The great Alvin Lee died earlier this year, fondly remembered, but mostly seen as a second-tier Brit Blooze guy. Back in the day, though, Lee's tag was "fastest guitar" in rock. He was certainly the fastest player pre-EVH. Here's Ten Years After's famous Woodstock showstopper "I'm Going Home," but give a listen to Cricklewood Green and Sssh. If you like your psychedelia blues-based, these are monsters.
