Subject: Alvin Lee, guitarist from "Ten Years After" pases away.

Written By: warped on 03/06/13 at 1:26 pm

British rock guitarist Alvin Lee, a member of the band Ten Years After, has died aged 68.

His family announced on his official website that he unexpectedly died on 6 March following complications during routine surgery.

The Nottingham-born musician rose to fame after appearing at the Woodstock festival in 1969.

The band, who had eight Top 40 albums in the UK, had their biggest hit in 1971 with I'd Love To Change the World.

"We have lost a wonderful and much loved father and companion, the world has lost a truly great and gifted musician," said the statement from his wife and daughters.

Lee worked with The Beatles' George Harrison, Steve Winwood, Ronnie Wood and Mick Fleetwood on his first solo album, On the Road to Freedom, in 1973.

He released his 14th record, Still on the Road to Freedom, in August last year.

He was due to play a concert at Olympia Hall in Paris on 7 April with blues guitarist Johnny Winter.

"I'd Love To Change the World" was such a great song.

Not a fan of Ten Years After, but it's always sad to hear somebody (anybody) passing away at a relatively young age. :(

In The Netherlands though, Ten Years After are mostly (if not solely) known for "I'm Goin' Home".
