    good stuff dan. keep up the good work. next time i think you should hit him with the tough questions.. like if he uses a rubber ducky in the bathtub or not !!

    I’ve played Guitar most of my life. RT is one of the best if not the best. Watch some of the videos like “Sweet Angel” with a three piece and listen to that sound. Other than perhaps the Rev Billy Gibbons and ZZ Top who can do that? I’ll tell you.. Nobody. Let me know when you get back to the Birchmere and hopefully I’ll be in town. Missed it twice.

    Dan,
    I stumbled on your website by pure coincidence but was gripped by your Robin Trower interview and the music you played. In the 1970’s (I am now over 60 y/o) I saw Robin Trower play live at the King’s Head in Fulham Road, London. (The King’s head is a pub).
    It was a remarkable experience and I remember it to this day. Robin is a much under rated musician.

    Well done Dan. You handled the interview with the proper respect that a player like Robin deserves. I am a huge fan of Trower. Every time he comes to the Los Angles I see everyone of his shows. I have seen him dozens of times over the years and he never fails to amaze me. Thanks..and yes I have the movie Good Humor Man…LOL. Peace.Dave

      Thanks for your kind feedback, Dave!

      You sound like a first class fan.

      Trower basically taught me how guitar should be played.

      So, respect always!

    Robin was heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix who remains the king pin in heavy rock guitar. Joe Satriani, Stevie Ray Vaughen and Robin were along with Stevie Vie are all influenced by JH.
