Rescued From Reality: The Life And Times Of Walter Trout is the result of 30-plus hours of interviews with American blues guitarist, singer and songwriter Walter Trout by respected British music journalist Henry Yates.
For the first time ever, Trout gives his own frank, unflinching and dazzlingly funny account of his chequered life and times. It's all here: the hits, misses, homelessness, death threats, deals-gone-bad, bust-ups and comedowns. Even when the spotlight turns onto darker subjects, such as the desperate trauma of his childhood, the demeaning depths of his addictions and the reality of his recent health issues, Trout speaks out with an honesty that will leave his fans with a deeper appreciation of the man and his art.
This biography combines the bandleader’s testimony with over 100 colour and black and white photographs, many never-before-seen from his personal archive. Equal parts thriller, romance, suspense and horror, Rescued From Reality is sure to be a page-turner for fans of the extraordinary musician.
