The message at his page reads:

“We have lost a wonderful, much loved father and companion. The world has lost a great and truly gifted musician.”

And we sure have, fans all over and his family members will sure regret his lost. One of those members is wife Evi Lee.

Just so we can have an idea of what a great person he was and the mark that he left on others here some of the last word of goodbye some have expressed of this truly gifted musician:

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. ~ Leo Lyons

Devastated. He was a great man. ~ Chick Churchill

Alvin’s last CD was released on August 28, 2012 titled: Alvin Lee Still On The Road To Freedom. To our surprise he did not begin his music career playing the guitar but he started out with the clarinet never the less he was truly dedicated to his music, his art, his work, his passion…but above all the fame he was also a dedicated and loving husband and father. Alvin and his ex girlfriend Suzanne had a a daughter Jasmine who also works in the music business. But they went their separate ways and he got married to Evi who became Evi Lee. Here is a note signed by the three women in his life:

“With great sadness, we have to announce that Alvin unexpectedly passed away early this morning after unforeseen complications following a routine surgical procedure,” “We have lost a wonderful, much loved father and companion. The world has lost a great and truly gifted musician.”
