Alvin Lee . Not exactly a household name, but the man turned in a bravura performance when he and his band, Ten Years After, performed "Going Home."

Lee passed away at his home in England early today.

According to Lee's Official Website:

"With great sadness we have to announce that Alvin unexpectedly passed away early this morning after unforseen complications following a routine surgical procedure," his homepage reads. "We have lost a wonderful much-loved father and companion, the world has lost a truly great and gifted musician. Jasmin, Evi and Suzanne."

In total,Lee released 14 solo studio albums, including last year's 'Still on the Road to Freedom,' which referenced the title to his 1973 solo debut 'On the Road to Freedom,' sadly unwittingly bringing his career full circle before his premature death this morning.
