Allan Holdsworth
 
What a sad news I knew minutes ago ... so sad about this phenomenal musician,,, No words needed.
UUf friends. What a sad news !

Dear Friends in Music

Today is a very sad day for me.

R.I.P. Allan Holdsworth (August 6, 1946 - April 16, 2017).

There is no greater measure of a life well lived than the amount of people he had impacted, and by that measure the artist Allan Holdsworth lived a very good life. This man took a plank of wood, a few strings, and some wires and transformed people's lives in a way that few others have. The ultimate genius of the rarest kind. One of THE greatest musicians ever lived. So much history with Allan between 2001-2016.

You will be missed forever, Allan - Yo Ol' Geezer, i love You.
Rest In Peace.

​​​​​​​My deepest condolences go to his daughters Emily and Louise, his son Sam, and his granddaughter Rori, and everybody else who loved this truly unique man.

All right then, then....

Shouldn't the thread title be RIP Allan Holdsworth if you knew he had passed away? ;)

Anyway, yes sad news indeed. Great guitar player to say the least and one of the most important musicians in the prog/fusion genre. RIP Allan.

Same here. Once solo with his backing band and once with UK. Both times were at Nearfest.

You know what folks. I stand corrected. I keep posting in various places(including here)that I saw Allan with UK at Nearfest. I just looked it up though and it appears he was not with the reunited version of the band. So that means I only saw him once(which is still better than nothing).

Wow...Very Very Sad news indeed.
the first time I heard him, was on the first UK lp, and
having never heard of him, it was a review of said release
in guitar player that sold me. I got the cd, and was dumbfounded.
He became my favorite guitarist and I , too was lucky enough
to have seen him, his band, years ago , in a small intimate setting
in hollywood, Over the Palace theater, they had a small venue.
SRO, and I couldn't beliieve what this man did.
Amazing man. RIP AH, you blew many musicians minds
away.
