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp

Rock Camp’s upcoming Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp will be dubbed A Whole Lotta Rock and will feature Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil, Stone Temple Pilots Robert and Dean DeLeo and rock drummer Carmine Appice.

The event – ​​taking place March 16-19, 2023 – is themed around Led Zeppelin’s back catalog and gives guitarists and other musicians the opportunity to jam with (and pick the brains of) real rockstars.

The Los Angeles event will also give attendees the chance to perform at two of the most famous/notorious venues on the Sunset Strip, the Whiskey A-Go-Go and The Viper Room.

As is tradition at rock camps, throughout the weekend ticket holders will be split into groups to jam and practice with a selection of professional musician “advisors” and guest stars.

Some of the advisers signed up for next year’s event include Whitesnake’s Joel Hoekstra, former Dio/Black Sabbath drummer Vinny Appice, Nickleback’s Mike Kroeger and Madonna/Ministry man Monte Pittman.

‘Campers’ (as the event calls its ticket holders), will also have the chance to take part in masterclasses and Q&A sessions with the guest stars, before performing on stage for two nights. Thayil will even join each group for a song during the closing performance.

“I had such a great time at Rock Camp in February, and I’m super excited to be back,” Thayil said. “Bring your favorite ax and let’s play Rock Camp!”
