While waiting for Allan’s planned European Tour this spring, you can also listen to the Johansson brother’s (ex Malmsteen) album Heavy Machinery, where he’s a guest. Furthermore, we can also hear him on (keyboardist) Steve Hunt’s upcoming solo album. For those who want to study Allan’s technique closely, an instructional video is available. A couple of books have also been written, one called "The Uncommon Chord".
