35. Procol Harum

The Progressive Rock question returns again with an act that could have had the biggest hit of the genre in “A Whiter Shade of Pale”. That song may not only have been Progressive Rock’s biggest hit; it may have been the first real one too.

241. Robin Trower

We believe that Robin Trower’s best chance for induction may come as a member of Procul Harum, but Trower really came into his own after he left that band and became a solo artist. Robin Trower was then allowed to continue his experiments with the guitar, and it has been said that Trower picked up where Jimi Hendrix left off. Whether or not he live up to that praise is open for debate, but his 70’s work was easily amongst the best of any axe men of the decade.
