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.
