RIP Allan Holdsworth

RIP Allan.
Such an amazing and innovative player! I have to say he influenced me as much as Vai, PG, Satch, Jeff Beck, Howe, or many others. Allan was at the root of an amazing tree, influencing so many far and wide. Rest in peace good sir!

Re: RIP Allan Holdsworth

That is very sad news - he was an incredible player and innovator. I like how you put it Mike " the root of an amazing tree" - the Holdsworth influence trickled down through so many great players like Satch, Vai, etc. and his innovative legato style can be heard in so many of the great modern players that we love. RIP Allan!
