I'm sure you have all heard of the very sad news of Allan Holdsworth's untimely death a few weeks ago, and thought about his legacy. As many have written, Allan was a major innovator and virtuoso guitarist. Personally it was that unique playing style that hit me hearing him on record for the first time in the mid 70's: it continues to do so. Then getting to gigs on those increasingly rare visits to his homeland, and seeing him live. I first met him in the mid 90's at the Old Vic Tavern in Nottingham in the mid 90's, an intended interview became an unrecorded hour long friendly exchange about  families - and then the night before some b*****d had stolen the band's equipment from the back of a van. Then the joy of seeing him at three separate gigs in one year, in the mid's naughties. In between, I got invited to contribute in a small way to '16 Men of Tain', accepted with great pride.


The show tonight is based on invited requests, some of my favourites, a couple of tribute pieces: in my attempt to demonstrate the virtuosity and the breadth of musics that Allan contributed. I believe one recording might get its premier airing on radio. 


The edited show will be issued over the coming weekend along with a bonus tribute recording made 10 days ago during the university vacation. If you have not received download notification of previous ALT2 Show recordings, please email me so you get included.
