Twice Removed From Procol: Robin Trower

Steven Rosen, Los Angeles Free Press, November 1973

IT TAKES A LOT of gumption to leave a baseball team right after you’ve clinched the pennant, or to walk off the playing field dur-ing the middle of a Super Bowl game, or to quit a rock band as soon as you reach superstar status. Robin Trower made just such a move when he left Procol Harum after that group had completed a highly successful tour of the states and had just released a superb album dominated by the guitarist (Broken Barricades).
