Wow! I still listen to and love "Lucy, Lucy, Lucy", a Gilbert O'Sullivan sound-alike that captured my heart in 1974. One of my all-time favorites. Never met him but his song will always play for me. R.I.P., Alan.

The song :Lucy, Lucy, Lucy: was one of my all time favorites when we listened to COY @ CKRC in Minnesota in the 1970s. Godspeed to his family 9

Friends and acquaintances of Alan in the Winnipeg music community are saddened to hear of his passing. He was an especially talented member of a very unique group of musicians that indisputably made Winnipeg Canadas recognized heart of Garage Bands in the 60s and 70s that brought the world the likes of the Guess Who and Neil Young. We all played the same stages. It was a special time in music history and Alan truly embodied the fabulous and unique musical spirit that prevailed among the countless bands that rocked the school and Community Club stages for Winnipegs appreciative music thirsty teenagers most weekends. There was a competitive yet strong brotherly bond between all the bands gracing those stages as there was room for all of us to gig, and most of all, to have fun.
Please Google John Einerson , Winnipegs music scene laureate for more information on Alan and the incredible music scene that he was a part of.

RIP Alan....may you play your heart out for all in Heaven.

I was a close friend of Alan's in the late sixties and have wonderful memories of good times together and, of course, his music. He played with the Mongrels at that time. Alan was talented, intelligent, kind and thoughtful and had a great sense of humour. Jake Miller and Alan would have us laughing for hours! I lost touch with Alan for many years and saw him once in the early 80's when I lived in Toronto and then we connected in 2013 and 2014. I was so sad that he had to suffer so much through his illness. Now he is at peace. I am sending heartfelt condolences to Alan's family.

I am deeply saddened to learn of Alan's death. We travelled extensively in the 1980s to Asia and I have some of the best memories of our times together. I remember his humour, his graciousness, his sincerity and most of all his friendship.

My friendship with Allan went as far back as Tryones Men's wear when i used to get pants made for me by Pino. I always remembered Allan to be a kind, gentle and strong person. When i moved to Toronto in the late 80's and we connected again much later on. I remember being serinated by Allan on his piano, singing the songs he loved and I always have admired him for his courage and strength when i know he struggled with his illness. I will miss him, a kind and gentle man with a love for his children, his friends, family and the larger community.
