It's Alan, not Allen.

RIP, I thought he was a much better fit than Bill Bruford, who he replaced when Bruford went off to King Crimson. Played with John Lennon before that (the great "Instant Karma" single, and the 'Live Peace in Toronto' and 'Imagine' albums.

He also drummed on Harrison's "All Things Must Pass album", including the "My Sweet Lord" single.  Ringo played tambourine on that track, according to White.

He was a solid drummer for Yes, not a virtuoso like Bill Bruford.  But he fit their music well, I think.

Here's a version of Starship Trooper from their Symphonic tour in 2001.
