Bluesrocker WALTER TROUT harrt mit 71 Jahren der Dinge, die noch kommen

Whether you mention the name Walter Trout to Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd or John Mayall, praise immediately follows. The U.S. East Coast musician has earned these accolades over the past four decades with his consistently high-quality work on the guitar and on the microphone in the studio and on the world stages. When this eclipsed issue is published, he is currently on a blues rock cruise in the Aegean Sea with 24 other acts such as Bonamassa, King King or Keb' Mo'. Without much of a breather, the tour continues on both sides of the Atlantic after that. And in October he is extensively on tour in Germany. In his luggage he has the new album "Ride".

WALTER TROUT - Alive and kicking

The tale of Walter Trout's suffering, who was able to get a new liver transplant thanks to donations from fans, among other things, did not end after the operation in May 2014. It took a felt eternity until family, friends, colleagues, fans and the record company were certain that his body would take on the new organ and Trout could make music again with full power. "Battle Scars" is the comeback of New Jersey-born guitarists and singers. This album catapults him back onto the musical map with full force. This makes it easier for many who had already written off the former Canned-Heat and Bluesbreakers member. But the 64-year-old, who at a young age gave drugs and later alcohol, is bursting with fresh life energy.

eclipsed: It's a big relief we can talk to a healthy Walter Trout.
