Alvin Lee – In Memoriam

As we age so do our rock and roll heroes. It is with great sadness I learned today that Alvin Lee of Ten Years After fame died this morning.

His website reported that Alvin Lee (age 68),

“… passed away early this morning after unforeseen complications following a routine surgical procedure.”

His family through their sorrow bravely shared the tragic news with the world,

 “We have lost a wonderful and much loved father and companion. The world has lost a truly great and gifted musician.

I flashed on all the sensational Ten Years After albums I enjoyed listening to in my collection.  Listening to them now in your honor Alvin Lee. Thank you for the great guitar work. You gave blues rock that special tinged edge.
