David Fishof, the former Ringo Starr manager and founder of Rock ’n’ Roll Fantasy Camp will release his book “ROCK CAMP: An Oral History, 25 years of The Rock ’n’ Roll Fantasy Camp” on Dec 1st. This new book chronicles the highlights (& depths) of his vast and exciting career including the tremendous success of Rock Camp.
Having just finished a Stones versus Beatles camp, David is now preparing two more editions: the first one being a women-only event in Nashville, from January 19th to the 23rd, with Lzzy Hale (Halestorm) and Vicky Peterson (Bangles). The second camp is a Led Zeppelin-themed event, with members of Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots and Carmine Appice (Cactus, Blue Murder and more) from March 19 to the 23rd.
The Rock ’n’ Roll Fantasy Camp was created 25 years ago to provide real people the once-in-a-lifetime experience of connecting and jamming with their musical heroes. The Camp has provided unforgettable memories, advice and feedback for attendees worldwide. Camp events span over four jam packed days where campers join a band mentored by today’s top touring musicians, and work up to final performances with the headliner rockstars at legendary venues from Abbey Road Studios in London, to Hollywood’s Whisky A Go Go, to the Atlantic resort in The Bahamas.
The tremendously successful 2021 documentary “Rock Camp, The Movie” follows four campers who attend Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp and how it transforms their lives. These “rock campers” share the stage with superstar counselors including Roger Daltrey, Alice Cooper, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Nancy Wilson, Joe Perry, Judas Priest, Sammy Hagar and many more.
Sonic Perspectives collaborator Rodrigo Altaf caught up with David, and they discussed the success of the camp, the ways in which counselors can help campers become better musicians, his dream guest and much more.
