Just heard the unbelievably sad news that ALVIN LEE (Ten Years After) died this morning following a routine surgical operation!! Born on 19 December 1944, he was 69 years old. Wow – our heroes are leaving us at a seriously quick pace!! RIP Alvin – you were undeniably one of the true guitar greats! I’ll be doing a short tribute to him on my RockIt Scientist show tomorrow night (on Mix93.8fm, between 8pm and midnight). Special feature will be on the mighty BLUE OYSTER CULT!! Streaming via www.mixfm.co.za or http://tunein.com/radio/Mix-938-s133441/. Plus, of course, the usual MIX of blues, metal, rock, etc etc. TUNE INNN!!
