Alvin Lee, R.I.P.

Alvin-Lee-1975-4

Guitarist Alvin Lee, founder of the band Ten Years After, has died at the age of 68.

Lee is perhaps best known for the fiery fretwork on the blues workout “I’m Going Home,” immortalized by the movie Woodstock. The group’s appearance at the Woodstock festival and movie made them very famous, and a few years later the band had its biggest hit, “I’d Love To Change The World.”

  1. Bad news at the loss of Alvin Lee. One of the great British blues guitarist from that very productive period of the late 60’s early 70’s
