    I recall the name from when I was 17 and in high school. Other than that, it draws a blank

    When were you in high school? Must have been later on? Jeff Beck is probably one of the most famous rock guitarists of all time. But it's only been in recent years that he's been keeping a higher profile with constant touring.

    I wasn't that crazy about the last CD of his that I purchased. Emotion & Commotion is the title. I like the old Jeff Beck Group from the early 70s, and his mid 70s instrumental albums Blow By Blow, and Wired.

    But these days I don't listen to much rock music. Mostly jazz in the summer months, and classical in winter. But Jeff Beck is a very tasty guitarist, and I'd rather listen to him than most others.

    I absolutely LOVE his work with Jan Hammer (weirdly of "Miami Vice Theme" fame, but better known to me from Mahavishnu Orchestra and other great collaborations). "Blue Wind" is a rock force of nature.




    On a side note - doesn't the man ever age?

    I remember him as one of the 70s guitar greats. Didn't he have a band with Rod Stuart as lead singer. I remember the song Ain't Superstitious but a black cat crossed my path, and old blues tune that Rod sang and I think Jeff Beck played guitar on that.

    Rod Stewart was on Beck's first two albums. They didn't have much material, so they did a lot of covers.

    I always thought he was ridiculously self indulgent. I remember hearing a record where he interrupted a set to play a 30 minute solo on Foggy Mountain Breakdown. He also said some really nasty things about Stevie Wonder over "Superstition".
    I think he was the least of the Yardbirds Guitarists, way behind Clapton and Page.
    The best thing he ever did was hire Rod Stewart.

    Jeff Beck loves Stevie Wonder. I don't think there was any true malice between the two. It was record business stuff, and Motown made sure Stevie recorded and released his great version of the song.

    I never saw Beck as "ridiculously self indulgent". He plays with good taste and restraint. The complete opposite of Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin. As for Clapton? His solo career never did anything for me. He was great with Cream, and Derek & The Dominos.
