                    THE FINAL FAREWELL !!!    The Guitar Master says GOODBYE to his  fans



My first contact with Alvin Lee, was through the film Woodstock.
I was impressed and I discovered that I wanted to be a guitar player and to know Alvin.
It's delayed a long time but I got.

One day, I was taking a course in New York, when a taxi driver asked me if I liked Rock'n'Roll.
I answered that yes. Then he informed me that on that night,
a musician that had participated in Woodstock was doing a show in Queens.
As I had attended the film at least a 27 times only to see Ten Years After - I always entered in the movies
in the same minute, everyday, only to see Alvin and as soon as finished I'm going home, I leave the movies,
happy and went back home to play my guitar recently bought.

I asked taxi driver who was in the city, and he told me: Alvin Lee.
I thought that it went a joke but even so, I decided to go to Queens, contradicting the personnel's
of the hotel instructions that told me that Queens was very dangerous.
I called the same taxi driver and I went to the encounter of my idol, taking 2 photographic cameras
and 1 tape recorder stereo.
It was one of the best things that I did in my life... and at the end of the night,
I was received at the dressing room by Alvin, where we talked for 45 minutes.
I won a T-shirt of Harley, a non engraved pick, an autograph and a CD.

Unhappily, when he was in São Paulo (my home town), for the show at Palace, I didn't have the same luck.
I talked with him (that remembered me) during about 3 minutes and him he told me that it was afraid.
Normal feeling for who was received for more than 2 thousand people completely hysterical
with the return of TYA.
