Walter Trout’s pedigree and contributions to our musical heritage would fill multiple and significant chapters in the history of blues-rock guitar, from its birth to the present day. Walter cut his teeth as a sideman for John Lee Hooker, Percy Mayfield, Big Mama Thornton, Joe Tex, and many others. Then three years with Canned Heat and a 5-year stint with John Mayall and The Bluesbreakers.
In 1989, The London Times called Walter’s first solo album, Life In The Jungle, “The greatest album in the history of the blues-rock genre!” 30 albums later, Walter Trout is still regarded as, ”one of the most talented rock and blues players on the world’s stage,” as stated by John Mayall.
