    I missed this about a month ago -- legendary guitarist Alvin Lee of Ten Years After (and also famous for his Woodstock performance, "I'm Going Home") died at 68 on March 6th.

    Woodchopper's Ball is about the fastest I have ever heard a guitar played. He was amazing.

    I have a really nice record he did w/ an American gospel singer by the name of Mylon LeFevre in the early '70s called On the Road to Freedom. IIRC, there were a bunch of great back-up musicians. It's the anithesis of his TYA work - gentle, accoustic stuff...
