Alvin Lee (born Graham Anthony Barnes, 19 December 1944 – 6 March 2013) was a British guitarist and singer, best known as the lead guitarist and singer with the blues-rock/pop band Ten Years After.
He was born in Nottingham and attended the Margaret Glen-Bott School in Wollaton which was a precursor to Comprehensive Schools with grammar and secondary modern streams. He began playing guitar at the age of 13, and with Leo Lyons formed the core of the band Ten Years After in 1960. Influenced by his parents' collection of jazz and blues records, it was the advent of rock and roll that sparked his interest, and guitarists such as Chuck Berry and Scotty Moore provided his inspiration.
