Anyone a fan? I just discovered his music, interestingly enough after Holdsworth and Buckethead. Claims have been made that he had the mind of a genius and could remember whole books after reading them once. Also, that he is the greatest and fastest guitarist of all time. Paul Gilbert has been quoted saying that he is the most terrifying player of all time in terms of skill and speed. He also put out an extensive lesson video showcasing his speed. He died at the age of 40. Buckethead calls him the greatest of all time. And looked up to him. Seems he loved Eric Johnson and Hendrix, often covering them.
