Who doesn’t want to be a rockstar? After years of producing rock tours throughout the world and working with icons like Roger Daltrey, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, and so many more, David Fishof wanted to capture the rock ‘n’ roll experience for everyone. He was inspired to create the one-of-a-kind Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp, where over the past twenty-five years 6,000 campers and counselors have lived, played, and become family with rockstars. Campers get to meet and jam with their musical idols—including Joe Perry, Vince Neil, Jack Bruce, and Jeff Beck—in such legendary venues like Abbey Road Studios in London, Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood, and Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.
Rock Camp: An Oral History shares the history of the camp through interviews from the people who got to live out their dreams. Fishof gives a behind-the-scenes look at the origins, early struggles, and challenges he faced to meet the level of excellence he envisioned for the campers and rockers. With original photos and illustrations, the camp experience comes to life and celebrates the heart of its mission: ordinary fans right in the middle of it all!
A portion of the proceeds from the book directly benefit the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp Foundation.
Whether he’s producing a tour, assembling the All-Starr band with Ringo Starr, or writing a best-selling book, David Fishof is always dreaming. Hailed as one of the most creative and innovation entertainment producers in the world, Fishof has worked with Roger Daltrey, The Monkees, Levon Helm, and more. He resides in Los Angeles and is the proud father of five, grandfather of seven, and husband of Karen Finkel.
