It’s hard to express how important Allan Holdsworth was to music. He invented an entire style out of nowhere, sticking to his musical guns throughout a career that garnered huge critical acclaim but scant commercial reward. Revered by musicians of all stripes who marvelled at the beauty of his playing and compositions, he will be sorely missed. Please see next month’s issue for our full tribute to this great musician.
