Nick Mason at Rock Fantasy Camp - May 2010

We were contacted by the people behind the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp, letting us know that Nick Mason, drummer for Pink Floyd, will take part in the camp again this year. If you’ve got the money, this would surely be a one of a kind experience. Here is the press release and how to get more info:

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FANTASY CAMP
RETURNS TO ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS IN MAY 2010
(MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND)

“Hey, one day I was playing drums on Sunshine of Your Love, with Jack Bruce on bass. The next day, I jammed with Nick Mason on a Floyd tune at Abbey Road Studios, and then I played ‘I am the Walrus’ on stage at the cavern Club – I was in total heaven.”

Former camp participant, art director Barry Simon, sums up the unique experience that is Rock N’ Roll Fantasy Camp. Following an immensely successful camp in November 2008, the Rock N’ Roll Fantasy Camp will return to Abbey Road Studios in London from 25th to 31st May 2010.

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FANTASY CAMP does exactly what it says on the tin! Regardless of experience, campers are provided with a once in a life time opportunity to rehearse and record at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, with some of rock’s most iconic stars by their side. The week culminates in the opportunity to perform live on stage at the world’s most famous rock club,
THE CAVERN in Liverpool, where the Beatles first made their name.

Such is Rock ’N’ Roll Fantasy Camp’s draw, 5 months out and already the following have confirmed:

• Nick Mason (Pink Floyd – Special guest)
• Jack Bruce (Cream – Special guest)
• Spike Edney (Queen and others – Counselor)
• Nick Ralphs (Bad Company – Counselor)
• Joey Molland (Badfinger – Counselor)
• Mark Hudson (Aerosmith producer)
• Kip Winger (Winger)

After his first appearance at Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp 2 years ago, Slash, who could probably deliver a degree course on how to live an excessive, decadent rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle mused, “but not everyone really wants to live our lives. They just want a chance to touch it.” And that is exactly what Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp delivers.

The camp is so much more than a ‘meet & greet’ opportunity… with 10+ hours of daily jamming with the rock star counselors, meals with celebrity musicians, a CD of the campers’ music recorded at Abbey Road Studios, A DVD of their live performance at The Cavern, Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp really does provide a full-on rock experience. The best recommendation being that participants and counselors alike return to camp after camp.

While no experience is necessary, to ensure that all campers get the most out of their week, Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp is introducing a “Masters Program” for more accomplished participants. By submitting tapes/videos ahead of the camp, they can be assured they will be grouped with other musicians of their caliber.

Coming in July 2010, VH1 Classic and Mark Burnett Productions have teamed up to give fans the ultimate music experience to fulfill their rock and roll fantasies. In a new, hour-long, weekly docu-series, viewers will get to watch as 15 musicians from a variety of backgrounds and cities will go through the transformative process of becoming “rock stars.”
