OUTSTANDING HARD-EDGED HEAVY GUITAR DRIVEN BLUES/ROCK POWER TRIO RIFFAGE FROM THE TEXAS GUITAR LEGEND.

"Koko's Hideaway", the third solo disc from Austin, Texas blues/rock heavy guitar legend Van Wilks, features 15 solid trax (73 minutes) of outstanding, compelling, hard- edged heavy guitar driven blues/rock power trio riffage at it's best. Van Wilks is one of those rare gifted players who has created his own style and sound and he really "shines" on the "Koko's Hideaway" disc. Not only is Van Wilks a brilliant axeslinger, he also has an extremely kool soulful melodic vocal delivery that sets him apart from the rest and far surpasses the norm. On top of which, Van Wilks is an excellent song-writer / riffmaster which is clearly evident on "Koko's Hideaway".

The "Koko's Hideaway" disc is HIGHLY recommended to fans of Z.Z. TOP, ERIC JOHNSON, S.R.V., DOYLE BRAMHALL, HENDRIX, TROWER, JOHNNY WINTER, RORY GALLAGHER, JEFF BECK and any other kool outstanding blues/rock heavy guitar cats you can think of. Van Wilks is right up there with the best of them.

As an added bonus, "Koko's HIdeaway" features awesome fellow Texas heavy guitar legend, Eric Johnson as a "special musical guest" on the killer get-down instrumental track called "Vanatized". Both E.J. and V.W. rip it up in fine bad-ass Texas heavy guitar fashion on this awesome jam.

Van Wilks is a four time Austin Music Chronicle Musical Poll winner and has been inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame. It's no secret that Billy Gibbons (Z.Z. Top) is one of Van Wilks' biggest fans and supporters. It's time for you to find out for yourself, get with Van Wilks and spend some quality time at the awesome "Koko's Hideaway". It's time to get "Vanatized" and let Van Wilks rock your blues away!!!
