A Blues-rock Benefit for Walter Trout at Shepherds Bush Empire.
The international Rock blues community comes together on Sunday the 4th of May to present a special benefit show in London for the blues-rock legend Walter Trout who is awaiting a liver transplant.
This special show features Roger Chapman, Otis Grand, Bernie Marsden, Ian Parker, Kim Simmons, Danny Bryant, Stevie Smith, Marcus Malone, Mitch Laddie, Lawrence Jones, and others to be announced along with The Flamingo Club All Stars House band featuring John O'Leary and Alan Glenn. Proceeds will go to towards the ailing icon's emergency liver transplant fund and his subsequent recuperation.
The goal of the evening is to pull together some great blues-rock musicians to help raise money and awareness of Walter Trout's current predicament. This year marked the 25th anniversary of his solo career, but he is currently fighting for his life. It is hoped that the event at Shepherds Bush will be well supported by musicians and fans alike as everyone in the music community come together to show their love for Walter and to help raise monies for himself and his Family.
Walter Trout recently confirmed the release of his new CD entitled 'The Blues Came Callin' which will be launched as planned on June 2 despite his continuing health issues.
