His solo on SOS - Go West is amazing.When I studied at ACM we had to try and learn it, and Pete Callard was teaching us. Come the final run Pete was struggling to get it nailed… in walks Guthrie Govan, and Pete asks if he can do it (Guthrie was teaching the same thing to the parallel class). Guthrie exchanges a few words with Pete, then grabs a guitar and plays it as if it's the simplest things ever written. Jaw dropping.Needless to say none of us could get it!
Phenomenal guitarist taken away , way too early.such a shame.does anyone know how he contracted HIV? There's very little out there around this (not that it matters....)
My little anecdote , i was playing a session date a long time ago with someone who worked directly with alan.i said how much i admired him as a player and asked a couple of questions , she refused to eloborate shook her head and said "silly boy ,so sad " it felt really awkward so that was that ....love the sfx cd too , also i used to have a live level 42 video that was rather good ...
There was a touching pictorial tribute to alan on one of kates albums i think just a picture of a guitar on a chair ..... i cant find it, if anyone knows what im talking about please put it up ... its quite poignant ....
