Robin Trower Tribute Page
Robin Trower was one of the first of the 1970s guitar heroes, bending guitar strings to make them cry, whisper, and roar.


Robin Trower is indeed one of the great guitar soloists in rock and roll. In his heyday of the early- and mid-1970s, Trower garnered the same esteem and prestige as the great players of the time: Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and of course, Jimi Hendrix. Although he never reached the same pinnacle of fame as many of his peers, Trower still forged a respectable body of work and won the devotion of a sizable number of rock fans.

 


The thing that sets Robin apart is his unique style, and his guitar sound. 
To many, Trower's playing seems greatly influenced by Jimi Hendrix, but this is much too simplistic an analysis. Although he was inspired by Hendrix's approach, Trower's mix of blues, psychedelica, and sheer guitar power was largely his own creation.

In fact, Trower only saw Hendrix play live once, and he said he was more impressed with his passion for the music, than his particular style of playing.

The mainstay of Robin Trower's magic has always been his Fender Stratocaster. He is a dedicated Strat diehard who has rarely used another guitar.
Martin Barre of Jethro Tull introduced Robin to the Stratocaster in the late 60's.
The wide tonal sweep of the Strat allows Trower to range from a punchy, piercing bite, to a throaty growl all while maintaining his clear, precise sound.

Born on March 9, 1945 in London, England, Trower's career has spanned more than three decades. In his early playing days, from 1962 to 1966, he formed various bands in London. In 1967, he joined Procol Harum with whom he remained until 1972.

In 1973 Robin went solo releasing "Twice Removed From Yesterday" which stunned the worlds rock guitar fans.
Trower displayed his uncanny ability to channel Jimi Hendrix's bluesy/psychedelic guitar playing, all the while maintaining his own unique style.

A year later he released his masterpiece "Bridge Of Sighs" and cemented his guitar legend status for all time.

Trower released an average of one album per year throughout the rest of the 70s and into 80s, taking his place among the ranks of guitar superstars. To this day, he still makes CD's and retains an ardently loyal flock of fans.
Robin Trower remains one of the powerhouse guitar players of the golden age of hard rock.

    Rebuild The Twin Towers
    of the World Trade Center!

    We want the Twin Towers rebuilt!


    It is now May of 2005.  New York Governor Pataki's plan of building the new 
    Freedom Tower on the site of the 
    World Trade Center has been scrapped because the NYC Police Dept. has said it is UNSAFE.!

    Donald Trump has now proposed that we rebuild the towers one story higher than they were. Trump says:
    "If we build the Freedom Tower, it's like the terrorists won." 

    The Freedom Tower plan "looks like a junkyard!"

    "The last thing we need in New York is a skeleton representing the World Trade Center.  I think it's not an appropriate design."

    I believe we MUST rebuild the towers to show the world that we have won.

    CLICK HERE to learn more about this proposal, 
    and to sign the petition.

    Rebuild The Twin Towers!
