Guitar Great Alvin Lee Passes Away

03.06.2013

Guitar legend Alvin Lee of Ten Years After has died of complications after routine surgery, reports BBC News. He was 68.

The British guitarist shot to worldwide attention with a staggering Woodstock performance in 1969.

Lee talked to Guitar World about his ‘Big Red’ ES-335 just last year. “I've still got the original Woodstock 335, but, sadly, I don’t use it these days as it has become too valuable. She’s now in a vault since some loony offered me half a million dollars for her.

Alvin Lee’s family announced the sad news on his website, saying: "We have lost a wonderful and much loved father and companion, the world has lost a truly great and gifted musician."
