EDM community bids a sad farewell to David Guetta production manager Alan Green
The dance community has lost another one of its beloved figures. On September 20th it was reported that Alan Green, former production manager for Cream and current manager of David Guetta, had passed away peacefully in his sleep. While the exact cause of death remains unknown, it’s theorized that the manager’s ongoing battle with nocturnal epilepsy had been a contributing factor.
Green was a highly respected figure in electronic music; past career successes aside from managing EDM superstar Guetta included seven years of running production for Liverpool’s infamous Cream club, touring with Sasha and Carl Cox, and providing his valuable services to Creamfields and The Warehouse project. He was also an outspoken activist for epilepsy, which he had been dealing with for over 10 years and had recently held an interview with The Daily Record to build awareness of the disease and to break stigmas associated with it.
His loss is already being strongly felt throughout the community; following a somber tweet from David Guetta thanking him for all his work, an outpouring of remembrance occurred throughout all social media outlets as people from all facets of the electronic music industry expressed their condolences. DJ Sneak’s Facebook post reflected a sentiment felt widely by those affected over the loss: “Always helpful in any situation, he spent time making sure people’s travels and life were good to continue on any tour.”
Green is survived by his wife Lainie and his nine year-old son Ewan. Our condolences go out to his family.
