    I saw him play with Ten Years After at the old Boston Garden.  Sad

    So many guitars, so little time

    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.

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