Joey Gaydos Jr.

Powered by imdb

Joey was born on April 18, 1991. He started playing guitar at the age of 3, but did not get in touch with it until about 8 years old or so. In 2002, he attended a weeklong camp in Ann Arbor, Michigan called Dayjams. He had made a music video with his bandmates and after a representative viewed the movie, they contacted Joey if he was interested in auditioning for a 10-year-old guitar player in the was-upcoming movie 'School of Rock'. His family and himself flew to Chicago for the casting calll in Chicago. They were so impressed with Joey that a few weeks later he headed over to California to meet the producer, writer, and director of the movie. Then a few weeks later, he got the call back with the news that he received the part of Zack in the movie 'School of Rock'. Since the movie was released, Joey has been to premieres in Asia, Europe, and Australia. In December of 2004, nearing the end of the year, Joey released his new, self-titled album 'Joey Gaydos Jr.'.  See full bio on IMDb »
