For some, Musical legends, the best solution is to accept tributes and royalties for the resumption of old hits. However, there are artists who regularly remind audiences that they are invariably in masterful form. One of these musicians is Trower. His career, first band (including the best of the Procol Harum group), and eventually solo, is based on a number of excellent records.
I’ve always been the first to admit that Jimi was a very big influence on my early stuff.
Perhaps Trower’s most famous album is Bridge of Sighs (1974). This album, along with his first and third solo albums, was produced by his former Procol Harum bandmate, organist Matthew Fisher. Despite differences, Trower’s early power trio work was noted for Hendrixesque influences. Trower is an influential guitarist who has inspired other guitar legends such as Robert Fripp, who praised him for his bends and the quality of his sounds, and took lessons from him.
Since the time of the Robin Trower Band, he is an outstanding exponent of the blues, which confirms created for such a long period of music and its growing popularity among the younger generation. You can meet up with the term that Trower is a “European Hendrix” and perhaps it is not exaggerated.
Regarding raw emotion and sheer power, few guitarists today can equal Robin Trower. He literally compels his Fender Stratocaster to sing a timeless musical language – a blues-rock vocabulary replete with multiple-string bends enhanced by shimmering left-hand vibratos, sustain, effects, and controlled feedback.
