The rock music community is reflecting on the life and reacting to the death of Ten Years After’s Alvin Lee. Founding Ten Years After member Leo Lyons released a statement yesterday: “I heard only a few hours ago about Alvin passing away. It came as a complete shock to me and I have still not taken it in. I feel very sad. He was the closest thing I had to a brother. We had our differences but we shared so many great experiences together that nothing can take away. I will miss him very much. He was an inspiration for a generation of guitar players. Keep on Rocking Alvin.”

Queen guitarist Brian May said on his official website, “His speed and dexterity, in the days when I would go as a student to the Marquee Club to see Ten Years After, was scary and exciting. He was daring enough to play and sing close to his limit every time. As a man off-stage, his persona was modest and gentle. On stage – a giant who will be missed greatly.”

Other artists took to Twitter to speak on Lee. Here are just a few examples:

– Roberto Boschian, WOMC, Detroit
