We had really bad news yesterday. Here is what some of the masters of guitar think about Allan Holdsworth (RIP).

Steve Vai
Allan Holdsworth’s unique contribution to the electric guitar is unquantifiable. I remember him saying to me once that his goal was to create a catalog of music that was undiluted. Well, that he did…. Dear Allan, you were extraordinary and from all of us who you've touched so deeply with your brilliance, we are grateful. Rest in deep peace my friend.

Joe Satriani
R.I.P. Allan Holdsworth. You remain an enormous inspiration to me. Your beautiful music will live on forever.

Alex Skolnick
Huge loss, true genius. His music went over heads at times (mine 2 admittedly) but brilliant uncompromising & impactful RIP#AllanHoldsworth

Richie Kotzen
Devastated to hear of the passing of a legend! RIP Allan Holdsworth

Steve Lukather
I cant believe it!
Allan Holdsworth, legendary guitarist of our generation !
He changed the game + was the sweetest guy ever...

John Petrucci
I'm very saddened to hear about the death of Allan Holdsworth today. He was a huge influence on my playing as well an incredible artist and innovator who will be missed greatly.

May he rest in peace.

I have tried for years to get into his stuff, but it never clicked to me. But I bet you it will be like always and one day I will probably hear one of his pieces and with will click.

It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.
