TBT (Throw Back Trower)

It was in 1974 that I first hear the album, Bridge of Sighs, by Robin Trower.

Robin Trower isn’t exactly a household word. . . unless you take your guitar playing seriously.

Now 74, Trower is very introspective about his years of playing on the road.

There’s Magic in those Early Records

It is a sombre fact that, with every passing month, the heroes of the classic rock era are being steadily gathered in. Robin Trower, still on the road and in rude health at the age of 74, regards old age and the looming final curtain as a frontier to be navigated with increasing determination. 

The sands in the hourglass of our musical heroes are running out and one by one, they will be dying.  Until then, go out and see the old guys when they come through town.

James Dewar, the bassist-vocalist in this video is already gone.

A comment from this video:
My 5 year old daughter: What’s wrong with that mans face?
My 9 year old son: That’s what happens when the music comes out of your body and into the guitar.
Proud Dad moment.
