    Born in Nottingham, England, United Kingdom

    Alvin Lee (December 19, 1944- ), guitar and vocals
    Leo Lyons (November 30, 1943- ), bass guitar
    Ric Lee (October 20, 1945- ), drums

    Recorded the albums 'Ten Years After' (1967), 'Undead' (1968), 'Stonedhenge' (1969), 'Ssssh' (1969), 'Cricklewood Green' (1970), 'Watt' (1970), 'A Space in Time' (1971), 'Rock and Roll Music to the World' (1972), 'Recorded Live' (1973), 'About Time' (1989), 'Now' (2004) and 'Evolution' (2008)
    They chose their name because they started ten years after Elvis.
    Given that Elvis actually had his first hits in 1956, they should have been called Eleven Years After.
    Despite their constant touring, they never had a top ten album in the US.
    They had one hit single in both the UK and the US ('Love Like a Man' in Britain, 'I'd Love to Change the World' in America).
    Despite their names, the Lees are not related. (Alvin Lee's birth name was Graham Barnes.)
    Their breakthrough was a ten-minute long performance of 'Going Home' in the film 'Woodstock.'
    During their heyday, they toured the US 28 times in seven years, performing in front of four million people a year.
    Ten of their albums sold over a million copies.
