RUDY SARZO Talks 'Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp' On 'Stefanie's Rock Show' (Audio)

On October 20, Stefanie Heminger of "Stefanie's Rock Show" conducted an interview with bass veteran Rudy Sarzo (OZZY OSBOURNE, WHITESNAKE, QUIET RIOT, DIO, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT). You can now listen to the chat below.

Sarzo is involved in VH1 Classic's new original series "Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp", which premiered this past Saturday, October 16. Hosted by Carrie Keagan, the show features 15 "average Joe" musicians from a variety of backgrounds and cities as they go through a transformative process of becoming true rock stars at "Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp". Broken into three groups of five, each group is assigned a rock star counselor (Rudy Sarzo, Kip Winger and Mark Hudson) who gives tough love and guidance to the wannabe rockers, transforming the weak campers from quiet nice guys to loud rockin' frontmen. For one week these professional football players, mechanics and realtors form bands, rehearse and learn the ropes from other rock gods who drop by, including Ace Frehley, Michael Anthony, Bret Michaels and many more. With the music know-how, fresh looks and rock star swagger in place, these transformed musicians take the stage performing before a live audience and the stakes couldn't be higher. Fans pick the best band, giving them an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform with a legendary rock artist.

A collector's edition of Rudy's book, "Off the Rails: Aboard the Crazy Train in the Blizzard of Ozz", was released in August 2008 via TooSmart! Publishing. According to Sarzo, "The new edition is beautiful and includes many more pictures throughout the book as well as a 16-page glossy spread of Ross Halfin photos from the beginning of our tour."

"Off the Rails" includes a first-person account from Rudy's personal day-by-day diary of events while touring with Ozzy Osbourne and Randy Rhoads in the early Eighties. The book was originally due in 2005 but was delayed after Sharon Osbourne allegedly applied pressure to have it pulled.
