Walter Trout is preparing to return to the stage in June at no less of a venue than the Royal Albert Hall in London, England. After that he comes back to his own back yard to The Strand in San Juan Capistrano, California, and from there it's back on the road for another year of intense touring. Just business as usual for a veteran blues rocker, right?
Well, this would be business as usual for the veteran blues rocker if it were not for a debilitating illness and the resulting liver transplant that literally brought him back from death's door step. I'm not being overly dramatic, here, the man lost 160 pounds in the process, and when he first attempted to play his beloved Strat after the surgery, he had not the strength to push the string down to the fret to make a note. But, he's done it - he's back in the ring to take another swing! This is one of the most inspirational conversations I've ever had the pleasure and honor to be a part of, and I truly believe that in listening to Walter tell his tale you will be just as moved as I have been to experience this... Well, this miracle.
