Colorado Youth Play 'Guitar Hero' For Rock Legend DEREK ST. HOLMES

Heidi McGuire of 9News.com reports: The next generation of rock stars got to show off their stuff on Saturday in front of a rock and roll legend.

Derek St. Holmes, a former vocalist and guitarist for TED NUGENT, judged a competition among young musicians in Lakewood and Wheat Ridge [Colorado].

Youth ages 7 to 17 got to perform solos and get tips from the pro. The winner of the competition received $100 and a week at camp.

"We thought for most of the young kids, to get them interested in Camp Jam, we thought we'd start promoting this contest," said St. Holmes.

St. Holmes started touring the U.S. four years ago to get kids involved with music.
