7 amazing rock n’ roll stories are already planned for the event:



Carla D’Errico is an actress, writer, and artist. Metal is her muse and spirit. All her life she’s been the different kid. Being a girl metalhead on top of that made her stick out even more. In the beginning she was reluctant to show her metal side for fear of judgment. She was already being bullied for enough reasons. But as she grew up, she realized that if she didn’t stand up for herself, no one else would. And so she began to fight for herself and in turn found herself. And then she embraced her metal side and now wears it proudly. She has known deep darkness in her life but does not fear it. Instead, she feels called to reach others like herself. People need to know that they are not alone. It’s okay to be different, to be weird. It’s that uniqueness that sets you apart from everyone else. If you stick out, embrace it, and use it, because it means that you are meant for more. She has made it her mission to find ways to broadcast her message, whether in person, her acting, art, or writing. In fact, she has been working on a novel series for the past five years about a metal band and being the different kid.

Guerin will be reading a passage from Jerry Lee Lewis’ biography, Hellfire


Guerin Barry, grew up in the 50’s and with his friends, helped invent Rock and Roll.  There were a few people who were the architects of rock, who copied no one, who invented the form, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Bill Haley and Jerry Lee Lewis.  At Alan Freed’s Rock and Roll Reviews at the Brooklyn Paramount, he stood, pressed against the edge of the stage while these crazy bastards drove the audiences into a frenzy.  As a young man, Guerin picked up the guitar and played for his friends.  Doo Wop was big in New York City and he sang bass with whoever wanted to strike up a tune in the subway or anywhere else they could find a good echo.  After traveling around the East coast as a folk singer, he started singing 50’s rock again.  Coming to LA in the mid 70s, Guerin became an actor appearing in feature films (Empire Strikes Back) and TV (lots).  In the 80s, he answered an ad and became a member of the retro-rock group, Sha Na Na (Woodstock, prom band in the movie Grease, TV show from 77 to 82).  During the four-year hiatus from acting, he played in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bermuda, the Caribbean and all over North America.  During that time, he shared a bill at the Beverly Theatre in Beverly, Massachusetts with The Killer himself, Jerry Lee Lewis.  Lately, he plays bass with a shredding blues power trio when he can find the time from his busy on camera and voice over acting career.

kelly_leon_guerrero_actressABOUT KELLY LEON GUERRERO:

Kelly Leon Guerrero is an Actress, Philanthropist and Burn Survivor.
In 2012, 13% of Kelly’s body was burned in a fire. During the year long recovery process, she questioned the meaning of her existence. It wasn’t selfies or “likes” on a picture…it was love and freedom. She realized that humanity is a team and we have a responsibility to help those who are weakest among us. We also have a responsibility to ourselves–to follow the secret dreams in our hearts and to fight everyday to be as weird as we want to be. She reminds herself often: “”I can do whatever the f*ck I want because I know what it feels like to be burned alive.”

She started out writing album and concert reviews in college, her first interview being Paul Barker of Ministry. She then got a job as a production assistant for Fuse’s popular metal show, Uranium, where she filmed an interview with Dio. She recently starred in and directed a Kickstarter-funded comedy TV pilot, Queen Gorya, where she plays a popular horror hostess being stalked by a Crowley influenced cult of fanboys.

Rantz Hoseley moved to Los Angeles in 1984 to make it big to the sound of high speed arpeggios on the Sunset Strip. Having worked on rock videos for Aerosmith, the Scorpions and Whitesnake, he escaped the drug-fueled mayhem and insanity to return to Washington State. Where he promptly got into a grunge band. He’s done many things to make money, including screenwriting, comic books and art direction.
