    Alvin Lee passes away

    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.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Sad news.
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner

    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.



    Another truly gifted guitarist passes.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

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