Last April 15th, Alla Holdsworth, one of the greates guitar players and music creators of all times passed away in California, USA. In this issue, I want to make a tribute to him who has been a source of inspiration in so many aspects to me. Someone may rise the doubt: "But you are a flamenco guitar player, and Holdsworth's style was completely different". And my aswer is that Allan's body of work is universal, it has no frontiers or cultural limits, he was one of a kind. To understand Allan's important role in modern music, I would like you to please read what Frank Gambale (another great guitar player) wrote about him the unfortunate day of his passing at his Facebook page because he really could convey the essence of Allan.

So I thank so much to Allan Holdworth. My deepest respect to him!
