Walter Trout Band

Walter Trout

This highly talented and experienced blues guitarist finally formed and recorded with his own band in 1989 after a lengthy spell with John Mayall and Canned Heat. With a line-up of Jim Trapp (bass), Leroy Larson (drums) and Dan Abrams (keyboards), he debuted with Life In The Jungle in 1990.
This showcased Trout’s remarkable feel and dexterity and courted Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower and Gary Moore comparisons. Klas Anderhill took over on drums for Prisoner Of A Dream, on which the band moved into a more commercial mainstream rock direction. Much of the soulful passion was replaced for a heavier approach more akin to bands such as Europe, Whitesnake and Bon Jovi. Trout moved away from his blues roots with Transition, although his remarkable ability as a guitarist shone through an album of patchy songs.

Following a live album Trout moved to Silvertone Records, presumably in the hope of expanding his market to a wider audience. Tellin’ Stories was an exciting set of crisply recorded rock/blues yet surprisingly it was not the anticipated commercial success. A year later he was back with Provogue, having now replaced Larson and Abrams with Bernard Pershey and Martin Gerschwitz, respectively. Breaking The Rules was a quieter and more introspective album, with Trout’s contentment with life seemingly apparent from the lyrics. Positively Beale Street mixed together all of Trout’s previous styles and on this collection his guitar playing was exemplary. The slow, gospel-influenced ballad ‘Let Me Be The One’, written by Dave Williams and Mick Parker, was the album’s highlight. Trout continues to be hugely popular on the live circuit in Europe playing to thousands. Back home in Huntingdon Beach he will be playing to bar-room audiences.
