Nicknamed “The White Hendrix,” Robin Trower has been impressing crowds with his mind-blowing guitar skills for decades. He first earned notoriety as a member of rock band Procol Harum, who landed in the history books with their massive hit “A Whiter Shade Of Pale.” Both the track and Trower earned new fans years later when it was featured on the beloved video game Guitar Hero. In recent years, he’s released a stream of solo works and collaborations, including two albums with Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry.
