When the body of a rich adventure-seeker is found in a hotel laundry machine, Booth and Brennan are led to the last place he was seen: a Rock 'n Roll Fantasy Camp. While Brennan and Booth lead the investigation outside the lab, Hodgins, Angela and intern Arastoo use a fragment of prehistoric woolly mammoth tusk - found with the remains - and Angela's knowledge of the music industry to connect the evidence to potential suspects.

Did You Know?


When Booth is disappointed when seeing the Rock and Roll Seminar line, he comments "Does anybody remember laughter?". This is a line Robert Plant (lead singer of Led Zeppelin) used to add to the live version performances of "Stairway to Heaven". See more »


When Booth and Brennan are singing 'Hot Blooded'(just before Cam calls), the scene cuts to the keyboard player and you hear a repeated high note on the keys. However, the note corresponds with the performer striking a key repeatedly with his left had which would be a low note, not a high one. See more »


Special Agent Seeley Booth: No, no, no, no! We are *not* going to be discussing your daughter's sex life. Because A: she's a good girl. She doesn't have sex. And B: you're touching a dead body.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I don't follow your logic.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: I'm always touching a dead body, Seely.

A strange episode, even for BONES. The remains of a guitarist turn up in a laundromat, which leads B&B to a rock and roll camp, led by a very strange man. This proves the least interesting part of the episode, other than having B&B get up on stage to perform together at one point. The problem in dealing with a rock and roll plot is that everything can look dated or artificial even when the episode or movie is new. As a subplot, Cam goes looking for a doctor for her adopted daughter, which leads to some truly funny bits of business. The daughter is growing up fast, and it doesn't help that the doctor they visit is a handsome, single individual who is instantly smitten with Cam.
