CAMP FREDDY Schedules First-Ever Concert Outside U.S. - Apr. 22, 2009

CAMP FREDDY the Los Angeles-based "jam" band featuring Dave Navarro (ex-JANE'S ADDICTION, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), Billy Morrison (ex-THE CULT bassist, current CIRCUS DIABLO vocalist), Matt Sorum (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES), Donovan Leitch (son of legendary folk singer Donovan), and Chris Chaney (JANE'S ADDICTION, ALANIS MORRISETTE) will perform outside the United States for the first time on May 18 in Cancun, Mexico. Filling in for Navarro at the gig will be Steve Stevens (BILLY IDOL). Guests will be flying to Cancun to play at a party for TIGI/Bed Head. More details will be announced soon.

CAMP FREDDY completed a four-night residency at the Roxy in Hollywood with another series of shows during December 2008. The band performed each Tuesday during the month and each week played a different setlist with different guests.

CAMP FREDDY is continuing work on what is expected to eventually be released as the band's debut album. Among the cuts that are set to appear on the effort are "20th Century Boy" (also featuring Steve Jones from THE SEX PISTOLS on lead guitar) and THIN LIZZY's "Jailbreak" (featuring ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell on vocals and Billy Duffy on lead guitar). Other guest musicians include RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith and singer Macy Gray.

Since its formation seven years ago when they rocked the opening of The Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles at the invitation of Brent Bolthouse, CAMP FREDDY has performed on both coasts of America and on national television shows ("The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", "Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn", "Last Call with Carson Daly").

Ah well.  This show has been cancelled for now due to the same reason no one else is travelling to Mexico at the moment.   ;)

Stupid disease.  Why can't they find cures for everything?  Remember when Lieberman ran on a platform of finding actual cures for diseases?  Why didn't the Dems nominate him in 2004?  We wouldn't have had four more years of Wiener-Nazi.  Okay, that's a bit off topic...
