Happy Birthday in Heaven to Allan Holdsworth (August 6, 1946 - April 15, 2017)

Happy Birthday in Heaven to my dear friend for many years, Allan Holdsworth, a genuine genius from the Sphere Of Innocence, one of the greatest musicians ever.

There is no greater measure of a life well lived than the amount of people he had impacted, and by that measure the artist Allan Holdsworth lived a very good life. This man took a plank of wood, a few strings, and some wires and transformed people's lives in a way that few others have.
The ultimate genius of the rarest kind. Immensily missed....

The legendary Tony Levin, wrote this beautiful poem for Allan Holdsworth - Crack In The Sky. The poem, published in Tony's poetry book "Fragile As A Song", is regularly performed by Tony's band Stick Men, featuring Pat Mastelotto and Markus Reuter.

Love from
Leonardo Pavkovic 'Nardini'
