Camp Freddy to Release Cover of Slade's Merry Xmas Everybody on iTunes

What timing is all I can say. I just wrote about Slade's 1973 classic "Merry Xmas Everybody" the other day, noting that the re-release of their single will be coming out in the UK on December 4th. Funnily enough, Camp Freddy will also be releasing their version of the song exclusively on iTunes (US, UK and Europe) on December 12th. According to Dave Navarro's blog, a video for the single will be released on the same day. They'll also be performing at Indie 103.1 FM's Wreck The Halls event at The Avalon in Los Angeles on December 7th with all proceeds going to the Musicians Assistance Program/MusiCares.

That should be a fun night at The Avalon - I wonder if they'll be playing "Merry Christmas Everybody" at the show. It would be a good way to start off the Christmas season for those lucky enough to be able to attend. Lily Allen, Drive A and The Darling Stilettos will also be performing.

Camp Freddy is a group of musicians who get together when they can, to play music and have a good time - Billy Morrison (The Cult/Circus Diablo), Dave Navarro (Janes Addiction/The Panic Channel), Matt Sorum (Guns N Roses/Velvet Revolver), Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots/Velvet Revolver), Donovan Leitch (son of legendary folk singer Donovan), and Chris Chaney (Janes Addiction/Alanis Morrisette) are normally in the line-up with guest musicians joining them on stage including Slash, Duff McKagan, Stephen Perkins and many more.
