Remembering Alvin Lee


Alvin Lee

March 6th was a tough day.  The world also lost Alvin Lee, guitarist, leader and singer of Ten Years After.  This band is one of those bands that etched a big place in the soundtrack of my life, this song in particular. “I’d Love To Change The World“.  It has a short interview at the beginning and gets cut off at the end, Oh well.

 

 

The band hit its stride at Woodstock, and contributed to the idealism of the 60’s and early 70’s.  Terrific player, great band, he will be missed, Alvin Lee, dead at 69.

 

 

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

  1. He was oneof the GREASTEST to play. Everybody talks about Hendricks and the Who. As far as I’m concerned he was up there with them.RIP

  2. Great tune! Alvin will live on far into the future on this one.

  3. Great tune, sad that he died!
