British guitarist Alvin Lee of Ten Years After dies

Best known for his performance with rock band Ten Years After at Woodstock in 1969, Alvin Lee died on Wednesday at age 68, his family said.  “I’d Love to Change the World” is the tune I most associate with the band.  But performance at Woodstock was iconic. (Read Rueters story)

Oddly, here’s the other song I remember from Alvin Lee.  In the mid 80’s, Q-95 in Indianapolis was playing “Detroit Diesel”.  Or at least that’s what I think is my memory.  Here is a video with the cut from the album. Pretty generic bloozy pub rock, but I think I liked the chorus… RIP
