The Official Walter Trout Band Fan Club
The Official, International, Walter Trout Band Fan Club started during the band's European tour in Summer 1996. During the next 15 years over 700 fans from 16 countries from around the world joined the club. It has now closed
Sadly, after 15 years, 53 magazines, 1 exclusive Fan Club CD, 2 bass players, 4 keyboard players and 6 drummers, Walter and I have agreed that the Official International Walter Trout Band Fan Club will close. Walter and I had a long discussion and we agreed the Fan Club has run it's course.

The frequency of the Fan Club magazine, "Life In The Jungle", has reduced, which is due to less and less news being uniquely available to the Fan Club. This is partly due to changes in technology where news is now published on the Internet on Walter's web site, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, and partly due to Walter's and the band members "histories" being covered in every detail and there being only small and infrequent new topics to discuss and publish exclusively to Fan Club Members.
Active membership has also reduced. Over 700 fans joined, but active members who renew and pay a subscription was reducing.
Since 1996, I have thoroughly enjoyed running the Fan Club and meeting so many like minded fans in the UK, Continental Europe and America, many who have now become friends. Hopefully I will meet many more of you at a show sometime in the future.
I would like to thank Walter, his family, band members, crew, agents and promoters, and of course you, the fans, without whom the Fan Club would not have existed. Many members contributed to "Life In The Jungle" magazine over the years which has enlivened and enriched the Fan Club "family".
