Starbucks Customers Inspire Walter Trout Song

(Classic Rock) Walter Trout was inspired to write a song on a napkin in a Starbucks' branch when he realised no one in the room was talking to each other.

And the bluesman says it's the perfect illustration of his theory that communication technology actually makes it more difficult for people to express themselves.

Trout sketched the idea for the song Lonely on his 21st album Blues in the Modern Daze during a coffee stop with his band. "I was standing there waiting and there people standing beside me, and they're yelling in my ear. I thought they were all mentally ill, talking to themselves, before I realised they were all talking on phone implanted in their ears," He tells Classic Rock Revisited. "I looked around nobody else in the place was talking. They were all staring at computers. No one was talking to person next to them."
