RIP Ten Years After guitarist Alvin Lee
WITH GREAT SADNESS WE HAVE TO ANNOUNCE THAT
ALVIN UNEXPECTEDLY PASSED AWAY EARLY THIS MORNING
AFTER UNFORSEEN COMPLICATIONS FOLLOWING A ROUTINE SURGICAL PROCEDURE.
WE HAVE LOST A WONDERFUL MUCH LOVED FATHER AND COMPANION,
THE WORLD HAS LOST A TRULY GREAT AND GIFTED MUSICIAN.
JASMIN, EVI AND SUZANNE
Alvin, sadly, is none other than Alvin Lee of Ten Years After. The shredder passed with quite the legacy though, having played Woodstock with his band and launching a fruitful solo/session career in the early seventies playing with names like Bo Diddley, George Harrison, Steve Winwood, Ronnie Wood, Mick Fleetwood, Jerry Lee Lewis, Peter Frampton and more. Though his guitar skills were nothing short of killer, Ten Years After will probably be best remembered for their hit “I’d love to change to world,” which you can stream below.
RIP Alvin, though you are gone, you cannot be forgotten.
