VH1 Classic and Mark Burnett Give Music Fans a Chance of a Lifetime on 'Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp'

"Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp" Premieres Saturday, Oct. 16 at 10 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, Oct. 8 -- Put away your sleeping bags and pack up your guitar, as it's going to be blood, sweat and tears when VH1 Classic and executive producer Mark Burnett take viewers on the adventure of a lifetime on the new original series "Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp" premiering Saturday, October 16 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Hosted by Carrie Keagan, 15 "average Joe" musicians from a variety of backgrounds and cities will go through a transformative process of becoming true rock stars at "Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp." Broken into three groups of five, each group will be assigned a rock star counselor (Rudy Sarzo, Kip Winger and Mark Hudson) who will give tough love and guidance to the wannabe rockers, transforming the weak campers from quiet nice guys to loud rockin' front men. For one week these professional football players, mechanics and realtors will form bands, rehearse and learn the ropes from other rock gods who drop by including Ace Frehley, Michael Anthony, Bret Michaels and many more. With the music know-how, fresh looks and rock star swagger in place, these transformed musicians will take the stage performing before a live audience and the stakes couldn't be higher. Fans will pick the best band, giving them an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform with a legendary rock artist. Only a true rock star can survive "Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp." Campers on the series include:

Cory - football player with Miami Dolphins from Gig Harbor, WA, currently living in Miami

Kieron - voiceover artist from Airdrie, Scotland, currently living in Los Angeles

John - salesman from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, currently living in Los Angeles
