Robin Trower

Born: March 9, 1945
Southend, Essex, England

Trower helped form the Paramounts in 1962, and began gigging in clubs around London. One night, the Rolling Stones attended a gig and really dug the music, and introduced the Paramounts to their gig circuit. This was a major boost for the band. Eventually, the Paramounts were invited to open for the Stones, another career lifter. But, after a few singles and no real commercial success, Trower left the Paramounts in '66 to help form Procol Harem. Harem enjoyed moderate success, with such chart topping songs as A Whiter Shade of Pale. As time passed, however, Trower's bluesier style began to emerge, and in 1972 he left Procol Harem for a solo career. Through the late 70's and early 80's, Robin Trower produced approximately 1 album every year. Trower's latest release, 1999's Bridge of Sighs, is being supported with a world tour.
