Alvin Lee has passed away at the age of 68. The announcement came from his official website:

“With great sadness we have to announce that Alvin unexpectedly passed away early this morning after unforeseen complications following a routine surgical procedure.

We have lost a wonderful and much loved father and companion, the world has lost a truly great and gifted musician.

Mr. Lee was best known of course for his work in the band he founded in the late 60s, Ten Years After.  The name originated from the fact they began ten years after the start of rock and roll.

He was born Graham Alvin Barnes in Nottingham, England United Kingdom.
