My Favorite Blues Man - Alvin Lee

Here's my favorite blues man, Alvin Lee. He gets me through the long afternoons while I wait for my people to get home from work. This clip is from 1968. He's about 21 years old here. He's a bit older now, but ain't we all?

Love Alvin Lee! get this: on Blues Night at 2nd Atlanta Int'l Pop Festival (I worked the band stage!): 1-Lee Michaels 2-Ten Years After 3-Johnny Winter And 4-BB King 5-The Allman Brothers...
THEN, all the other guitarists (Alvin, BB, Johnny) jammed with the Allman Bros for about 2 more hours!! It was about 8 hrs of the type of concert where "kill me now" is all you can say afterwards!

- go out on the high note! - nothing else like in my lifetime, and the next night HENDRIX played during a 4th of July fireworks show!!

DANG!!! - later
