This page is dedicated to Cat Stevens'
right hand man, Alun Davies. Many people,
including myself, have wondered what has happened
to Alun. It is a natural reaction for a Cat
Stevens fan to be a Alun Davies fan as well.
So it only seems natural to have a Alun Davies'
page on a Cat Stevens website. After all,
who was the first person most fans saw up
on stage at a Cat Stevens concert? Not Cat
Stevens..... it was almost always Alun. Alun
was usually seen on stage way before
the concerts ever started, tuning up his and
Cat's guitars, checking the microphones and
making sure everything sounded correct. So
this page is dedicated to the man who helped
give Cat Stevens his sound.... And Alun, if
you ever read this page ....THANK
