Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES), Tommy Lee (MÖTLEY CRÜE) and Chester Bennington (LINKIN PARK) are among the guest musicians who joined all-star cover band CAMP FREDDY last night (May 8) for its performance at the Roxy in West Hollywood, California.

This was the second of the four-night Roxy residency for CAMP FREDDY, which features Billy Morrison (CIRCUS DIABLO, THE CULT), Dave Navarro (JANE'S ADDICTION, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), Matt Sorum (GUNS N' ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER), Donovan Leitch (son of singer Donovan), and Chris Chaney (JANE'S ADDICTION).

According to an in-depth review posted on the ARTISTdirect web site, "The best surprise came when Tommy Lee took over a drum kit facing Sorum and the two launched into a full-on drum duel at the end of the song. Lee flipped sticks and hit hard, facing off with Sorum's calculated, precise pummeling. Then Slash hit the stage and helped bring the house down. When the top hat-donning legend walked out, Navarro smirked. 'Can someone please get Slash a guitar? Is that hard?' 'Appetite for Destruction' classic 'It's So Easy' brought everyone back to the gutter days. Duff McKagan belted out the bass line while doing a throaty and worthy Axl rendition. Slash and Navarro jammed together, volleying lead lines in a completely kinetic fashion that sparked energy from the stage. Both dominated their fret boards, bending notes and ripping through solos."

Anybody see the video of Slash and Chester Bennington doing Highway to Hell with Camp Freddy?  I hate Linkin Park but Chester really ripped on Highway to Hell, great voice, it's just a shame he can't write a good song himself.
