“Jimi Hendrix may have catapulted the guitar into a different stratosphere, but Robin Trower can certainly lay claim to a body of work that deserves to be heard on another planet.”
“Now an established and prized part of the British blues-rock furniture, Trower plays with the freedom, poise, and prowess of a man who has No Worlds Left To Conquer.”
“At 77 years of age, Trower is a phenomenon that still carries the torch of that 70’s texture and heavenly tone. He continues to dazzle and evolve, but there’s never any let-up in quality control.”
“I think the main thing is that I love to play guitar,” he says, “so I pick up the guitar to play every day, and from those ideas will come. It keeps moving forward all the time, always new material, and once you’ve got new material, you want to get in the studio and put it down.”
