Members of Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains and Jane’s Addiction have signed on to offer up tips and advice at an upcoming Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas.

Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell, Stone Temple Pilots’ Dean DeLeo and Jane’s Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins will team up for sessions during the summer event at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

The rock trio will join regular counsellors Peter Klett from Candlebox and former Quiet Riot and Whitesnake star Rudy Sarso for the camp, which this year will focus on the sound of grunge.

Campers will run through songs performed by Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden and then perform them live at the House of Blues as part of the event’s finale in August.

Michael Jackson’s hometown plans three-day birthday bash

FILE - In this March 5, 2009 file photo, Michael Jackson is shown at a press conference in London. Testimony from AEG Live executive Paul Gongaware on his interactions with Jackson and his negotiations with the singer’s doctor dominated the fifth week of a civil case against the company filed by the superstar’s mother, Katherine. On Tuesday May 28, 2013, Gongaware reluctantly acknowledged that he negotiated the $150,000 per month rate that Jackson’s doctor expected to be paid to serve on the “This Is It” tour.

The King of Pop's boyhood home of Gary, Indiana will celebrate this weekend with the Michael Jackson Tribute Festival of the Arts.
