"Hard Core Blues Rock" Tour in March 2007

Nov 29, 2006

UNIQUE ONE TIME ONLY band line-up

"Hard Core Blues Rock" tour in March 2007

"One evening in London on the recent European tour Walter and the band had to do the entire show without Sammy Avila on keys. Sammy's B3 had broken down and did not want to cooperate in time for the show to begin. It was an evening of tension for Walter at first: How was he going to get through an evening without his trusted sidekick? Well, it turned out that the mix of an enthusiastic London audience, and more ROOM FOR WALTER'S GUITAR was a powerful propellant, and Walter and his one-night-only power trio blew through a very inspired evening with more room for bass/guitar interplay and spontaneous errands into the land of "Hard Core Blues Rock".

So Walter decided to give this form of the band a small tour in the spring.

It was a liberating but also limiting experience to play as just three spontaneous blues rockers, but have no fear, there are no - repeat absolutely NO PLANS - to make this a permanent version of the Radicals. It is a chance to do a spontaneous hard core guitar driven evening of head banging balls out blues, not a permanent solution for the kind of music that Walter wants to play.

So anybody with the desire to experience the "hard core" trio will have a maybe once in a lifetime opportunity in the March into early April tour. We will have only 12 shows in the UK, a few in Holland and a handful in Germany.

Check "Tour Dates" for more information as it comes in.

Mesa Boogie Factory

Sep 8, 2006

During a break in the touring on the August USA tour, the band (and a couple of Walter's kids) stopped at the Mesa Boogie factory in Petaluma, CA and received a tour of the factory. Everybody had a great time discovering the inner workings, and the careful production of each individual amp. The visit gave us great insights into why Mesa Boogie amps are just as much a piece of art, as they are great sounding music machines! Thanks Mesa Boogie!

What's In a Band Name?

Press Release 16
What's in a Band Name?

The Feds May Want to Know!

Blues veteran Walter Trout has been touring and recording with his band "The Radicals" since 2000. Nobody thought much about the name in 2000. It was just a clever band name. In fact, in 1999 they called themselves "The Free Radicals" before shortening it a year later to just "The Radicals".

But now, calling themselves "The Radicals" may be generating unwarranted attention from The Feds who have recently visited the website of Walter Trout and The Radicals some 81 times. www.waltertrout.com

Walter Trout - CD - Full Circle

With "Full Circle" Walter Trout has realized a long held dream: To invite some of the musicians he admires and respects in the studio to compose and play together. "Full Circle" is a journey within the range of styles that is the blues genre. "Full Circle" is about sharing that format honestly and with integrity.

"Full Circle" is not just another Walter Trout CD! It is a celebration of where the blues world is, where it has been and where it is going. Walter's focus with "Full Circle" was to break down artificial barriers between the music of "blues purists" and "blues rockers".

"Full circle" is about Walter's desire to explore the many aspects of the Blues and show that there are no boundaries between musicians that respect each other.

His goal: To celebrate that the Blues is alive as a diverse art form; to show that the Blues is vibrant, and is not held hostage by the critics who want to brand, label and limit its expression.

With "Full Circle," Walter and his friends are paying homage to the blues as a living testimony to the people and the places that create this honest form of music.

Jeff Healey
Joe Bonamassa
Coco Montoya
Bernard Allison
Eric Sardinas

CD/DVD Review in Blues Matters Magazine Issue #29

Jan 3, 2006

Walter Trout and the Radicals - Relentless
Ruf Records. 10 tracks. 73.01 mins.

This album was recorded live over a two-day period at The Paradiso in Amsterdam on May 13th and 14th 2003. An album of all new songs never recorded before and never in front of a live audience. It was recorded over the two days for the CD as well as a new DVD in 5:1 surround sound plus all the added extras of interviews, extra tracks and behind the scenes etc. As far as I know this has never been attempted before.
The album itself is absolutely brilliant, and so refreshing to buy and hear an album of one of your favourite artists where, you have not heard any of the tracks recorded before (not even one cover). Walter wrote 12 out of the 14 tracks, the other two were written by Walter and his wife Marie, and the other by the band (Walter, Jimmy, Sammy and Joey). Personally I think this is his best album he has ever done. Walter has been one of my favourites for a long time, so I may be a little bias when I say that this is the best album around at the moment. It's not JUST the quality of the musicians, it's not JUST the quality of the songs, and it's not JUST the quality of the recording, mixing, and production...IT'S JUST QUALITY... Like the album title suggests, Walter, his guitar and the band are "relentless".

Issue 29 edition of BLUES MATTERS! (Blues Without The Blinkers!) also includes SEAN WEBSTER, KATIE MELUA, JOHN MAYALL, BONNIE RAITT, MIKE BATT, STEVEN SEAGAL, CREAM, BETTYE LAVETTE, CHUCK BERRY, MR.

"Hard Core Blues Rock" tour in March 2007

"One evening in London on the recent European tour Walter and the band had to do the entire show without Sammy Avila on keys. Sammy's B3 had broken down and did not want to cooperate in time for the show to begin. It was an evening of tension for Walter at first: How was he going to get through an evening without his trusted sidekick? Well, it turned out that the mix of an enthusiastic London audience, and more ROOM FOR WALTER'S GUITAR was a powerful propellant, and Walter and his one-night-only power trio blew through a very inspired evening with more room for bass/guitar interplay and spontaneous errands into the land of "Hard Core Blues Rock".

It was a liberating but also limiting experience to play as just three spontaneous blues rockers, but have no fear, there are no - repeat absolutely NO PLANS - to make this a permanent version of the Radicals. It is a chance to do a spontaneous hard core guitar driven evening of head banging balls out blues, not a permanent solution for the kind of music that Walter wants to play.

CD/DVD Review in Blues Matters Magazine Issue #29

Jan 3, 2006

Walter Trout and the Radicals - Relentless
Ruf Records. 10 tracks. 73.01 mins.

This album was recorded live over a two-day period at The Paradiso in Amsterdam on May 13th and 14th 2003. An album of all new songs never recorded before and never in front of a live audience. It was recorded over the two days for the CD as well as a new DVD in 5:1 surround sound plus all the added extras of interviews, extra tracks and behind the scenes etc. As far as I know this has never been attempted before.
The album itself is absolutely brilliant, and so refreshing to buy and hear an album of one of your favourite artists where, you have not heard any of the tracks recorded before (not even one cover). Walter wrote 12 out of the 14 tracks, the other two were written by Walter and his wife Marie, and the other by the band (Walter, Jimmy, Sammy and Joey). Personally I think this is his best album he has ever done. Walter has been one of my favourites for a long time, so I may be a little bias when I say that this is the best album around at the moment. It's not JUST the quality of the musicians, it's not JUST the quality of the songs, and it's not JUST the quality of the recording, mixing, and production...IT'S JUST QUALITY... Like the album title suggests, Walter, his guitar and the band are "relentless".
