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....

Re: Allan Holdsworth
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.

Re: Allan Holdsworth
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).

Re: Allan Holdsworth
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
