    I am very sorry. Alan is in my memory from seeing him on this forum. He really stood out to me. Fond memories of him, always was happy to see his avatar. Loved reading what he had to say. RIP Alan.

    Thanks for that, JoS. I've made a donation to Macmillan in Alan's memory

    Yes, I only knew him from here and then FB and Instagram. Bravado did some acoustic gigs on Instagram. Lovely stuff. He was always so upbeat, despite the long fight. I’ve missed his resounding “Welcome to the Weekend” on the “What are you listening to” ever since the Miscellany shut down. And, his just plain fun conversation

    He was battling cancer and he did indeed put up a good fight. I found this article yesterday about him and his band who had recently performed a charity gig for him. I too only knew him within this realm, but I always enjoyed our chats and reading his posts and was hoping that those would have continued. It's all so very sad, he will be deeply missed.

    Very sad to learn of Alan's passing. Just last week I was looking at those of us who have wandered back and was hoping we'd hear from him again. He will be missed.

    I can't remember which was the exactly pathology he has struggled against but I do remember he went on a delicate surgery once.

    Yeah, very fucking sad news on this fucking Monday. You know when Neil Peart passed away or when Gene Wolfe passed away no matter how much I love their works and how much their words mean for me in terms of getting me sane it is never the same thing as losing a good pal. RIP Alan, a great musician and music connoisseur and always a positive and polite person.

    This is very sad news! Alan will be deeply missed. He always had a great sense of humor and introduced me to music that has broadened my horizons. I raise a glass of scotch in your honor...rest in peace.
