Rock-n-Roll Fantasy

September 24, 2008

Alright friends, quick question:  What do guitar legend Jimi Hendrix and I have in common?  Give up?  Well, here it is:  We’ve both taken the stage to perform at San Francisco’s legendary Fillmore Auditorium. 

I got the chance to play the Fillmore recently as a participant in the Rock-n-Roll Fantasy Camp.  After a full day of rehearsals with our “camp counselor” Kip Winger (yes, that Kip Winger,  front-man for the multi-platinum ‘80s rock band of the same name), my four bandmates and I took to the same stage that helped launch the carreers of  Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, and—well—more rock legends than you can count.

While the one-day “On Tour” program has wrapped up for this year, there’s still time to get in on the outfit’s week-long Fantasy Camp program in London.  If the opportunity to play alongside The Rolling Stones’ Bill Wyman and Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason isn’t enough of an incentive for you to get out your checkbook, you’ll also have the chance to record at The Beatles’ Abbey Road studios and play live at Liverpool’s famous Cavern Club.

In the meantime, check out the Xperiences page at XTRORD.com for the full story on my extraordinary experience rocking out at the Fillmore.
