Ten Years After Singer And Guitarist Alvin Lee Dies Aged 68

Alvin Lee, guitarist and singer of Ten Years After, has passed away aged 68.

A statement on his official website reads: "With great sadness we have to announce that Alvin unexpectedly passed away early this morning after unforseen 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."

British born Alvin Lee has been an international star since the early sixties. His incredible showcase of blues-rock at Woodstock propelling him and his sticker-clad "Big Red" Gibson ES-335 to iconic status.

Following the split of Ten Years After in 1973, Lee turned his hand to recording solo, releasing a number of albums and collaborating with big names such as Mick Fleetwood, George Harrison, Steve Winwood and Ron Wood. His last release, 2012's 'Still On The Road To Freedom', confirmed his place amongst blues-rock's greatest artists.

RIP Alvin Lee.
