Mike Zito: New Video With Walter Trout

Mike Zito & Friends will release the album “Rock N Roll: A Tribute To Chuck Berry” on Friday 1st November via Ruf Records. The album features an impressive array of 21 guest guitarists, among them Joe Bonamassa, Walter Trout, Eric Gales, Robben Ford, Sonny Landreth, Luther Dickinson, Albert Castiglia, Anders Osborne and, significantly, Chuck’s grandson, Charles Berry III.

“This was a very special project for me,” Zito says. “I lived in Chuck’s hometown of St. Louis for 32 years, and I worked at a small musical instrument store where his drummer also happened to be employed. Chuck’s son would drop by on occasion as well. He was an icon, and rightfully so. I’ve been playing his songs since I was a kid. He was a tremendous influence on my career, and, of course, on many other musicians’ as well.”

The music video for the first single ‘Johnny B Goode’ featuring Walter Trout has just been released, check it out above.

Mike Zito about the video: “The video’s a throwback to early MTV kind of vibe. Getting to make this video with my hero, Walter Trout, is pretty much the coolest thing ever.”
