Re: Jeff Beck
Jeff Beck was (and still is) a great guitarist. I agree with aydee- Wired is an excellent album with two slammin' drummers. I think Narada Michael Walden's aggressive thunder-fusion ("Led Boots") contrasts nicely with Richard Bailey's loose British funk ("Head For Backstage Pass").
I recently got the chance to listen to Charlie Christian's guitar playing, and it's incredible because I can hear how other giants of the instrument like George Benson, Wes Montgomery and even Les Paul modeled their styles after his.
