Wasn't that Graham Barnes of Ten Years After?

Just checked Wiki - yes he was.

...Says he reportedly died in Spain. Why does everybody die in Spain?? Is
it some in-vogue thing not to be caught dead outside it if you're a celeb? :confused:

Crikey, he was a bit good too, one of my first childhood heroes. In other news Kenny Ball passed away today.

Slasher:

The media reported that Alvin Lee died as the result of "complications from routine surgery."

Don't know about you but I think of no surgery as being routine.

Having said that: RIP Alvin Lee. I remember 10 Years After as a kid. Had several of their LP's.

Sad loss!

I can't keep from cryin' sometimes on the "Recorded Live" 1973 album has always been one of my TYA favourites. The Slow Blues in C is also great.

Me neither - but given that (and my last post) is there something about these Spanish surgeons
I don't know about? Is it cheaper in Spain or something to have one's "routine surgery"? :confused:

Good grief - I was listening to a TYA anthology last night ... spooky. Wilko Johnson's farewell tour (literally) has started as well .... :(:sad:
