"Neon Highway Blues", Gary's latest release, carries its 11 tracks with the confidence and assuredness of a veteran, and the freshness of someone who's still in the process of discovery and refinement - with the help of famous friends such as Eric Gales, Lance Lopez, Josh Smith and Hoey's 17-year-old son Ian Hoey. The release of "Neon Highway Blues" will, of course, take Gary Hoey back on the highways and byways for plenty of touring and playing, well, the blues - and more. He can't yet predict where the next road will take him, but Hoey is confident it will be an adventure.
"It's great to hear Gary sing and play the blues with his trademark intensity, feel and authenticity. And the guitar tonesboth vintage and modern at the same time." - Joe Satriani
In 2012, he produced and co-wrote The Queen Of Metal, Lita Ford's latest release "Living Like Runaway" for SPV records to rave reviews. As Music Director for Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp, he's worked with legends like Joe Perry, Roger Daltrey, Yes, blues icon Johnny Winter, Robben Ford, Leslie West, and KISS drummer, Peter Criss. And he has toured and traded licks with the likes of Jeff Beck, Brian May of Queen, Ted Nugent, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Peter Frampton, and Dick Dale.
With a collection of 21 albums it's no wonder Gary Hoey is listed as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time.
