Hello everyone!

As you all know, after my journeys to NYC and Brazil, it was time to jump right into a very exciting Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp because of two factors. First, the Playboy Mansion was where the big event night for the performances would be held, and naturally for me to have Paul Stanley as the headline guest has its significance. I always enjoy jamming and seeing him, and my campers were especially excited as we prepared a medley of KISS hits along with a Van Halen tune.

First day of camp was jamming with all the campers and then I got to work with my band, as we had to play at Guitar Center Hollywood after a few hours of rehearsal. We prepared Strutter and I got a chance to feature my three guitarists.

Guitar Center that night showed off the amazing Gibson ES 335 from Eric Clapton's Cream days, and his famous Fender "Blackie" Stratocaster. To have them up close on display along with one of Stevie Ray Vaughn's guitars, was quite a treat. After that presentation, all the bands played a tune. We did good for Strutter and I knew we would be learning more tunes for the big Playboy Mansion Party performance.

PAUL ROCKS FANTASY CAMP AT PLAYBOY MANSION
KISSONLINE / WIREIMAGE
Paul Stanley returned to Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp last night in an amazing event held at the famous Playboy Mansion! This incredible camp offered fans the opportunity to learn from and jam with their favorite musicians. During the party, Paul joined each of the camp's ten bands on stage. He played guitar with all of the bands, singing no vocals but having a great time rocking.

The atmosphere at the Playboy Mansion was rocking too! There were beautiful girls everywhere -- Playboy bunnies were dancing both on and off the stage all night, swimming in the grotto and mingling with guests. Many celebrities were in attendance too, including Rick Schroeder, Corey Feldman, Crispin Glover, Phil Collen and Ron Jeremy. Each of the fan bands had a celebrity musician as their camp counselor, and any rock fan will be familiar with them: Lita Ford, Kip Winger, Chris Slade, Mark Hudson, Phil Soussan, Billy Sheehan, Rudy Sarzo, Teddy "Zig Zag" Andreadis, and our friend Bruce Kulick.

When Bruce's band "Electric Angel" (that he was the counselor of) took the stage, Paul played an entire set with them, which included "Deuce," "Ain't Talkin 'Bout Love," and "Shout it Out Loud."

At the end of the night, many of the camp counselors jammed in an all-star band! Eric Singer joined them on stage and played drums for "Baby You Can Drive My Car," "School's Out" and "Rock and Roll All Nite." He also had a reunion of sorts with Lita Ford for "Close my Eyes Forever" (Eric's first job as a touring drummer was with Lita's band in 1984!)

Bruce Kulick plans to write a full story about the entire experience, so we'll keep you posted when that goes live.
