His passing hit me hard yesterday.
I SO admired that guy.

I still remember how excited I was in the 90s when that new Carvin catalog came in the mail and there was Allan on the cover holding his new signature model. It was so exciting to see one of my favorite players teaming up with my favorite guitar makers.

So many of the greats falling lately. Emerson, Lake, Wetton and now Holdsworth. True pioneers of music.

Oh no! I just got into Holdsworth a few years ago, but I really love his style. RIP

I hadn't listened to much of his music, though I always thought his original Carvin model looked really cool (and unique).

I started listening to him back around 2011, when the new headless model was released (and I was super excited to see that hit the market). As I listened more, sometimes his music felt very "out there," and other times, passages just made a lot of sense.

Good player, and seemed like a humble guy. I hope his guitar models live on. We need less super strats, and more fusion instruments Razz

IMHO his solo on In The Dead of Night on the first U.K. album is one of the top 10 best guitar solos of all time.
