    Wow. That makes me sad.

    Got several of the Ten Years After albums.

    I'm going to have to give them a spin this weekend and raise a glass in remembrance.

    Man, I just saw this on the internet. Died unexpectedly after "routine" surgery in Spain. I saw him play live a few years back, having been a Ten Years After fan since junior high. He was a class act. R.I.P.

    Rest in Peace, Mr. Lee, you will be missed.

    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!

    One of the best guitarists in history. Stonedhenge, Shhhhh...., Cricklewood Green, and A Space In Time are all on the "must buy" albums list, IMO. Thanks Alvin for the great music.

    Edit: Oh, and Jesse the Audio Fidelity Gold CD of A Space In Time does sound fantastic! Thanks for the recommendation.

    Very sad.

    I literally just finished listening to a remastered (Live at the Fillmore East in 1970) version of 50,000 Miles Beneath My Brain before I stumble upon this thread and learned of this terrible news. RIP
