20th Anniversary TOUR OF EUROPE begins

Sep 27, 2009

Walter has been rehearsing with the band relentlessly lately and they have a beautiful set planned of old and new songs. Utilizing the 4 part harmony that having Sammy, Michael, Andrew, and Walter all sing adds a whole new element to the live show. Acoustic guitars are being used as well! This tour will be a chance to hear old favorites played - many of them for the first time live.

Quotes for 20th Anniversay album

Aug 27, 2009

BBC Radio 2 "He's great - you always know what you are going to get with Walter Trout, he's fabulous". Alex Lester

Blues Matters Fabulous playing, excellent sound throughout and all summed up by that word energy. 20th Anniversary guitarist celebrates with new release of live recordings from his career & 3 new studio songs"

Guitar Mag. "His guitar shines through on both the studio & live recordings. The grooves are all top-notch.

Get Ready To Rock 4*** "In the rock/blues guitar idiom there can be few greater torch-bearers over the last 20 years than Walter Trout. He's unspoiled by progress, and we hope that continues for a very long time".

Blues in Britain "Trout's musical talent & song writing skills are evident throughout the album & he delivers the requisite killer solos with his no trademark impressive fretwork."

Gt. Yarmouth Advertiser "If you're looking for a solid introduction to this guitar legend then this will be right up your street"

Waveney Advertiser "Trout is like a fine wine he seems to get better & better as the years go by".

Blues in the South "...the music is excellent with some sometimes stunning axe wrok & of course Walter's powerful singing. Well worth getting hold of."

Classic Rock "20 yrs later & he is playing with a vigour & stamina that outstrips young pretenders less than half his age".

Classic Rock "This is a winning testament to a seasoned but still emotively charged performer."

Classic Rock Society "If ever a bluesman deserves a celebration it is Mr. Trout. He stays true to the blues when he plays them & with the new he has carefully added a touch of gloss while holding dear to the genre".

Guitar Techniques "We are taken on a roller-coaster ride through the history on one of the hardest working blues acts on the scene today - & damn fine it is, too!. If you like raunchy blues, buy it".

Total Guitar ""It's this raw quality, matched with a powerful band, that gives this music its edge. Unspoilt indeed. Blues worth carping on about".

The Crack "An essential purchase for fans of the Trout-meister, & an excellent primer for his Newcastle Academy gig on Oct. 16th

Maverick "4**** One of the greatest blues guitarists looks back over his last 20 years of hard rocking, adrenalin pumping blues."

Born in New Jersey Walter Trout, as any blues fan worth his weight in dimples will know, is a guitarist, singer and songwriter who's career began on the Jersey coast scene of the late 60's and early 70's before going on to become a sideman for artists such as Finis Tasby, Pee Wee Crayton, Lowell Fulsom, and Percy Mayfield, the guitarist for Canned Heat and then the mother of all blues bands John Mayall's Bluesbreakers where he made a name for himself sparring with second guitarist Coco Montoya. He went on to form the Walter Trout Band - although the band has also traded under Walter Trout and the Free Radicals, and Walter Trout and the Radicals - finding a ready-made audience in much of Europe and our man David Blue collared him on his way to dinner after a recent show in the UK...
