    Yes John I do believe that it was their big crowd pleaser for awhile, perhaps because of the repetitive /building bass and piano lines--if memory serves--all of which really underlay the whole structure of the piece and acted as immediate identifiers of same in peoples' minds. However, that's just an uneducated guess on my part.
    Whatever floats your boat May your reach always exceed your grasp

    I just don't hear that much Hendrix in Trower's playing. Yes, he used a variant of a Jimi riff for Bridge of Sighs, but gee whiz doesn't everybody copy everybody else? I think the accusation that he 'copied' Hendrix is utterly unwarranted and it hurt his career.

    If he sounds like anybody, it's SRV. But Trower came first.
