    Hello everyone here at CW. I have been wanting to post a tribute to the late great fusion guitarist Allan Holdsworth. (work has me very busy). He pasted away on April 15 2017 at the age of 70. He was a pioneer in fusion guitar work. I was lucky enough to see him live back in the mid 80's. His career spans 5 decades. He has played with many greats such as Soft Machine, Jean Luc Ponty, UK, Gong and many others. He also has a great catalog of solo material. He experimented with a new guitar in the 80's the 'Synth Axe'. He will surely missed in the music world.
    Thanx for listening!

    1st - Road Games(vinyl) 1983
    2nd - Metal Fatigue(vinyl) 1985
    3rd - U.K.(vinyl) 1978 - with bill Bruford & the late great John Wetton
    4th Gong 1977-78, Soft Machine 1975, All Night Wrong 2002 & Igginbottom's Wrench 1969 - all on CD.

    For those of you interested here is a link to a recent article.

      I'm an Alan Holdsworth fan too. He did the most creative chord progressions. No I IV V I for him. He was the mentor of Eddie Van Halen who would have thought.
      Great post.
