It just isn't TYA without Lee. Joe Gooch is a more than adequate replacement, but without Alvin Lee there is no TYA. We have the same discussions here with Purple sans Blackmore. Certain groups have that 'rock' they are built upon, and when the rock shifts the whole building starts to collapse. Think of some others that may or may not ever happen: Metallica without Hetfield; is it MOtorhead without Lemmy ?; Aerosmith without Tyler, etc.. I remember the Zep reunion talk and how it would not be Zeppelin w.o Plant, or Queen without Freddie is not the same, so I just see Lizzy today as Lizzy Lite, great taste but much less filling.
