    RT is still making good, guitar-centric blues-rock albums the way he wants to make them. The word “icon” gets thrown around a lot but it fits here. Hope it’s a great show.

    Hi BP !!
    I’m Robin Trower fan El Supremo !!
    Have followed his career as long as I’ve been listening to music!!
    Friends and in regular contact with several dozen folks who are directly involved …… ( would just be name dropping to list , let’s just say Wee Lisa , S. Shail, The Alchemist and Eric K. are all close pals )
    I’ve spent years sussing and cataloging lyrics ( ALL of them )
    Playing guitar and bass covering dozens of his songs …
    Seen him in concert 14 times……
    Fashioned my tone after him…

    So , yep, I’m hep!!!!

    Jon, someone asked previously which amps he was using these days.
    Last video I saw he was saying that he was going to give a Bluesbreaker(s) a run.
    What did you see on stage?

A 1987 on a 1960AX , A 2203 on a JCM800 1960 and Another 1987 on an 800 1960 …… Laurie had him mic’d with a couple 57s located close edge on the upper left , both on the 1987 rigs …… Richard was through Ampeg Class D 1000s on Two Ashdown 8/10s ……
