Walter Trout in the new issue of Gitarist!


About a month ago, I had the pleasure of talking to Blues legend Walter Trout on the phone. It turned out to be one of the most remarkable interviews I have ever had. Trout was on the brink of death no less than half a year ago due to hepatitis C. Since then, he had a liver transplant, his remarkably good new album ‘The Blues Came Callin” was released and during our chat, I found out he’s even starting to think about touring again. For more details on that conversation, I’d like to direct you to this month’s issue of Gitarist, which is available in stores as of today.

Furthermore, I spoke with Marcus Deml, once one of Germany’s most sought-after session guitarists, but these days, he focuses on his own Rock band Errorhead. Any fan of Bluesy Rock with a Funky touch is well advised to give that band a chance, you may even want to catch them on their forthcoming European tour. It’s worth it. Other notable articles from other authors include a ten page vintage special, a special on compressors, many lessons in various genres (including on Walter Trout’s style) and that beauty of a Duesenberg guitar on the cover. Personally, I’m a Les Paul man, but admit it: it’s quite hard to resist, isn’t it?

This is only the tip of the iceberg, but I can honestly say that as a guitar freak, I even would have checked this one out if I wasn’t writing for them.
