Robin Trower

London-born guitar legend Robin Trower is best known amongst the wider record buying public as the guitarist in Procol Harum, but lovers of rock and blues will be more familiar with his later work as the front man for his eponymous power trio. Trower joined Procol Harum soon after their successful debut 'Whiter Shade of Pale' had faded from the charts. The band's founding member Gary Brooker was an old school friend of Trower and drafted him in to replace the band's existing guitarist. Trower sang and played guitar for the band until 1971 when he left to forge his own solo career. Trower's second album 'Bridge of Sighs' is perhaps his most famous work and featured James Dewar on bass and vocals and Reg Isidore on drums. 'Bridge of Sighs' was a hit with US rock audiences reaching number seven in the album charts and stayed in the chart for a total of 31 weeks earning a gold certification. The title track from the album as well as numbers such as 'Too Rolling Stoned', 'Day of the Eagle' and 'Little Bit of Sympathy' have endured amongst Trower's fans and still live on in the guitarist's live performances decades later. Three more gold albums followed on from 'Bridge of Sighs', the most commercially successful being the follow-up 'For Earth Below' which peaked at number five in the US and gave Trower his debut entry in the UK Charts when it reached number 31. The Robin Trower Band continued to put out records into the '80s, '90s and '00s, including 'Victims of the Fury', 'In the Line of Fire', 'Living Out of Time' and 'What Lies Beneath'. In 2017 the band recorded their 22nd album together titled 'Time and Emotion'.
