    Perhaps arguably the best blues/rock guitar player of his era. Far better skill and precision than Clapton or Page (Jeff Beck is about the tonal dynamics and always was in a universe all his own). Alvin did his thing and I think largely didn't socialize with rock's elite (or its promotion engine).

    Despite that for us late sixties, early seventies wanna be guitar gods Alvin Lee DID Change the World.
