    Wow. Just yesterday I got the burning desire to listen to some TYA, so I found a YouTube audio clip of "Bad Scene" and "Two Time Mama" , the amazing opening two (?) tracks of Ssssh ...

      RIP.  I only have one TYA (live) album, but it's great.

    Alvin and Ten Years After were very popular with the counter culture music fans ( hippies!) back in the late 60s. I saw them several times at The Fillmore East. Always crowd pleasers, Alvin and band never left anything on the stage. RIP Alvin.

    Major bummer. He was an early fave of mine. Great player. R.I.P., Alvin.

      Very sad to hear. Hard to believe that JW has outlasted him and many others from the Woodstock gen.
