Alan, sometimes I would sit behind the kit with your Devo stuff in my headphones and play a game where I tried to copy even just a quarter of what you were doing. I couldn't come close, of course. You were the human metronome. A "pattern monkey," I used to call you when describing your drumming enthusiastically to others. I always dreamed of meeting you, and always planned to write you a fan letter, and always hoped you would reunite with Devo and delight us all. Your untimely demise was a shock to so many of us, and the world is a little less creative, a little less compassionate, and a little less beautiful with your passing. I never met you, but I admired you deeply, and not only for your drumming. Everyone spoke of you as highly spiritual, humble, calm, peaceloving, positive, and incredibly creative. I am sorry your light has gone out early, and sorry I never got to meet you, but I am so grateful you existed. Rest in peace.
