Working Eric Woolfson

Dear Alan,
Thanks for all your contributions to music, and specifically thanks for the great work with APP. My son picked up on some of those records, and eventually turned me on to the whole catalog, on vinyl. It's been a fun run of holidays to get a copy of some APP that I hadn't heard before! Your music has brought us closer together, to which I'm deeply grateful. So much so, we took a motorcycle tour last summer from Portland Oregon to Reno to hear you guys play a terrific show. Really loved the guys that were sitting in that night!

My question to you is about your writing with Eric Woolfson. What was your working process like with him? Did he provide the text and you did all the music, or was it more collaborative, etc?

It was a big shock to hear about Eric's recent passing. We miss him.

Eric wrote 90% of the APP songs himself and 100% of the lyrics, but we did collaborate at writing stage occasionally - Breakdown, Can't Take It With You, Days Are Numbers are definitely genuine co-writes. Conversely I wrote 90% of the instrumentals single-handedly.

Thank you for your message on Eric's passing.
