Last month, Walter Trout released his latest concert album titled Alive in Amsterdam.

In recent years Walter Trout has endured a long battle with illness, having been diagnosed with life-threatening liver failure and Hepatitis C in 2013. Trout underwent surgery in May 2014 which resulted in a successful transplant.

Subsequently, Walter Trout went on to chronicle those times with his latest studio album, Battle Scars, which was released last year. Trout’s latest live recording Alive in Amsterdam captures his show recorded at the Royal Theatre Carré during his comeback tour in November 2015.

Walter Trout’s extensive touring schedule will see him return to the UK for a string of shows later this month, before coming back for a full headline tour in October.

National Rock Review recently caught up with the legendary blues man before he set off for Europe to talk about both his latest studio and live albums, his influence on the blues world, as well as writing and recording with The Supersonic Blues Machine.
