Release an album where legends such as John Mayall, Joe Bonamassa, Randy Bachman, Warren Haynes, Charlie Musselwite, Mike Zito, Eric Gales, Edgar Winter, or John Németh, give an account of the importance of Walter Trout.
He could be considered the best blues rock guitarist in the world still active. With more than forty years of musical career and more than twenty albums released, Walter Trout’s career begins in the late ’60s on the Jersey coast. In the early ’70s he moved to Los Angeles where he plays as a session musician to accompany musicians such as Percy Mayfield and Deacon Jones. He was part of the bands that accompanied John Lee Hooker and Joe Tex. In 1981 he joined the veteran blues band Canned Heat, where he remained until 1985, the year in which he was invited to join John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers.
In 1990 Thomas Helweg, a Danish concert promoter, proposed to him to form his own band to organize a tour by Europe. In this way, the Walter Trout Band (later Walter Trout & The Radicals) was born, which achieved enormous success in the old continent, especially in Scandinavia. That same year he made his recording debut releasing his first album, “Life in the Jungle”. Since then, his career has been spectacular, and he has been nominated for the Blues Music Awards for his album tribute to Luther Dickinson. In 2015 it overcame a hepatitis C thanks to the economic donations of its fans, and has returned with more force to the scenarios.
