Alvin Lee

Alvin Lee (born Graham Barnes) is an English rock guitarist and singer. He began playing guitar at the age of 13, and with Leo Lyons formed the core of the band Ten Years After in 1960. Influenced by his parents' collection of jazz and blues records, it was the advent of rock and roll that sparked his interest, and guitarists such as Chuck Berry and Scotty Moore provided his inspiration.

Joe Cocker

John Robert "Joe" Cocker, OBE is an English rock and blues singer, who came to popularity in the 1960s. He is most known for his gritty voice and idiosyncratic arm movements while performing. He was ranked #97 on Rolling Stone's 100 greatest singers list. In 1964, Cocker signed a recording contract as a solo act with Decca and released his first single, a cover of the Beatles' "I'll Cry Instead" (with Jimmy Page playing backup guitar).
