Ten Years After Guitarist Dead at 68

Legendary Ten Years After guitarist and frontman Alvin Lee died early Wednesday morning of complications following a routine surgical procedure, according to a message on his website. He was 68. The statement read: “With great sadness we have to announce that Alvin passed away early this morning (Wednesday) after unforeseen complications following a routine surgical procedure. We have lost a wonderful and much loved father and companion, the world has lost a truly great and gifted musician.” Lee co-founded Ten Years After in the early 60s with bassist Leo Lyons, and the band’s defining moment came at their appearance at Woodstock, especially their extended and fiery rendition of “I’m Going Home,” considered by many to be a highlight of the 1969 festival. Additional signature songs from the group include “One of These Days,” “I’d Love to Change the World,” “Baby Won’t You Let Me Rock ‘N’ Roll You,” “Rock & Roll Music to the World,” “Rock Your Mama,” “Good Morning Little School Girl” and “Choo Choo Mama.”

In 2012 Alvin Lee released his last album, Still On The Road To Freedom.
