Paul Stanley And Lita Ford Do KISS At Rock n` Roll Fantasy Camp; Video

KISS guitarist Paul Stanley and rocker Lita Ford are seen in rehearsal at the latest edition of the Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp.

The two are just some of the name musician involved this month at the current Hollywood camp; Billy Sheehan (David Lee Roth, Steve Vai), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne) and Nils Lofgren (E Street Band) are among those jamming with wannabe and experienced players at the rock retreat.

Ford spoke with
About Los Angeles recently to share some of her thoughts on the experience.

“Anyone and any age is fine,” says Lita on who should sign up. “The last Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp had an all-kid band that absolutely smoked, and they even had an all-girl band.”

“I really can't say for sure why it is that there are more men then woman in rock, but at Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, everyone is welcome,” Ford continues.“Like I always said in the past, you don't need testicles to play guitar, or whatever your favorite rock n’ roll instrument is. For us females, well, let's just say that we wear ours on our chest! (laughs)”

Ford has a little advice for campers regarding which LA venue is THE place to play.

“I say the Whisky. Long live the Whisky A Go Go,” advises Lita. “The place is historic. It’s a place where bands that do get in are usually of some credibility. It’s an awesome place for showcases to managers, labels, or anyone. If those walls could talk, my God the stories they would tell.”
