Walter has a liver!

Walter Trout finally has a liver. He’s in surgery right now. More to come.

[UPDATE 5/26/2014] The operation was successful. The surgeons performed to Walter’s music! No complications, and now it’s just a matter of healing. It looks good.

You are a hero

And in death
You saved
Many lives

A mere piece
Of metal

Each time

With music

This song of honor
And gratitude

In life

Never learn
But please know
What your service meant
In death
