What has come across the news wire within the last hours has more than saddened me. The death of 68-year-old guitarist Alvin Lee.
I may be going on 56 but in my mind I’m still that Woodstock Generation teenager. And the performance that this man gave at that concert of all concerts will forever be etched in my mind.
I’m Going Home… sadly for us now he has. But I’m certain to a much better place. We seem to be losing so many of our Rock boomers lately and it’s more than disheartening. It’s like our youth is truly leaving us. To me this is a very solemn day.
So many favorites from this group and this man. The Rock and Roll world has lost one of its best sons and for his millions of fans world-wide we sit stunned. Alvin Lee contribution to Rock & Blues will always live on. He made our music world that much richer and will never be forgotten.
My sediments right now is this song that was always one of my top favorites, its title though now sadly fits.
Gone too soon but the music will blast on. God Speed
