R.I.P. Allan Holdsworth
The hits keep coming.

English jazz fusion guitarist Allan Holdsworth has passed away on the weekend, Allan's daughter Louise posted this on her Facebook page:

'It is with heavy hearts that we notify everyone of the passing of our beloved father. 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.

Louise, Sam, Emily and Rori'

Allan was 70 years old.
Our condolences to his family, friends and fans.
RIP Allan. Thank you for the music.

Allan also played in the first incarnation of the British prog/fusion band U.K. alongside bandmate John Wetton, who also passed away a few weeks ago.

Great guitarist. Terrible news. A bit underused on the UK album but in full flow on the Tempest debut. Both awesome albums!
