TONY IOMMI, STEVE VAI, ZAKK WYLDE Set For ROCK 'N' ROLL FANTASY CAMP

2016 marks the 20th anniversary of Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp, and four of the greatest guitarists and a legendary drummer come together in Los Angeles to headline one of the most amazing camp's ever assembled on Presidents Day/Grammy weekend, Feb. 11-14, 2016. Campers will have the opportunity to meet and jam with guitarists Tony Iommi, Steve Vai, Warren Haynes, Zakk Wylde and drummer Carl Palmer at this once-in-a-lifetime event. In addition, the weekend will culminate with campers and their bands performing at the Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip.

"I've really enjoyed working with the students at Coventry University and the 'Guitar Star' contestants in England, so I'm looking forward to meeting some more enthusiastic players at the Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp in Hollywood," said Iommi.

"As we approach the 20th anniversary of Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp, we continue to fulfill people's musical dreams, from beginners to advanced players," said David Fishof, founder and creator of Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp. "This camp will be a true once-in- a-lifetime experience for any music fan."

Tony Iommi is a founding member and lead guitar player of Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning hard rock band BLACK SABBATH. He is synonymous with his innovative, de-tuned, dark riffs that are considered the blueprint for hundreds of bands that followed.

Also appearing will be Warren Haynes, who is best known for his work as longtime guitarist with the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND and founding member of the jam band GOV'T MULE, as well as touring with PHIL LESH and THE DEAD. Haynes will be joined by Zakk Wylde, who is best known known as the guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, and founder of the band BLACK LABEL SOCIETY. He was also the lead guitarist and vocalist in PRIDE & GLORY, and as a solo artist he released "Book Of Shadows". In addition, Carl Palmer, one of the most respected rock drummers to emerge from the 1960s and veteran of famous English bands including EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER and ASIA, will headline the camp.

Rounding out the line-up is Grammy Award-winning artist and legendary guitar hero Steve Vai. He has sold over 15 million albums and has recorded and toured with Frank Zappa, PUBLIC IMAGE LTD., ALCATRAZZ, David Lee Roth, WHITESNAKE, and as a solo artist.

Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp is a non-competitive atmosphere designed for all levels of musicians and music enthusiasts. Participants are placed in bands with like-minded people and skill level to make for an off-the-charts experience.

The bands will rehearse under the guidance of a rock star counselor, including Vinny Appice (DIO, BLACK SABBATH), Rudy Sarzo (QUIET RIOT, OZZY OSBOURNE), Tracii Guns (L.A. GUNS), Vic Johnson (SAMMY HAGAR), Frankie Banali (QUIET RIOT), Bjorn Englen (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN), Kane Roberts (ALICE COOPER), Teddy Andreadis (GUNS N' ROSES) and Brian Tichy (WHITESNAKE).

Space is always limited at Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp to keep the experience intimate.
