Remembering Alvin Lee

Sad news this week that British Blues legend Alvin Lee past away unexpectedly after minor surgery. Along with Cream and The Who, Alvin's band Ten Years After was an obsession of mine in high school, fueled in large part by what is arguably the standout performance on the Woodstock soundtrack.

The first time I saw the Woodstock movie I was dumbfounded by Alvin's killer guitar face and his watermelon.  I got a kick out of watching it again tonight.
