First Allan Holdsworth and now Chris Cornell. Two outstanding talents with little relation musically. We just came home off a USA tour where we actually played with Soundgarden. We’re on the same festival as them just a few days ago. I was never the biggest Soundgarden fan even if I really liked a few songs. However ”Euphoria morning” is a disc I practically wore out. Lovely album and highly influential. I went to the show for the tour which he cancelled last minute. I also liked Audioslave a lot. He will be sorely missed. I remember I went to see him play on the ”Carry on” tour. He was spot on. I loved the James Bond song he did but unfortunately he didn’t play a single song off ”Euphoria morning”. Now we’ll never hear him perform again. I guess I’m in shock. And many of with me I suppose. Chris Cornell R.I.P. And Allan Holdsworth was a genius guitar player whom I first encountered though the band UK. After some backtracking I found a record he’s on by a band called Igginbottom’s wrench which I love. And I have to mention Tempest from 1973. Their first album is absolutely fantastic. Particularly Fredrik and I were huge fans of his playing. I never even tried to approach that style as Allan were just lightyears ahead of me (and everyone else) even 50 years ago. But I certainly enjoyed his music a lot. Allan, you’ll be sorely missed.
