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!
