Almost 10 years later, Ten Years After are back
After almost ten years away, a very different Ten Years After return with an impressive new album
A lot hashappened to Ten Years After since their previous studio album in 2008. Frontman Joe Gooch and original bassist Leo Lyons have quit, plus they’ve weathered the sad news of the passing of Alvin Lee, the band’s one-time guitar hero and singer. Alvin’s legacy now rests with new boys Marcus Bonfanti (guitar/vocals) and bassist Colin Hodgkinson, plus surviving founder members Chick Churchill (keyboards) and Ric Lee (drums). Thankfully the band’s heavy cross-breed of hard rock and jazzy blues is very much intact on exceptional new album A Sting In The Tale. Drummer Lee explains all.
