Alan White Passed Away

Sgt. Pepper

Recommended Posts

Just saw Alan White died. He is mostly known for playing with Yes, replacing Bill Bruford after he left, but also played with John Lennon, George Harrison and Joe Cocker.

Although I did like Bruford's style better I never thought Mr. White was a bad drummer.  The article linked didn't inform of the cause of death.  It's sad and at what I too feel is too young of an age.  And so soon after Ray Liotta it makes me apprehensive as to who #3 will be.  [scared]

Rest In Peace, Allan

Unforgettable licks on "Instant Karma".

Absolutely.  I heard that track again recently and the drumming is even better than I remembered.

He was a superb musician; when asked to join Yes (he had to choose between Yes, Jethro Tull and America all of whom asked him to join their bands in the same week) he had precisely 3 days to learn the set.
