CAMP FREDDY — the Los Angeles-based "jam" group featuring Dave Navarro (ex-JANE'S ADDICTION, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), Billy Morrison (ex-THE CULT bassist, current CIRCUS DIABLO vocalist), Matt Sorum (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES), Donovan Leitch (son of legendary folk singer Donovan), and Chris Chaney (JANE'S ADDICTION, ALANIS MORRISETTE) — has issued the following update:

"It was a busy day for CAMP FREDDY yesterday [Saturday, October 4], as the band performed two shows in one day. First of all, the band helped celebrate the opening of the new John Varvatos store in Malibu with an acoustic performance that included Royston Langdon (SPACEHOG), Steve Stevens (BILLY IDOL), Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT) and Perry Farrell (JANE'S ADDICTION). And then later that night at an exclusive, unrelated party in Malibu, the band played an electric set that culminated in Paul Stanley from KISS joining the band for killer versions of 'Whole Lotta Love', 'All Right Now' and the KISS classic 'Strutter'.

CAMP FREDDY recently parted ways with Los Angeles' acclaimed Indie 103.1 radio station, which has aired the band's weekly show every Saturday for nearly five years.

CAMP FREDDY is continuing work on what is expected to eventually be released as the band's debut album. Among the cuts that are set to appear on the effort are "20th Century Boy" (also featuring Steve Jones from THE SEX PISTOLS on lead guitar) and THIN LIZZY's "Jailbreak" (featuring ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell on vocals and Billy Duffy on lead guitar). Other guest musicians include RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith and singer Macy Gray.

Since its formation six years ago when they rocked the opening of The Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles at the invitation of Brent Bolthouse, CAMP FREDDY has performed on both coasts of America and on national television shows ("The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", "Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn", "Last Call with Carson Daly").
