For all of you who are planning to attend one of the upcoming USA based, ROCK’N’ROLL FANTASY CAMP, shows that will be taking place during the month of August, all across the country, we wanted to give you a heads up.
Get there early! The all-star musicians including Glenn will be onstage from 6:00PM until around 8:00PM, with their 1-day Camp aspiring musicians that they will have counseled during the same day. The headliners of KINGS X and EXTREME will then begin around 8:30PM.
The exception to this, are the shows taking place in NASHVILLE (August 11th) and LAS VEGAS (August 23rd) when the ROCK’N’ROLL FANTASY CAMP “All Star Jam” band will be headlining and of course that will include Glenn along with all the other star musicians.
Having said that, Glenn will be making a concerted effort to say “Hi” to as many fans as he can, so if you spot him, don’t be shy and be sure and say “Hi” yourself!
Just the other day, Glenn announced he has started up a page over at Twitter.com! So what is Twitter? It’s a free social networking service that allows you to send updates (otherwise known as “tweets“) which are text-based postings. Updates are displayed on a profile page and delivered to others (“followers”) who have signed up to receive them, either to their Twitter profile page or directly to their cellular/mobile phone via SMS text message! Glenn’s posts can also be found at the top of his website!
Visit this link to view his latest tweets at Twitter.com!
He plans on using it a lot, not just at home, but also when he’s on the road. In fact, he’s been Twittering away quite a lot during his current visit to Italy!
Be sure and check it out!!

You can buy the whole album, individual tracks or Ringtone (for your cellular/mobile phone)!
