Biography

Robin Trower (born March 9, 1945 in Catford, England) is a who achieved success with Procol Harum during the 1960’s, and then again as the leader of his own power trio.

Perhaps Trower’s most famous album is Bridge Of Sighs (1974). This album, along with his first (Twice Removed From Yesterday) and third (For Earth Below) solo albums, was produced by his former Procol Harum band mate, organist Matthew Fisher.

Those who favor electric guitarists who can play live what they record in the studio will be very impressed with the “Robin Trower Live” album - especially the cut “Daydream”. While often compared to Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower never received the publicity nor same volume of fans.

    Definitely underated as a guitarist. It will be a cold day in radio hell when you hear this gem played.

    The artists the radio stations don't play are generally the best out there simply because mainstream is commercial crap, the fact that Trower never had much airplay just proves his worth. It's impossible to play the Bridge of Sighs album and not be moved. See a doctor if you're not.....

    Trower is definitely in the most unacknowledged, underated category. Check out some of his work with Procol Harum. He is, without a doubt, a ROCK-N-ROLL HALL OF FAMER!

    Robin Trower may be as close as we'll ever get to having another Hendrix on this planet. He's proven it with his Bridge of Sighs album and many other cuts. Totally under-rated and I wish that would change. He deserves his accocolades at this point in his life. Too Rolling Stone ranks up with Hendrix's Who Knows.

    Yeah I agree, really unfortunate that Trower doesn't get a bit more credit these days but he seems to have been eclipsed by the other big names from the '60s-'70s.

    WTG MusicMagic77 Robin Trower is very original. Sounds somewhat like Hendrick's on some songs. He is known as the " Great White Hope". Meaning a lot of people think he is Jimi Hendrick in a White man's body. Only musician to really ever be compared to Hendrick so closely. My opinion, he is the Greatest blues player ever. Better then Jimi H, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Page, and even Stevie Ray.

    If you appreciate Robin's guitar tone and lead work then you may enjoy a free album by Stoner Metal band 'March The Desert' - http://marchthedesert.bandcamp.com/

    Why does Robin have so few listeners? He is part of the guitar godhead of Jimi Hendrix, Alvin Lee, Duane Allman, Jimmy Page and Leslie West!
