Walter Trout

Walter Trout has been nothing short of prolific over the course of his seven decades on this Earth. He just realeased his 30th solo album over a career that has spanned the globe, and delivered notoriety as one of the great purveyors of the blues and blues rock. Trout's history is equal parts thriller, romance, suspense, and horror. There are musical firework, critical acclaim, and fists-aloft triumph, offset by wolderness years, brushed with the jaws of narcotic oblivion and the survival of an organ transplant few come back from. From 1973, when he left his New Jersey home headed to Los Sngeles, he has followed a road that afforede him an opportunity to just play, sharing the stage as a sideman with Jesse Ed Davis, Big Mama Thornton, John Lee Hooker, Lowell Fulson, Joe Tex, and of course the great John Mayhall (following a four year tenure in Canned Heat).
