Walter Trout is back!
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!”
