Daltrey joins fantasy rock camp
Roger Daltrey
Daltrey says he feels "quite passionate" about the camp
Rock stars including Roger Daltrey of The Who and The Eagles' Joe Walsh will headline the 10th Rock'n'Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas in November.

The camps give music fans the chance to jam and record with their rock heroes.

"Rock'n'Roll Fantasy Camp reminds me of what it used to be like when we first started, when we were rough and ready... it's fantastic," said Daltrey.

The five-day event culminates in a live concert where music lovers join the rock stars on stage.

Other musicians taking part include Slash, formerly of Guns N'Roses and now of Velvet Revolver, Motley Crue's Vince Neil, Jack Bruce from Cream and Nicko McBrain from Iron Maiden.

Simpsons show

It costs $9,499 (4,731) to attend the five-day event, titled the Ultimate Rock Star Experience Veteran's Day Weekend.

Fans will be able to download original songs recorded at the camp via iTunes.

The camp once featured in a Simpsons episode where the character Homer jammed with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Tom Petty and Elvis Costello.

The event was started by David Fishof, who used to produce rock tours including Ringo's All-Starr Band and The Monkees' 20th Anniversary tour.

Camps also take place in Hollywood and at the Abbey Road Studios in London.
