Post Walter Trout
Just picked up his newest album, released least year called Battle Scars. If your a fan of his, I'd highly recommend it. If you aren't familiar with Trout (who is a member of Canned Heat) but are a Blues fans, you should check it out...smokin' album.

These fools are too busy fapping themselves feverishly talking about the Pixies to be concerned with quality music.

I saw him live a bunch of times in the 2000 - 2010 time frame, I did not know he was still active . He was always so fantastic live , up tempo and a killer guitar player with a great band to back him up .

I wish the Pixies would implode and "Black Francis" would start going by "Frank Black" again and he would put the Catholics back together.

I have NO INTEREST in this Pixies bullshit.

Look, I "GET" WHY - guy has 3 of his own kids + 2 step-kids now" - but I HOPE like HELL that when those kids grow up, Charles says "fuck this Pixies bullshit, I'm so SICK of playing "Where is My Mind" and "Wave of Mutilation" & "Here Comes Your Man" every night and the new songs I tried to write? I now realize most were just me trying to be something I was 30 years prior and I need to be ME, TODAY. and The Catholics are much more "honest" and conducive to THAT.

I just always felt that The Catholics were some of the most honest albums/songs in music from 98 - 03. The "live to 2-track" recording method was fucking GENIUS. It was a "live performance" released as a studio album, essentially. Sure, they could "re-do" a take that went wrong, but, who cares? It still sounded SO fucking HONEST and so PURE.

For purely nostalgic and one of the greatest summers of my life reasons? "Black Letter Days" and Devil's Workshop" (both released same day - in Aug. 2002 - but I got 'em early in April 2002 as FB was selling early copies at his live shows). That summer? It was probably the BEST SUMMER OF MY FUCKING LIFE. And "Black Letter Days" and "Devils Workshop" were the soundtracks.

Beyond that? I just honestly love EVERYTHING he released under the name Frank Black more so than what he has released under the name Black Francis. ALL of the Pixies albums contained GREAT songs - but they ALL also contained pure SHIT. FB's solo albums? Yeah, there WAS some shit? But VERY VERY little IMO.

If I was in his shoes, it would be awfully hard to not keep going out there every night and playing the same ole shit that I wrote years ago while in college and slightly afterwards for the kind of money he's undoubtedly being guaranteed, especially in an era in which it's getting more and more difficult to make a good living via music.

But fuck it - I'm SELFISH - and I want the Catholics back, dammit!

Been listening to a lot of Trout lately and IMO he's as close to SRV as anyone active today in terms of the speed and passion of his soloing. Some of his stuff from the last couple of albums is just stunning.

Legend in the blues world for many years. Some very serious guitarist call him the best in the world, but on thing is for sure, the man rocks the blues!

This was a few years back. My good friend, neighbor, & former client (I quit booking bands full time 3 years ago) Craig Erickson in the Quad Cities jamming with Walter.

Love the blues, but I could just never get in to Trout. Not sure why, but it just never clicks. :?
