I got a huge kick out of Alvin Lee. "One of these daaaaayyyyssss...."

A buddy of mine calls Alvin "The Yngwie of Woodstock" - classic!

I saw Alvin Lee with Ten Years After,Lynyrd Skynyrd and Rod Stewart at Roosevelt Stadium in'75 or'76. They really Rocked. In fact, Lynyrd Skynyrd played a rocking high energy set,Ten Years After killed it and after such powerful high energy the crowd booed Rod Stewart of the stage. I remember him singing Do you Think I'm Sexy and the crowd wanted to string him up.

"Ten Years After" is actually part of a 'revue' playing here in Kettering next couple of weeks...(Edgar Winter, Rick Derringer, Pat Travers, et.al) at the FRAZE Pavilion.. Can someone tell me how in the "H" "E" "DOUBLE" Ten Years After could walk on stage without Alvin Lee???? No word as to who is in the lineup....but what a joke.... Oh yea..."Canned Heat" is also on the bill....Hite and Wilson been gone for 25 or 30 years....

Shavian Maybe I am wrong about that song but the rest is true. Many years have passed and the memory fades and I was pretty toasted at that show. Those were the days!!!
