"The best night of music so far in Park City this long weekend was Monday night's Harry O's performance of Camp Freddy, a rock-star supergroup that played covers for 90 minutes.

I originally wasn't going to make the trip to Harry O's from Sugar House because I was battling a fierce cold which make my voice feel the way Tom Waits' voice sounds. But I couldn't pass it up.

The band's Monday incarnation was a who's who of rock: Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray), Matt Sorum (Guns n' Roses, Velvet Revolver), Billy Morrison (The Cult, Circus Diablo), Chris Chaney (Jane's Addiction), Donovan Lietch Jr. (Nancy Boy), Billy Duffy (The Cult), Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Steve Stevens (Billy Idol's band), Shaun White (pro snowboarder/skateboarder) and, not least, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. It was great to get up to the stage and fist pump (although mine was covered in snot).

Here's some of the highlights:

-- Gibbons and the band launching into a heavy version of Jimi Hendrix's "Foxy Lady" that initially sounded like they were going to cover "Nookie"
-- Stevens playing the guitar behind his head during two Idol songs, "Rebel Yell" and "White Wedding"
-- McGrath doing his best Johnny Rotten impression when singing the Sex Pistols' "EMI"
-- The band dedicating a cover of the Cars' "Just What I Needed" to Barack Obama
-- Taylor screaming a manic version of Motorhead's "Ace of Spades," and then remarking, "I just had a f_____ aneurysm"
-- McGrath saying Robert Redford requested the band play Ted Nugent, so they played "Cat Scratch Fever"
-- The entire band closing with the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog""
