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.
