Wal­ter Trout is back!

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

The last year is when the blues truly came call­ing and I came face to face with death more than once.

aF­ter a liver trans­plant, and ex­ten­sive re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, Wal­ter trout feels strong enough to re­sume his ca­reer of 50 plus years and has an­nounced his plans to re­turn to stages across the globe in 2015. trout shares; “the last year has been one where the blues truly came call­ing, and i came face to face with death more than once. My wife moved me to ne­braska to im­prove my chances of get­ting a life-sav­ing liver trans­plant, and af­ter a long wait, i got my new liver on May 26th, 2014.

since then i have been filled with im­mense grat­i­tude - for the fans who sup­ported me via fundrais­ers, cards, mes­sages, thoughts and prayers, for the donor and his or her fam­ily, for med­i­cal science, for my fam­ily, and for life it­self. ev­ery­thing mat­ters more to me now. now, seven months af­ter my trans­plant i feel like a new man. i have strength and en­ergy. in some ways i feel like i am in my 20s again! the past cou­ple of years of play­ing i was get­ting dizzy spells, se­vere cramps in my hand and fore­arm and played many shows in se­vere pain. it turns out that was a re­sult of my de­te­ri­o­rat­ing liver. that is gone now! i am able to play bet­ter than i have in years. i feel re­born. i can­not wait to get back out on the road again and do what i love to do for my fans. the fu­ture looks great!”
