I've followed Robin since 1967 when he was with Procol Harum. He has always had a unique sound, played Gibson guitars, but when he heard Hendrix, he switched to a Fender Stratocaster and a Univibe pedal and the rest is history. He doesn't sound a bit like Hendrix, but he rocks in his own unique way.

I saw him in concert in the mid 90's in a club in Eugene, Oregon. I was wearing a Joe Satriani shirt. Robin saw my shirt and flicked his pick at me. Sadly the pick hit me in the chest and flew behind me. Some girl got it. I wish I had that pick.

His most well known song is Bridge of sighs, but he has a ton of tasty material.

Pat Metheny's 1976 album Bright Size Life had a great trio. Pat Metheny on guitar, Jaco Pastorius on bass and Bob Moses on drums. The album is a classic and the synergy is unmatched.

I remember the first time I heard "Summertime Blues" by Blue Cheer. I had never heard such a raw distorted sound in my life! I can picture the trio with their 6 Marshall stacks, 3 for guitar and 3 for bass. And Leigh Stevens solo sound with incredible vibrato. They were not sophisticated by any means. Later on I found out they were from Spokane, Washington.


The second album was not as loud, but had some great material on it!



I wonder if they're still around, and if so, are they all deaf?
