A Very Ozzy Holiday

Yes yes yes. The rumors were true! The one and only Ozzy Osbourne took it to a whole other level last night and took the Camp Freddy Finale above and beyond! The man himself was in tip-top shape, and killed it!!
Straight from the horses mouth – check out Billy Morrison’s blog about the epic show last night!

Tired. Drained. Beat. Mentally Exhausted. Emotionally Bankrupt. Spiritually Enlightened. These words describe how I feel after five hours sleep and one of the best Camp Freddy shows in the bands seven years. The noise that the audience made when we brought the one and only Mr Ozzy Osbourne out to the stage was deafening. And Crazy Train, Iron Man and Paranoid brought the house down. I don’t care who you are – watching a true legend like Ozzy perform in a small club like that is a very special and very intense experience. Standing on the stage with him playing those iconic songs is beyond. Linda Perry, Steve Jones, Juliette Lewis, Naveen Andrews, Chris Vrenna, Mark McGrath and Royston Langdon were all part of the final show at The Roxy. And we closed the month long residency with Ozzy and huge smiles all around. The energy was electric, both from the completely sold out venue and the band onstage. Huge thank you’s go out to all the musicians and performers that took part in the shows with us. I hope everyone who played, came out, watched and experienced these gigs had as good a time as we did. I would imagine that pictures and video will be flowing freely as usual and when I get it all, I’ll put it up here. I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and thank each and every one of you for the love and support. 2009, baby. More of the same coming your way soon.

Camp Freddy and a Night of Cameos

Last night was pretty monumental – we saw the return of Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst, Steve Lukather of TOTO, and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top all rocking out! Paired with the always tenacious Navarro and Company – epic!

Also, don’t quote us on this…but if you happened to be listening to Jonesy’s show on INDIE 103.1 this morning you might have heard that the Prince of Darkness himself will be making an appearance at the Camp Freddy finale next week – true or false? We’re not saying…but it’s not to be missed!

Camp Freddy Lives On

Camp Freddy Live at The Roxy
Our little residency that could continues to get some pretty great press and is still buzzing! We miss the Camp Freddy guys and couldn’t be happier with all the love they have received – they really killed it and we can’t wait to have them back! Check out this great article from The Sunset Strip site!

One of the most bizarre and interesting moments of the evening came when the Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock was joined by Tiffany (yes, “I Think We’re Alone Now” Tiffany) for a pretty rockin’ version of the Pistols’ “Pretty Vacant.” Never thought I’d be applauding Tiffany for a gritty performance of a Sex Pistols’ tune, but there is was, on stage at the Roxy.
Also in on the fun were Incubus’ Brandon Boyd, who guested on “Good Times, Bad Times,” and Fuel’s Brett Scallions. And offering up some of the highest octane star-power of the evening was Rage Against The Machine and Los Angeles’ own Tom Morello playing guitar on “Roadhouse Blues” and “Brown Sugar,” then sitting in on drums for a rousing finale of The Stooges’ “I Wanna Be Your Dog.”
Camp Freddy’s sold out May run may be done, but my ears are still ringing from all of that great rock and roll performed by so many of the world’s best. The show was such a success that I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some more dates in the near future. But those of us who were there to witness it in person have a little piece of rock and roll history, raw, unscripted, and loud, etched into our soul!

More Sugar Ray On The Rox Please

Fresh off of Camp Freddy, Mark McGrath looked like he didn’t get enough of The Roxy. Sugar Ray got up and played two of their biggest hits for the surprised party goers at On The Rox, Fly and Every Morning. So much fun and totally unexpected. Thats why we love what we do, you will never know what will happen. Thanks to Murphy, Rodney, Stan and Mark. Always great to see you guys.

Farewell To Freddy

The month of Camp Freddy Mayhem has become this Rock N Roll machine that has been the talk of the town! It’s taken over like no one could have ever imagined. It started off great as we were so excited to be able to hold one of our Roxy contests to find the lucky openers – which allowed local bands to actually warm up the stage for Freddy. What a great opportunity. And now, we’ve had FIVE sold out shows – countless special guests – and killer set lists. Over the past 4 weeks, we’ve seen Tommy Lee, Terry Nunn, Chester of Linkin Park, Brandon Boyd of Incubus, Chino of the Deftones, Jerry Cantrell, Lemmy Kilmister, B-Real and Sen Dog, Tiffany, Metal Skool, Cory from Slipknot/Stone Sour, Tom Morrello as well as our house favorite Mark McGrath – to name a few! On top of the Sex Pistols Paul Cook, Glen Matlock and Steve Jones and GnR legends Duff and Slash! Insanity. We hate to rub it in, because the Freddy Finale tonight is of course sold out – but for the lucky, this show will take the cake! Every Thursday the chaos starts early – so make sure you stay tuned as Nic and I twitter the day away. We’ll keep you updated as always, on all the nitty gritty secrets. Thanks to all the guests and the guys – as well as the fans who have made the Roxy their nightlife staple for the month. We hope to see you all soon.

Fun with Freddy

The Metal Skool(Steel Panther) guys made a welcomed return to The Roxy to do a cameo with Camp Freddy. It rocked.
