Just read that Alvin passed away unexpectedly this morning in Spain, following routine surgery. A truly great guitarist and musician.

RIP.

I apologize for messing up on a sad thread. I sang once with Alvin in Cleethorpes and years later met him when Ten Years After were just starting. Always friendly and a fine player.
RIP

I always liked "Hear Me Calling" - a very dynamic and original 16 bar rocker. RIP.

Sad news. I saw TYA at an early Hyde Park free concert, with Family, Eclection, Fleetwood Mac, Stefan Grossman, Peter Sarstedt, Fairport Convention, and the perennial Roy Harper.

And the sun shone....

A huge influence on alot of people here in the States. Tremendous flair and showmanship. He did an album w/Mylon LeFevre. It has been completely overlooked. Sad as it's a great work. And his 'I'd Love To Change The World' was required learning for an entire generation of acoustic musicians.

RIP, Alvin and thank you.

"I'm Going Home" by Alvin Lee was the highpoint of Woodstock.

I am truly saddened. Time was, back in the late '60s when every other gig at Liverpool Uni. Students Union featured TYA. Absolutely representative of a place and time for me. A fine player.

Wow. I have two Tens Years After albums. I particularly like their rendition of "I Can't Keep From Crying", with Alvin on vocals and jazz-style guitar. And from "Stonedhenge", there's the original version of "I'm Goin' Home", plus their rendition of Woody Herman's "Woodchopper's Ball" - my favorite Tens Years After track.

I have sometimes heard his guitar playing criticized, but I loved it. RIP.

Don
