Hey guys, thought this would lead to an epic debate on Strat Talk... Two legends which have both chosen the Stratocaster as their weapon of choice... One legend is a household name, the other is mostly known by guitarists. The thing I mostly want to debate is; how come commercial 80's Clapton is accepted and commercial 80's Trower is not? Is it because Journeyman is that much better than Trower's offerings the same era, or is it mostly due to Clapton having better name recognition and Clapton fans generally accepting mainstream music better than Trower fans? Hmmmm........ Let the debate begin! Here's a little known commercially produced Trower song from 1990 around the time of Journeyman. Few people know or care about this song. Is it because "stoner blues Trower" has no place in the 80's mainstream? This is one of my favorite obscure songs, too bad nobody knows about it.
