Rock News for Tuesday 6th April, 2010

Hey all, well, we've just had an incredible stormy morning with some serious golf ball and bigger size hailstones coming down here, amidst a huge thunderstorm, but that's passed now so, just a gloomy Tuesday afternoon, here in Michigan.

Not too much news for you today, kind of quiet out there on all counts, so I'm trying to get some reviews wrapped up to post for you folks.
Have a great week!


HOLLYWOOD, CA (April 5, 2010) – Axe-slinger Gary Hoey is embarking on an exclusive run of tour dates with Jeff Beck and will perform acoustically an array of favorites. These shows come in the middle of Hoey’s spring run of National guitar clinics running up and down the East Coast.
These clinics start April 6 in Allentown, PA and continue till the end of May.

Hoey has been busy on many projects and 2010 is no different. He is currently wrapping up his latest album 'UTOPIA,' which will release on his own label Wazoo Music. Hoey also recently participated in Rock n’ Roll Fantasy camp where he joined an amazing line-up of rockstars such as Michael Anthony, Ace Frehley, Mark Farner and many more. This year’s camp was filmed for a new VH1 Classic reality show shot by reality show master Mark Burnett.

Hoey also recorded Jeff Beck’s “El Becko” and is on the upcoming release of the 'Les Paul Dedication – Guitar Masters Volume 3,' releases this summer. In late June, he will appear in Bangkok, Malaysia and Tokyo and of course the year will wrap up with Hoey’s Annual Ho Ho Hoey Rockin’ Holiday Tour beginning in mid November, stopping in approximately 20 US cities. Its Hoeys continual hard work and drive for his fans that make him one of the most sought after guitar guru’s in the business.

With a collection of 16 albums and five top 20 Billboard hits, it’s clear to see why Gary Hoey is listed in the top 100 greatest guitar players of all time. Whether Hoey plays rock, blues, surf or Christmas, Hoey’s command of each style makes his live show one of the most exciting on the circuit today.
