South Germanys own guitarist Van Nuys first appeared on the scene as founding Member of the Stuttgart City Punk Band Toxic Widow. During his time with the band they became a well known club act, supporting local and international artists such as King Chrome, The Dark Shadows and the punk legend U.S. Bombs.
In 2012, the Stuttgart based Rockers Shotgun Express, asked Van to temporarily join their band to replace their absent rhythm guitarist on five shows. His very first appearance with the group was a performance at the German Rock & Pop Awards, where they won Best Rock Artist.
Growing tension between Nuys and Toxic Widows lead singer, decided him to leave the band in mid 2014.
Ever since then, he is working on new music to be presented under his own name and in several projects.
