Sex Pistols men join Camp Freddy for all-star LA romp

Motorhead, Jane's Addiction men also lend a hand

All-star cover band Camp Freddy were joined on-stage by members of the Sex Pistols, Motorhead, Jane’s Addiction and Alice In Chains for their show at the Roxy in Los Angeles last night (May 1) that kicked off their month-long residency at the legendary Sunset Strip club.

The band, which features Billy Morrison (The Cult), Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), Donovan Leitch (son of singer Donovan), and Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction), performed cover songs by their guest performers as well as Blur, Led Zeppelin and Oasis.

“We’re going to bring on half of the Sex Pistols for their song ‘EMI’ — now I can die and go to heaven,” Morrison said when the legendary punk band’s guitarist Steve Jones and drummer Paul Cook took the stage.

“What can we do to top that?” Morrison asked at the end of the Sex Pistols number before introducing Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister who sang his band’s hit ‘Ace Of Spades’.

The evening’s guest parade also included Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme, Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray, Steven Perkins of Jane’s Addiction and Warren DeMartini of Ratt.

For their grand finale, the band brought on nearly all their guests as well as scantily clad dancing women for a cover of The Stooges‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’.
