That’s one reason why it’s important to be tuned in to the contemporary music scene. But every so often a legend from the golden era traipses through our local beat. In fact, one is journeying 1,100 miles to give a South Bay audience a lesson in guitar power. Robin Trower performs on Sunday at Brixton in Redondo Beach.
