    • World renowned rock guitarist Gary Hoey's first break came in 1987 when Ozzy Osbourne liked Hoey’s tape enough to fly him to LA for an audition. Although they went with Zakk Wylde, Ozzy recommended Hoey moved to LA and felt he would get noticed.  “I remember Ozzy mumbling in this British accent but did not understand a word.  Sharon said, “You did not get the gig but move to LA”.”  So I did, Thanks Ozzy.  In 1992 Gary's cover of “Hocus Pocus” rocketed into the Billboard’s Top 5 Rock Tracks.  With a collection of 19 albums it’s no wonder Gary Hoey is listed as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time. In 1994 Hoey scored the successful “Endless Summer II” soundtrack for New Line Cinema.  In 2012, Hoey 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.  Hoey 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.
