VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES drummer Matt Sorum will record a song in San Francisco with Sammy Hagar, original VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony and guitarist Billy Duffy of THE CULT for Sammy's upcoming solo album, marking a reunion in the studio for Sorum — who was THE CULT's drummer — and Duffy.
This Thursday, July 17, CAMP FREDDY — featuring Sorum and bandmates Billy Morrison, Dave Navarro, Donovan Leitch and Chris Chaney — will play the "Stamping Out Disease" benefit gig at the Viper Room in West Hollywood. Proceeds of this show will go towards helping to offset medical costs for music industry veteran and CAMP FREDDY road manager Scott P, who has been diagnosed with cancer. The band will also auction off a Les Paul guitar from the stage (donated by Gibson Guitars) which will be signed by every performer that evening. Tickets are $50 and available at www.viperroom.com.musictoday.com.
On Saturday, July 19, CAMP FREDDY head to Las Vegas to play the grand opening of the new Wasted Space nightclub at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The classy, yet punk rock attire worn by the club's bartenders and waitresses was designed by Sorum Noce, the high-end line of rock couture from Sorum and veteran fashion designer Max Noce. CAMP FREDDY will be joined by surprise guests at this special gig and will also play with show openers DARLING STILETTOS, in their first performance with their new singer BC Jean. The all-female trailblazing punk rock dance troupe — Ace, Gina, Jersey, Lindsey, Megan and BC — is currently recording their debut CD with Sorum and Stevie Salas (guitarist for MICK JAGGER, ROD STEWART, GEORGE CLINTON) producing and Chris Lord Alge (GREEN DAY, B.B. KING, THE BLACK EYED PEAS, BAD RELIGION) mixing.
