Music fan fantasies are complex. They can help us cope with life, or they can keep us from facing reality. But what happens when we do get the chance to live out our rock star dreams?
With a mixture of curiosity and skepticism, I’ve enjoyed watching VH1 Classic’s reality show Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp that debuted earlier this Fall.
The show captures what Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp has been doing since 1997, which is give music fans the chance to learn how to sing, write songs and play live like a real rock star.
So, on Sunday, November 21st, I decided to put my curiosity and skepticism to the test and head down to the three-day “Weekend Warrior” camp in Chicago to see how the rock icons featured in VH1’s show including rockers Kip Winger, Dickey Bettes, Mark Fuller and others, were helping fans live out their rock n roll dreams.
