Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES), Chester Bennington (LINKIN PARK) and Billy Duffy (THE CULT) are among the guest musicians who joined all-star cover band CAMP FREDDY last night (December 9) for its performance at the Roxy in West Hollywood, California. This was the second of the four-night Roxy residency for CAMP FREDDY, which features Billy Morrison (CIRCUS DIABLO, THE CULT), Dave Navarro (JANE'S ADDICTION, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), Matt Sorum (GUNS N' ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER), Donovan Leitch (son of singer Donovan), and Chris Chaney (JANE'S ADDICTION).

Commented Navarro: "Once again, we all had a great time last night at The Roxy for week two of the CAMP FREDDY residency. Our guests included Mark McGrath who did an unbelievable version of 'Public Image' and an even better job on 'Sanctuary' with THE CULT's Billy Duffy. Who knew the guy could sing like that? Mark also killed it on 'Rebel Yell' with Steve Stevens on guitar... Later we were joined by Slash and Chester Bennington for 'Whole Lotta Love' and 'Paradise City', which were the ultimate finale. Chester also did an incredible version of 'Mountain Song' with the core band. Of all the people who I have heard sing that song, Chester is second best, after Perry [Farrell], of course. Chester obviously respects the song and really does it justice in his delivery and clear intentions to stay true to the original version. He also tore up 'Ace of Spades'. Other guests included Franky Perez [SCARS ON BROADWAY], who amazed everyone with his incredible voice on 'Highway To Hell' and 'Alright Now', Steve Jones, and THE DARLING STILETTOS."
