Of all of the highlights of Woodstock "I'm Going Home" was always one of my favorites.

RIP Alvin

I believe between ten years after and Alvin lee as a solo artist, put out over 20 albums since the late 60's. although most remembered for their performance at Woodstock and a couple hits like "I'd love to change the world" and "love like a man" . Which are both great songs. Sad to see he died from complications from routine surgery. At 68. RIP !!!!

Default Alvin Lee

This was one bad man on a guitar. Out of all the guitar slingers around, to me, he was the best. This hurts me too, as i followed his career since Woodstock. Alvin, you will be missed by me for sure.Rock on
