Last year, guitarist Walter Trout was hit with a life-threatening liver disease, which caused him to lose 100 pounds. "For five years, Walter, Provogue Records and I have worked toward making Walter's 25th year as a solo artist a special celebratory event," Marie Trout said.

Guitarist Walter Trout has a resume that reads like a who’s who of rock and blues legends. From his days in Canned Heat, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers to playing lead for John Lee Hooker, Big Mama Thornton and Bo Diddley Walter paid his dues and then some. I spoke with Walter to hear all about his new CD Blues For The Modern Daze, which was released April 24 via Mascot Music Productions.
