From the Facebook group The Canterbury Scene, originally posted by Aymeric Leroy:

More sad news... "It is with heavy hearts that we notify everyone of the passing our beloved father Allan Holdsworth. We would appreciate privacy and time while we grieve the loss of our dad, grandad, friend and musical genius. We will update close friends and family when service arrangements have been made and will notify the public of an open memorial service, which all would be welcome. We are undeniably still in shock with his unexpected death and cannot begin to put into words the overwhelming sadness we are experiencing. He is missed tremendously.

Much Love,
Louise Holdsworth, Emily Holdsworth, Sam Holdsworth & Rori"


One of my personal favorite guitarists of all time, a true innovator of fusion guitar. Cry

Dategories strain, crack and sometimes break, under their burden - step out of the space provided.

Itís this thing called nuclear weapons.
And other things.
Like lots of things are done with uranium.
Including some bad things.
But nobody talks about that."

I saw him once in a very small club in Eureka California more than 30 years ago.  The best guitar player I have ever seen and I have seen a lot.  A terrible loss to the world of music.  Condolences to his family and friends.

Very sorry to hear of this news. Bundles is one of the top albums ever made, and he was a big reason why! RIP.

oh that is terrible news... didn't hear of anything health wise leading up to this. Raff mentioned to me hearing some word of him perhaps suffering from depression.  RIP to one of the true greats.
