In My Own Words:
Music is my inspiration. When I am up it takes me higher. When I am down it comes down there with me and gives me solace and comfort.

Rock, The Blues, football and Arsenal FC. I love to read and challenge myself to broaden my mind. Never happier than at a top notch gig.

Marsden’s stature as a modern guitar maestro is indisputable and across the 13 tracks here Marsden’s full repertoire of skills are showcased… Read more

Rescued from Reality - Henry Yates and WALTER TROUT

So I have heard The Blues Came Callin' many times now and adore it. Have watched the accompanying DVD twice and was enraptured by it.

The cover style and format provide the clue to the content of the book, it is part autobiographical and part coffee table read, resulting in a book that can be read straight through or dipped in and out of. Needless to say I dove in and only emerged as I closed the book for the final time.

This is not a painstaking chronology of every facet of Walter… Read more
