Default Jeff Beck!

Jeff Beck !

The guy who lost the 'Guitar Gods of History' sweepstakes' to Jimmy Page & Eric Clapton...

I think he's such an innovator who makes his guitar talk, n' whisper, n' shout, scream and belch, n' grunt, and wheeze, ..........and yodel....!

What a player!

Who never quite got the props he deserved

Here he is at London's swank Ronnie Scotts with Vinnie & Tal

Hi
I agree with you guys...I believe Jeff Beck had problems over the years due to time off healing from auto accidents....He races cars and had several mayor accidents. He is clearly one of the best! Denis

Yes, Jeff beck is one of my favorites as well. Why he doesn't get more "due" is beyond me.
The man is amazing.

He does love his cars and hot rods. I think that's really his "passion". Playing guitar just "pays the bills". So we see him every 5-10 years now, surrounded by some of the best of the best, he records, tours, and then it's back to his garage.

Harry, you're too funny.

Jeff Beck had a problem with tinnitus, which side tracked his career for a decade. I think it was from listening to groupies scream.

Of the Yardbird three, he has always been my favorite.

Wasn't really trying to be funny. I met the man in 1994, and that's what he told me.

An amazing inevator, filling the singer's lace with an amazing lead guitar, he's done so much for instrumental music. The man is a god.

He certainly is NOT underrated by his peers. Like Allan Holdsworth, Jeff is in the stratosphere among guitarists.

The perfect alignment of the Stars:

Jeff Beck and Stanley Clarke (the Jeff Beck of Bass Players) doing Clarke's "Lopsy Lu":

All we need to finish such a trio is Neal Peart or Terry Bozzio.
