Walter Trout Recalls Telling Springsteen He Wasn't Very Good: Walter Trout News

(Classic Rock) Walter Trout has recalled the moment he called out Bruce Springsteen about his guitar playing. Trout grew up in Ocean City and was part of the Jersey Shore scene when he was a budding musician. He played in a band Wilmont Mews who often shared gigs with Springsteen's early band Steel Mill.

He tells Press Of Atlantic City: "I remember talking to him and hanging out with him when he was the lead guitar player. I didn't think he was very good.

"I remember telling him, 'Man, you guys need another guitar player.' He would say to me, 'Well, I'm starting to write songs,' and I would say, 'I hope your songs are good, because your guitar playing is not really happening.' I guess he showed me, didn't he?" Read more here.
