Active since the 1970s, Holdsworth played in bands like Yes, Soft Machine and Tempest. His guitar skills influenced musicians like Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Joe Petrucci, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Frank Zappa.
His most recent album recorded by the guitarist, 'Tales from the Vault', has not yet been released.
