Robin Trower Interview

Robin Trower is one of the great guitar legends of all time. He began his career in the 1960s with the band The Paramounts and Procol Harum, whose enigmatic lyrics and evocative sound typified and exemplified for many an era of experimentation and idyllic hopes. Deeply inspired by the blues as well as his contemporaries, including rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix, Trower eventually struck out on his own. His solo records as Bridge of Sighs set a new standard for all guitarists in the early 70's and gave birth to such classics as "Bridge of Sighs", "Too Rolling Stoned", "Day of the Eagle" and "Little Bit of Sympathy". GUITAR TRAX hosted by Brian Tarquin featuring in- depth interviews with today’s hottest guitar legends and airs every Monday night from 10pm-12pm on WFIT 89.5FM on the Florida space coast and can be streamed on WFIT.org.
