Absolutely. He is one of my favorite guitarist of all time. He has incredible tone. I saw him live a few years ago and that show is definitely on my Top 10 concerts list.
I have a hazy memory of watching this as a 16 year old, as a badly rolled spliff came apart and burnt my levis.
Great band performance.
Always a favorite. Saw him at Madison Square Garden so many years ago. James Dewar was a huge presence in that band,great vocals
Heck heah. He's one of probably five reasons why I play guitar today.
And if you didn't know, he can also deliver the goods on the mic:
My roommate went to see Alvin Lee and Ten Years After and Procol Harum opened, back in the early 70’s. When he got home I asked him how Alvin Lee was, as he was a favorite of mine. I remember him saying that “he was OK, but man, that guitar player for Procol Harum was something else.” Yep.
True Legend of the game.

ever since i heard Bridge of Sighs , I was hooked
In small doses. I love his playing, I just can't listen to too much of it at once.
So true. Those first two albums, wow! Bridge of Sighs is a classic.

Robin Trower is one of my top five p!ayers ever! RT and a set of headphones = heaven.
I'd liked him ok when I was in my twenties and then someone turned me onto Kenny Burrell and I went down a different road
One of the funkiest, grooviest grooves in rock and roll:
A big fan.
Absolutely one of my favorites! The performance that introduced me to him was his performance on the King Biscuit Flower Hour!!! Absolutely killer performance and just amazing from start to finish. I’ve worn out that cd 3 times! Haha
I’ve always wondered why Trower doesn’t seem to excepted by the Beck, Page, Clapton, Winter type crowd. He’s so talented. He’s a British legend. And he still plays at a high standard. Same for Frampton. Both would have been great at one of the Crossroads concerts.
I remember seeing where Robert Fripp said he took some lessons from Trower. Trowers vibrato is one of the best. His use of drone notes and open chord structure is awesome.
I saw him at Winterland in 1975. He headlined, Tommy Bolin opened followed by Steve Marriott.
Lot of love for Robin Trower. Big influence.
I kept trying to get the last band I was in to do “Day of the Eagle”, but those lazy hippies couldn’t handle it.
Love Trower. I think Bridge Of Sighs may be the greatest album in history.
