Alvin Lee, one of the most gifted musicians of all time (IMO), has passed away at 68

"I'd love to change the world", althought the lyrics are a bit controversial, has one of the greatest guitar runs I've ever heard.

He never got the praise and recognition from the public that he got from his peers.

Cited as an influence by many well known guitar players. Not too many get a GIBSON signature model, but Alvin Lee did. RIP.

Woodstock.... I'M GOING HOME! MY BABY!

I listened to this album constantly back in the day, and purchased the CD a couple years back.

Always loved Lee and 10YA. Truly one of the most under-rated and neglected guitarists ever. RIP
