Alvin Lee: 1944-2013

Guitar legend Alvin Lee has left the planet:

With great sadness we have to announce that Alvin unexpectedly passed away early this morning after unforeseen 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

His performance with of I'm Going Home with his band Ten Years After at Woodstock (1969/08/17) is a classic. A show of speed and dexterity that would become a milestone for guitarists. Play really fucking loud.
