Not sure what to say?

The best guitarist ever no comparison. I was lucky enough to see you at Joans Beach on Long Island.
Thank you and RIP

Alvin Lee set me on a course for the rest of my life after seeing TYA at Sheffield City Hall UK in the mid 1970's. I was a young impressionable 16 year old, I never looked back. What a band and what a guitarist!
RIP Alvin.

Godspeed Alvin, and thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.

Fastest guitarist I ever saw. I hated to read that Alvin Lee had died. I saw TYA just twice, in San Diego and in El Paso, Texas in the early 1970s. Lee and tya were my favorites. He was just so fast. RIP

ALVIN LEE'S PERFORMANCE AT WOODSTOCK ALONE SHOULD PUT HE OR THE BAND IN THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME. HE SHOULD ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED WITH ALL THE REST OF THE GREAT GUITARISTS. I SAW HIM PERFORM & CANNOT PUT THE FEELING TO WORDS.
GOD BLESS YOU, ALVIN. I MISS YOU THOUGH YOU DIDN'T KNOW ME.

It was at Long Beach Arena in 1974 when I had the amazing opportunity to finally see Alvin "fast fingers" Lee, and Ten Years After, in their prime, and before the band had broken up.
He was far more amazing than anyone who had told me about him could ever describe. He had great precision, tone, and was the first one with that quick technique, and blues greatness. I saw him again in 1979 with Ten Years Later, and the last time in the early 1980's. All 3 times that I saw...

Mr. Lee no longer needs to speak in present tense about "going home". My heart's greatest desire is that all who, like myself, grew up in total awe of such a supremely gifted musician as him will please realize the absolute brevity of this life, and make the best choice possible, coming to the God who created this wonderful thing we call music that they might have life.

My fellow Sagittarius, if only I could have met you in your lifetime. A true blooded rebel thru and thru. See you on the other side my friend ❤
