For those who have only seen the Woodstock footage of Alvin Lee, you're in for a hell of a suprise. What's he been doing all these years since? My guess is practicing, judging by his playing these days. I had the pleasure of opening up for him with my band about 15 years ago at Toads Place in New Haven, CT. We were expecting an old warhorse to creep in and hack away at his old set, us feeling rather sad for the old geez. Instead Alvin and friends showed up and politely handed us our [rears]. They were tight, he was on top of his game, melodic (which suprised the hell out of me) and outstanding, both from a guitar and a vocal perspective.
