Walter Trout discusses his "overwhelming" new UK tour

Blues-rock guitar hero Walter Trout continues his spectacular convalescence with tour dates in the UK and Europe.

How did it feel to be kept off the stage by illness?

That was really terrible. At night in the hospital, when I couldn’t sleep, I would take my little smartphone and go on YouTube and I’d watch videos of myself performing and think: “Who is that guy? That’s not me. There’s no way I could do that.” To think I might ever be able to do that again was more than I could even comprehend. I can’t begin to tell you how overwhelming and astounding it is to be back.
