When I said that he was washed up I wasn't commenting on the quality of the performance, I just meant that it was painfully obvious that he isn't a "name" any more and never will be again, and his niche audience is mostly just people who remember him from 35 years ago. The bar I saw him at sure wasn't The Fillmore, and there is a bigger theater only a few blocks away that's hosted lots of classic rock acts playing to bigger and more diverse audiences (and presumably giving weaker shows than Trower most of the time) so it's telling that he wasn't playing there. On the other hand we got to stand pretty close to the stage the whole time which wouldn't have happened in the other venue.
