am a big fan of Ten Years After.......

but they do not jam and never really did > just straight rockin' hard blues....

they had some jazzzzy moments as Alvin can play jazzy but I do not think it would be a good fit at all.

IMHO.

I think Alvin Lee is awesome and love Ten Years After, but I don't think he would be a good fit, his style with the ABB just might not mesh well.

Are you kidding me??? "Ten Years After doesn't jam, and never really did??"
Are we talking about the same band? Go to Amazon.com and pick up the live Fillmore CD's used for a few bucks. Listen to that and tell me they don't jam.
I do respect your opinion though about jamming with the Allman's, if you really feel that way. I just disagree about whether TYA jammed or not. They definitely did. Loud, and fast, as well as mellow and bluesy. Check out these videos.
I'd love to hear some more opinions, but maybe you're right. It was just a thought!!

I could picture Alvin trading licks on
"Nobody Left To Run With".

Neither could I, but I could picture him doing some cool oldschool blues.
That's what I'm talking about. I can't picture Leslie West, or Peter Frampton playing Nobody Left To Run With anymore than Alvin Lee. Again, it was just a thought, and I do respect your opinion. I just think the explosive power of Alvin would make for an interesting collaboration with Warren and Derek.
I guess I'm the only one who sees it that way.

I was being serious. I think Alvin on "Nobody

My apologies... I read it wrong. I though you wrote you Couldn't picture it.
I'm picturing more of a serious blues thing more than a standard ABB tune.
For example, when they did "The Sky Is Crying" with Chuck Levell. I could picture Alvin really tearing it up with one of those emotional kind of leads that gives you a lump in the throat.
Just a thought......just a thought.
I think it's funny how we're all thinking about what guests they'll have on stage.
For years there were none. I like the guest thing. It adds mystery, and excitement to the shows. It mixes things up nicely, and gives the audience a well deserved learning experience in most cases.

Alvin Lee is a great guitarist and with that very adaptable. If he were invited to sit in for an evening I believe he would not only mix in well but would also cause a grin or two of amazement on Warren and Dereks faces.
It wouldn't work long term but for one night they would all have a blast.

I don't think so..Way back when Duane and Alvin had some misunderstandings..like Duane saying he wasn't impressed with Alvin Lees playing and of course Lee fired back.
check your history folks

Is Duane gonna be there?? Do you really think Alvin Lee is holding a grudge against Duane Allman to this day? So much that he wouldn't come play with the band 40 years later?
I don't know, I never heard that story before, but your theory sounds a little far fetched.
I'm not expecting Alvin Lee to show up anyway, but I would love to see it happen.
You know, one of Alvin Lee's signature songs is Good Morning Little School Girl. Last time I checked, that was a regular in the ABB setlist. Just a thought......
...... and thanks for your feedback. I respect your opinion even if I disagree with it.

Alvin Lee is a greta guitar player and I would love to see him Derek and Warren have a go at I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes.

I'd love to see Alvin Lee jam with the boys too. Anyone ever listen to Recorded Live? His rendition of Good Miorning Little Schoolgirl is bad to the bone.

Alvin would have no problem jamming with the boys songs like 44 blues, stormy Monday, and with a bit of rehersal instrumental Illness would be killer.... and Ten Years After Jammed like a mofo, live they were always playing songs 20 min;s long...

Not sure if their styles would jell / fit but on the other hand:
they could do the ABB style slow version of "Good Morning Little School Girl" and
mid way change into the uptempo TYA version.

From what I remember reading it was Alvin that wasn't impressed with Duane and wouldn't let him sit in with TYA at a show the ABB open for TYA

I think Alvin is a phenomenal guitar player - one of the best. Wouldn't mind him going head to heads with 2 other phenomenal players who I KNOW will be there on some bluesie stuff.

I always thought of Alvin Lee as a speed demon and a shredder.

Bad blood between Duane and Alvin Lee? I've never heard such a report! I hope it's not true, as both were among my favorite players in that era. Different styles, but you'd think there would be some mutual respect there.

Yeah, Alvin was known for speed. His version of "Schoolgirl" was a lot more hyper than the version that Warren usually plays. I'm sure Alvin could apply the brakes a little, though.

Ten Years After did play several standard-type blues numbers, though. "Slow Blues in C", "My baby Left Me" come to mind. I'd bet he could jam just fine!

I just wish I could be there to hear it!

He was a speed demon- it would be nice if he slowed it down a bit on the mellower numbers

Anyone that thinks TYA did not Jam has never listened to the Fillmore CD. 4 of 6 songs run over 9 minutes...with another just under 8. All of their stuff up until "A Space in Time" had at least 1 to 2 songs with some long jams in them.

Also, I hear a lot more than any speed playing or shredding(can't believe anyone would call Alvin a shredder).


Here is some good stuff with some jamming
