Former Van Halen singer and the current member of The Circle, Sammy Hagar, recently posted a new article on his Twitter account and announced that he will be one of the famous rockstars who will join the cast of the long-awaited ‘Rock Camp‘ documentary.
As you probably know, millions of rock fans have been excitedly waiting for February 16, which is the online release date of the interesting documentary featuring numerous rockstars such as Alice Cooper, Slash, Gene Simmons, and of course Sammy Hagar. The documentary was supposed to be released with a theatre screening but the premier was moved to online platforms due to the ongoing pandemic.
The documentary will be based on ‘Rock ‘n Roll Fantasy Camp’ which was founded in 1997 by David Fishof and has taken place every year since then. In this high quality but also quite pricey camp, approximately 6,000 people have had the chance to meet up with influential rock figures, play, write and record music in professional studios.
The attendees would also form their own bands with each having a rockstar as a mentor and then perform live on stage at famous venues. It should not be surprising that a camp like this became the perfect material from which a documentary could be made out of. With his recent tweet, Sammy Hagar revealed that he too will be a part of ‘Rock Camp: The Movie’ as he has been a mentor in the camp four times.
Here’s what Sammy Hagar said in his tweet:
“I have been a part of Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp four times and it’s always such a blast playing with people that love playing music.
Their enthusiasm and joy for playing an instrument are contagious. It’s like a shot in the arm of rejuvenation.”
