Just wondering who you would prefer to listen to. I would take Robin Trower in a heartbeat! I really enjoy SRV but, to me Robin is the next thing to Jimi.

Who does he better Hendrix? Visually SRV no comparison. Aurally Robin Trower can dial up an identical tone using essentially the same effects. SRV offered a little more diverse sonic pallette apeing the 3 Kings (most notably Albert) also some nice jazz stuff as well. I love Trower but all you're going to get is Hendrix. Casting my vote for SRV, but do love some Trower especially "Daydream."

Mr Stevie Ray Vaughan.....I was lucky enough to see him live at least 10 times before he died and he always pulled something out of his hat that you never heard him do before. He was amazing live and is truly missed to this day.

Love them both, but gotta go with SRV. Great touch, feel and tone, and the guy has a great blues vioce as well.

I appreciate and respect what SRV did, but he doesn't really click with me.

x three


I don't really hear the "all you get is Hendrix" thing with Trower. Yes, he uses some of the same effects, but to my ear, in a totally different way.

With SRV, I think the number of direct Hendrix covers (what? three or four on record?) didn't do him any favors. Yes, he did them justice, but I just kind of wish he'd just stuck to doing his own thing rather than rehashing Hendrix's signature tunes.

Probably have a differing opinion had I seen EITHER gentleman live in their prime.

I like both.

Listen more to Robin Lately.

But I have seen him more recently and he has new material. SRV is gone. RIP
I tend to listen to new material more than revisiting old stuff. But I have
a copy of "Live Alive" on Cassette that gets played a bit.

the only time I saw SRV he was drunk and stoned on coke, out of his mind and the
music suffered. But the stuff he recorded after he got sober is incredible.

Trower has always been on top of his game when I have seen him play live.

If forced to choose It would be Robin. no disrespect intended to SRV.

There is no way for me to pick one over the other right now. I would say that my mood of what style I want to hear will determine who I pick. I hate to even try and put one ahead of the other because both are so fantastic.

I never saw Stevie or have listened to any of his audience recordings from successive nights, but I will say that with Robin, atleast these days, you get the same show with the same solos night after night. It is a bit more rehearsed sounding when you go to back-to-back shows or listen to his shows from successive nights. I love every minute of it even if it is the same instrumental segments and solos repeated. The guy has perfected what he does, so I'm not complaining at all. But if I was in the mood for something more improvational I would listen to Stevie in that case. Just depends.

Hard to answer straight out because for studio albums I prefer some trower for sure. But live, I have seen some smoking and touching SRV shows. The night of his Dad's funeral was off the charts.

Both are awesome but for guitar in concert, SRV gets my sentimental vote for that show alone. Plus many others that were awesome also.

For stealing riffs on guitar, I give it to Trower. I stole every minute of the Bridge Of Sighs album.
