Alan Rogan, guitar technician and longtime friend of Pete Townshend has passed away, The Who announced on their website.
“It is with great sadness that we announce that Alan Rogan, Pete Townshend’s guitar technician and close friend for more than 40 years has passed away. Alan was an essential and hugely respected member of the Who crew for many years and will be sorely missed,” the official statement reads.
“My guitar tech, friend, saviour and good buddy Alan Rogan,” Townshend added on Instagram. “R.I.P. He has so many friends who will miss him, and his lovely family have been wonderful.”
According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Rogan might have been ill for a few months. Back in May, the staff of Norman’s Rare Guitars in Los Angeles made a get-well video for Rogan, saying that “the greatest tech of all time” was “a little under the weather.”
The news comes just two days before the band is set to perform a one-off homecoming show on Saturday at Wembley Stadium in London.
