Camp Freddy is a group of established musicians who play rock and roll covers at various shows around America.

The band is named after a character in The Italian Job movie and was created for the sole purpose of having a good time. Guitarist Billy Morrison describes them as: "...not a band, but it is also way more than a jam session. Camp Freddy is an ‘Occasional Happening’, a freak of (Hollywood) nature."

There are five consistent members of Camp Freddy as listed below, but each performance features guest performances from many respected musicians.[1] Scott Weiland was a core member and vocalist for the band from March 2006 until April 2008, when his decision to leave Velvet Revolver for Stone Temple Pilots caused tension between Matt Sorum and Weiland, leading to his departure from the group being announced on the April 2, 2008 edition of Camp Freddy Radio.

Camp Freddy, with producer Mike Clink, is currently recording an album which will mirror the live shows, with guests performing on each track. Their first single, "Surrender", was released on 1 September 2006 and is featured in the film "Employee of the Month". The song is a cover of the Cheap Trick hit. Another Camp Freddy track will be available on iTunes exclusively on December 12th. It is the bands Christmas single - a cover of Slade's Merry Xmas Everybody. The track will be available for download on iTunes US, UK and Europe and a video will also be released the same day.

On Saturday evenings the band members (usually Navarro and Morrison) host a radio show that takes place between the hours of 18:00 and 20:00 PT on the Los Angeles based Indie 103.1 FM radio station. They play their selection of music and discuss almost anything, including a popular segment where they phone call girls from ads in the back of L.A. Weekly.

Podcasts can be found for each show in an on demand archive on or Dave Navarro's
