Alvin Lee of Ten Years After has passed away. Not a bass player but a great musician, just the same.
Sad. RIP Alvin. They'll be rippin' it up in the heavenly host tonight.
He's going home.
Yep.. Just heard. Routine surgery gone bad.
"I'd Love To Change The World" too... RIP
Oh man, that really sucks to hear. Ssssh was probably the first great blues rock album I heard as a kid. The album he did with Mylon LeFerve was a favorite too. I've been eyeballing the Ssssh album recently because I've been missing it. I'm gonna go pick up both of those.
Badass at Woodstock. RIP.
Sorry to hear this - I really enjoyed his music as a teenager in the sixties. Cricklewood Green and StonedHenge were my favs. Like many of my generation, bands like Ten Years After were an introduction to the blues.
R.I.P. to a great guitarist. I got see Ten Years After in the early 70s along with Wild Turkey (featuring bassist Glen Cornick previously with Jethro Tull), and Law. What a great concert. I still have the flyer and ticket stub.
listen to Woodchopper's Ball on the UNDEAD album and you will truly understand what blazing, burning guitar is all about
I first heard of T.Y.A. when I was 15,(1972) I was always and still amazed at his giutar playing. Some lyrics from "Once there was a Time" R.I. P Alvin Lee
Once there was a time I'd rob my mama
For a good meal and a smoke
Once there was a time I'd sell my brother
For a dollar when I was broke
But I'd never sell my guitar
And my strings were always sharp
'Cause if I don't have a guitar
I'll be strumming on some angels harp
And if I don't get to heaven
And I go down there below
Better be a guitar when I get there
Or, I will refuse to go
Once there was a time I was hungry
And I'd find my food in some bin
But I'd never, never sell my guitar
'Cause that would, darling, that would be a sin
Heaven is Rockin right now...
That's 3 famous (or infamous) people in the last couple of days.
William Moody (AKA Paul Bearer/Percy Pringle)
It is a sad day for me.
I will never, ever forget the impression that performance made on me first time I saw the movie. Didn't know him from Adam, but walked out of the theater a believer.
Well,R.I.P. for two of them.
Gone too soon.
R. I. P. Alvin
Saw Ten Years After twice in early '70's. Alvin was a monster on guitar and Leo Lyons was
brutal on bass, he would beat the strings like he was disciplining a bad dogs. I'm sure his bass had the road worn look at 3 months old.
Correct. TYA and Richie Havens stole the show IMO.
