The band, who had eight Top 40 albums in the UK, had their biggest hit in 1971 with I’d Love To Change the World. “We have lost a wonderful and much loved father and companion, the world has lost a truly great and gifted musician,” said the statement from his wife and daughters. Lee worked with The Beatles’ George Harrison, Steve Winwood, Ronnie Wood and Mick Fleetwood on his first solo album, On the Road to Freedom, in 1973. He released his 14th record, Still on the Road to Freedom, in August last year. He was due to play a concert at Olympia Hall in Paris on 7 April with blues guitarist Johnny Winter. From the BBC.
