Wooooooooooooooo

First show in over 2 years..I'm psyched.

Dinner and a show with TanDan........good Dude !

He's got his Rory shirt on and I'm wearing my Duane Allman shirt for the first time. It's white, Ill probably get some kind of food on it...such a damn pig I am.
Well the Lunatic has finally been released from the Asylum.

If you all don't hear from Dan anymore...then you know I had to take him out of the picture.

I can't be trusted..

Got the bail money together in case you both need it.

Hope you have fun. Actually I know you will because Trower is always good.

Just got home. It's amazing how Robin looks so old now and can still play the hell out of that guitar. He was getting into the show himself. Some Dude who sang like a Van Morrison clone opened up, everyone was ready for Robin. If I had a bucket of rotten tomatoes I would have thrown them and ran the Van Clone off the stage.

The Band kicked of with "Twice removed from yesterday" and it was just fine. Later on did "Hannah from the first album also.

Davey sings good, there was no way they could find a James Dewar clone when he passed away. Davey has done great filling in those big shoes. But something inside me yearned to hear James Dewar's voice come thundering out of those amps. "Bridge of Sighs" was flawless, with extended solo. Robin was rocking, moving around while he was playing. The audience was into it from the get go....and Robin and the band never let up. I only wished they had Davey's vocals louder...he has to good of a voice to be overshadowed by the guitar.

Setlist(as with all of his shows on this tour)

1- Twice Removed from Yesterday
2- Shame the Devil (as good as ever)
3- For Earth below( It was damn good)
4- No Time
5- Fool and Me (Oh Yeah !!)
6-Roads to Freedom (Superb)
7- Islands (Instrumental)
8- Day of the Eagle (You know better it was good )
9- Bridge of Sighs (Awesome)
10-Rise up like the sun
11-Victims of the Fury (Glad they played it)
12-Gonna be more suspicious (Yep !!!)
13-Hannah ( I was getting off on it)
14-Little Bit of Sypmathy (You know it was kickin')
Encores
15-Too Rolling Stoned ( I was, I smoked two on the way up to the show !)
16-Go my Way (A nice suprise)
17-Another place, another time (A Davey classic)

The Band :

Robin Trower / Guitar
Davey Pattison/Vocals and Tamborine
Glenn Letsch/Bass
Pete Thompson/Drums

A solid 2 hour show..

Robin gets an A...he showed that he's not some "wash up" out to make a quick buck. He still has it, did not think he lost a step at all.

Best damn time I had in a while, also got to meet Goliath(David's) Brother Bert...a nice guy for real. TanDan gets BIG THANKS for turning me onto this show.

I almost felt human again........

great review,Kenny...sound's like you had as good a time as i did at the Trower show...In Memphis,we had to endure an opening act also..the Eric (?) Guardi Band....might be spelled wrong...but that's ok,'cause they were really lame....I really liked "Little" Davey's vocals,& felt he's about as close to sounding to Dewar as Robin could ever fiind..although no one will EVER sound as good as Dewar did w/Robin....I wish they had his vocals louder in the mix,too...seem's like it's always like that,as I have a boot or two from this tour...& they are the same way.....

Great time in Atlanta last night.

Kenny and I ate at the Yacht Harbor and then somehow managed to get second or third place in line, raced up to the balcony rail where the view was unobstructed. Ran into Byard in the lobby and he joined us. The place was completely sold out and the band rocked! Trower played as if he was 25. I know more than a few became converts last night. As has been already mentioned, this wasn't a dinosaur tribute show. Everybody played as if their life depended on it. The drummer, Pete Thompson, was banging the kit as if he was trying to pound it all the way to China. Glenn Letsch (formerly of Gamma) laid down a fantastic bass line.

Kenny left after the show while I talked with Byard, who was in line to get some items signed. I shook Robins hand and, you know me, asked him about Rory. Robin signed everything presented, allowed countless photos to be taken and was more than gracious.

For anybody interested, I just offered up two great sounding shows in the vine forum that Kenny gave me ( Thanks Kenny! ). One has James Dewar and the other Davey Pattison. Both shows have excellent sound and vocals. I didn't see any tapers anywhere.

Try to catch this show if it hits your neck of the woods. They don't make them like Robin anymore. I think the tour is called 'The First Farwell Tour'

i was there also........................the review i have to say is very accurate.
the band was very tight and robin is in his sixties but he is no "has been".
i took my 26 year old nephew and a friend of mine that had never seen
trower play live but they had watched the dvd of "living out of time.
i had educated them on robin's background and place in rock and roll history.
but they were mesmerised by the music and even though i'm a longtime fan
so was i . a friend of mine at work could not make the atlanta show but
traveled to greenville,south carloina on the 6th to catch his next show.
so i'll talk to him later today and find out just how blown away he was.
he had not seen him since maybe 78 or so.

I was at the Greenville show last night, and it was another trimuph for Robin. I've been a convert since the mid-70's, seeing him first in '76 (I think ) I've been a big fan ever since, so it's impossible for me to be impartial.

I've got a bunch of pictures of last night's show, which I have to sort through. I'll start a separate thread later to display those. Thankfully I was able to use my best camera gear, so I've got some pretty good shots of Robin, even though the lighting was quite low and didn't give me much to work with.

I took a buddy who's never seen him before, and he was shaking his head all night, not believing what he was hearing. At one point he leaned over and said "nobody plays like this - nobody!"

I can't think for anyone who has a tone that is so thick, and can both bite and sooth depending upon the nature of the song.

Besides his playing, maybe the coolest thing is how much time he spends with the fans. Just like the Atlanta show, there was a long line last night and he greeted everyone warmly. The mutual respect and love clearly goes both ways. How many artists can you think of who do this so graciously?

There are very few left who first charted the waters and defined what it was to be a "guitar god". Robin is certainly in that group, and better yet continues to prove he deserves the title. Sunday is his 63rd birthday, and those seeing him at the Birchmere will probably be in for a treat. Just because we're getting over the hill doesn't mean we need to hit the brakes. Long live Robin!!

Two weeks until I see Trower. Good to hear all the good reviews. He's about as washed up as Mr. Betts, which is to say not at all.
