Gary Hoey


In the 90s alternative rock came to the fore, and many guitar virtuosos found themselves cast to the side of popular culture. This wasn’t the case for Gary Hoey, whose debut album Animal Instinct (released in 1993) garnered both critical accolades and popular recognition. Gary was raised in Massachusetts and dropped out of high school to focus his time fully on playing music. He spent most of his time playing in local Boston music clubs and providing guitar lessons to other young guitarists.

In the late 80s Ozzy Osbourne was seeking someone to step in for the recently canned Jake E. Lee, Gary was offered an opportunity to try out for the job. While Zakk Wylde ended up being picked for that role, Gary’s time in Los Angeles had such an impact on him that he decided to move there. Shortly after his move he formed the band Heavy Bones with Joel Ellis (vocals), Rex Tennyson (bass), and Frankie Banail (drums). The group only released a single record before breaking up shortly thereafter.

Despite Heavy Bones quickly fizzling out, Gary wouldn’t have to wait long for success. Propelled by his cover of Focus’s 1971 hit song Hocus Pocus, delivered with his unique and energetic guitar playing, his 1993 solo album Animal Instinct quickly ascended the charts. This was quickly followed by his soundtrack to the 1994 film “Endless Summer II”.

Gary has released a dozen instrumental albums, which have over time shifted towards the surf guitar style. He has become friends with surf rock legend Dick Dale, who has lavished praise upon Gary, referring to him as one of his all-time favorite guitarists. They later worked together to record a version of Dale’s song Miserlou for the 1997 benefit album M.O.M., Vol 2: Music For Our Mother Ocean. For the same release, Gary also produced and played on a song for Jewel, who was still on the cusp of achieving success.

We think that a sincere, dedicated, talented musician like Gary Hoey, who delivers such great quality work, deserves widespread attention, strong praise and recognition of achievement. Gary Hoey is highly recommended.
