    A great musician has died

    My friend, Alvin Lee, passed away yesterday morning. I feel so sad. I got to know him through John back in the early eighties and we had many visits - in England, Denmark and Spain. He was a great guy and an exceptional good guitarist! He also loved cats. Only about six months ago, he and Evi rescued two new ones from a shelter in Spain. They have two grown ups already. He sent a few pics of them, which I'll share.

    He will be missed all over the world... for his music and for his sweet personality.

    Rest in peace, Alvin. John will be welcoming you at the RB.

    I saw that on a cousin's Facebook wall this afternoon and you were the first person I thought of. It was you and DeliDog (Nicole) talking about 10 Years After that got me to purchase a few of their CD's and becomea fan several years ago.

    Rest in peace, Sir.

    Deepest sympathy to your family and all who love you.

    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    Rip Mr. Lee and thank you for sharing your talent with us. I so remember Alvin Lee from my younger, groupie days. Awesome!! Much too young to leave us
