Robin Trower was 74 years old when he released his album Coming Closer To The Day
and set off on yet another tour. Lyrically, much of the album deals with mortality, as he was now much closer than the end of his life than to the beginning. In "Lonesome Road," he sings:Look out lonesome road
I may have to quit you someday soon
"That's about me thinking about how much longer I can go on touring," Trower said in a Songfacts interview
. "And it's also about my career and my life, as well - what's gone on before."
