Allan Holdsworth: talkin about speed merchant rock guitarists in 1987

from Guitarist, November 1987

What do you think of the new wave of speed merchant, rock guitarists?

Well it's funny. It's great! Some of them are like "chops up the ying yang" but there's only a few guys that I like and they're generally not those guys because there's something about the music that I don't particularly like. It's harmonically totally uninventive and if one guy is rabbiting around at a million miles an hour on one chord, it doesn't exactly turn me on. But, for example, I love Scott Henderson's playing and I really like Eric Johnson. To me he's the only guy in the rock vein who's come around who makes a different sound and plays in a different way. Most of them are slightly derivative of Eddie and are into the two handed thing. But there are a few guys who don't use that technique at all, and that's great.

Tony MacAlpine: latest update

Hello it's Mike, Tony's manager, checking in with some good news on Tony's birthday!
The operation yesterday lasted over 6 hours, and was a success. Doctors removed the tumor and it does not appear to have spread to other organs. It will be a few days before we know if Tony will require additional chemotherapy, or if he gets a clean bill of health, so we are of course hoping for the latter.
Thank you so much for all the messages of love and support that you have sent Tony. All that positive energy made a huge difference, and continues to do so during what has been a difficult time for Tony and his wife, who has also been battling breast cancer since May.
We will have more news in the coming days, and I expect that Tony will check in with a message for you all soon.
