Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page
World renowned rock guitarist Gary Hoey takes on the
Blues with his new album, “Deja Blues,” to be released in November 2012 on
Wazoo Music Group. “This is an album of original blues songs I’ve wanted to
record for a long time. The Blues has always been near and dear to my heart,
I have so much respect for it. When I’m recording a blues song, it’s a 5
minute journey and you can’t take a breath, you can’t keep punching in the
recording button to fix stuff or it loses the vibe.”
Hoey recently produced and co-wrote The Queen Of Metal Lita Ford’s latest release “Living Like Runaway” for SPV records to rave reviews, “It was a thrill to work with Lita she is a true rocker a pioneer for woman in rock, and she’s a kick ass guitar player”.
With a collection of 18 albums and a #5 Billboard Rock hit with “Hocus Pocus” it’s no wonder Gary Hoey is listed as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time. Gary’s clients have included Walt Disney films, ESPN, New Line Cinema, and scoring the Roller Coaster “California Screaming” songs placed in “Office Space”, “Deck The Halls” with Danny Devito, Beethoven III (The dog movie) Endless Summer II full score.
Hoey has toured and traded licks with the likes of Jeff Beck, Brian May of Queen, Ted Nugent, Joe Satriani, The Doobie Brothers, Foreigner, Styx, Steve Vai, Peter Frampton, and Dick Dale.
