I think I was about 12 when I saw a poster of Vai and the shocking pink jem. Greatest thing I`d ever seen, before girls. Knew I could never be that cool ...

That's 1987 which is about right. All of a sudden all the guitarists who used Jacksons and Charvels and ESPs started using Ibanez such as Vai, Satch Paul Gilbert and Vinnie Moore. It was Holdsworth who first used an Ibanez super strat though back in 1985 when he dropped his own Charvels.

Is Allan Holdsworth one of those guitarists I should investigate? EVH certainly mentioned him in interviews, back when he gave a ____.

Maybe there's a middle ground between having heard nothing at all and "buy all his solo albums ASAP". Appreciate the recommendation!

Listened to a few excerpts, and his playing really reminds me of Vai 's early solo work and his Zappa era, and Steve Morse's Dixie Dregs stuff, so that must mean AH influenced them, chronologically speaking. I can live with that. But you didn't tell me he was dead! One day I'll like a musician or band that might actually make another record...
