Alvin Lee passed away suddenly on March 6, 2013 - a shock to everyone, band members past and present are still numb over it. Brigitte and I (Dave) just returned from Paris where there was a "Tribute" to "Alvin Lee" as he was to play here (in Paris) on Sunday April 7, 2013......On the original concert bill, was to be another meeting of Johnny Winter and Alvin Lee, that has not happened in 30 years. At this tribute concert, it was Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Jimmy Gallagher, Tommy Emmanuel, Robben Ford. Ten minutes before show time, the Woodstock 1969 version of, Ten Years After's - "I'm Going Home" was played over the venue's P.A. System to the audience's delight. This was followed by stage announcements in French - "A Minute Of Silence". A pin wouldn't dare drop in that minute...but it damn well would be heard loud and clear if it had. Roughly 2,500 music lovers in attendence and total silence. It they turned the lights off, you would think no one was there at all. Nothing more was said about Alvin that evening. He was on everyone's mind, and in their hearts, and I like many others thought to ourselves, Alvin would be / should be standing right there, center stage on this evening, That's when the reality sunk in. It's a done deal now Alvin Lee, "Rock On". From Dave - Brigitte and our Ten Years After Family of Friends.
