Blues legend Walter Trout celebrates the release of his new album ‘We’re All In This Together’ with a show at Under The Bridge on 10 and 11 October.
“I’m 66 years old,” he says, “but I feel like I’m in the best years of my life right now. I feel better than I have in years physically. I have more energy. I have a whole different appreciation of being alive, of the world, of my family, of my career.
“I want life to be exciting and celebratory. I want to dig in. I want to grab life by the balls and not let go, y’know…?”
The follow-up to 2016’s ‘Battle Scars’ captures that excitement, with Trout recruiting 14 A-list guest musicians including Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, John Mayall, Robben Ford, Warren Haynes, Sonny Landreth, and Randy Bachman.
“Now was the right time for this record,” he says. “’Battle Scars’ was such an intense piece of work, written with tears coming down my face. I needed a break from that, to do something fun and light-hearted. This album was joyous for me.”
