Fishof, who is no longer producing the Ringo Starr and his All-Starr band, told CelebrityAccess: "I've gone full time into the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp business, and have a Rock Camp TV show on TLC and decided that I needed a career change from the road. I'm the luckiest guy in the world to have been able to work for Ringo. I've turned the camp into a 12-months-a-year business. The camp is fulfilling my dreams of giving people back so many amazing experiences that I received from working with these amazing people." –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
