The Story

The CD kicks off with a cover of Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein", and the high energy track sets the mood for the material that follows. Over the past 15 years, Gary Hoey has established himself as one of the world's top instrumental rock guitarists, praised not only for his technical prowess, but even more so for his unique sense of melody and soul. "Wake Up Call" is the latest in a string of successful records for Gary Hoey.
