Walter Trout Hoping For Another Chance As He Awaits Liver Transplant

(Classic Rock) Ailing bluesman Walter Trout has accepted he'll never be the same again if he survives his battle with liver failure. He remains under 24-hour care in hospital while he waits for an organ to become available to save his life. But he's insisted his album The Blues Came Callin' is released as planned on June 2, alongside his biography, Rescued From Reality: The Life And Times Of Walter Trout.

In an exclusive interview with The Blues Magazine, on sale now, he says: "I should have been dead when I was running around shooting heroin in the 70s with Jesse Ed Davis. I came so close to OD'ing on heroin and cocaine, many times. There were many times I'd take so much cocaine I was close to a heart attack.

"I feel like I was given a second chance back then. Then, with the drinking, a third chance. Just chance after chance. Now I gotta fight, and maybe I'll be given the next chance." more on this story
