Brian Wilson, Jeff Beck to host Rock'N'Roll Fantasy Camp
Happy campers will receive songwriting and performance tips
The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck are to host a Rock'N'Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas.
The 'camp' takes place from April 18-21 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, where attendees will learn songwriting tips from the legendary Beach Boys singer and guitar lessons from Jeff Beck.
In addition to practicing and recording music with the two legends, the 'campers' will also get the chance to perform at MGM Grand's Rouge Lounge at the end of the four-day session. There will also be an attendees-only gig by Brian Wilson.
However, those wishing to attend will need to fork out for the pleasure as the cheapest package is $2,500. If money is no object, however, the complete package costs a staggering $6,499.
Rock'N'Roll Fantasy Camp also announced a further two weekenders in spring. Sammy Hagar and Steve Vai host a session from March 5-9, while Def Leppard lead a fantasy camp from April 4-7. For more information and package details, go to the Rock'N'Roll Fantasy Camp website.
Meanwhile, Brian Wilson has said that he doubts there will be another reunion of The Beach Boys. When asked recently about the possibility of a reunion – following last year's 50th anniversary tour dates and the release of a brand new album 'That's Why God Made The Radio' – Wilson said: "No, I don't think so. Doubt it."
