We’ve wrapped up our special edition Gene Simmons Rock Camp! Special guests included Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer, Sebastian Bach, Steve Stevens, Dave Ellefson, and Scott Ian. Highlights of the camp include campers writing an original song alongside Gene Simmons, a guitar master class with Steve Stevens, and a live performance at House of Blues with Tommy Thayer!
Here’s what the campers had to say about it:
"The jet lag will wear off, but these great memories will be with me forever ! " Thanks again! -Billy L.
“To say it was a life changing experience is not an understatement. Everyone was fantastic and I would do it again in a heartbeat.” –Mark W.
“The day with Gene Simmons was quite remarkable, he spent way more time with our band than I thought he would and was really interested in working with us which wasn’t a surprise but certainly exceeded my expectations for what I thought we would take away from the time with him. Thanks to all of you at RRFC, you really have created two totally different but amazing camps for us, loads of lifetime memories and we look forward to having many more!!” –Bruce
“From the start everything was extremely well done and contributed to unforgettable four day event, each day better than the one before. From playing Van Halen songs with ‘The Evil Twin’ five minutes after check in to the Sunday night show at The House of Blues I truly can’t think of anything that would have made it better.” –John B.
