the 75 year old six string slinger was born on 24 June 1944... amazing player to this day.
I've seen him live twice in the past few years, always enthralling playing and never disappoints!
Seems like it took the Ronnie Scott’s video for him to finally achieve commercial success on a level anywhere near commensurate with his abilities.
I recommend the book “Hot Wired Guitar” for those who are into the rock bio thing.
Too many great recordings to pick a single favorite. I even like his contributions to the Young Guns movie “soundtrack” that Jon Bon Jovi released.
Here are a couple that I keep going back to:
Jeff is about the only one of the 60's "Guitar Gods" I still pay any attention to. Nobody else out there quite like him - at 75 or any age!
Great player, good guy. I wonder why the lead melody part sounds so sweet in the major pentatonic, not so much in the minor pentatonic, but OK in the D minor scale ?
I taught that guy everything he knows.
Kidding. Jeff is a monster.
A true master of the guitar. You got to love Jeff Beck.
One of the few living I’d love to see. Wishing him many more birthdays to come.
That was great, but the live version of “People Get Ready” that YouTube automatically played after the studio cut was even better. I just about lost it listening to Beck’s intro.
Beck is the best! Really love his playing--imagine being still relevant after such a long career. Many guys are content just to rehash the past, but Jeff keeps on trying and learning. Happy Birthday!
His live version of "Day in the Life" is amazing. I saw him playing up close, less than 10 feet away, and it was effortless playing with a great touch.
Jeff Beck is an original. I won’t say that I’ve liked everything he’s done, but even when my tastes differ, his skill and artistry are of the highest caliber. He seems to be a part of the instrument.
I have a great deal of respect for him. Some of his playing kinda falls into the uncanny valley for me. So smooth and precise, yet also sometimes feels too robotic. The feeling I get is listening to an auto tuner on voice.
After reading Jeff tried to model his phrasing after the voices of Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey I purchased several of their albums. Luckily the record shop had brown paper bags.
Such is an the influence of the man, myth, legend. Many happy returns champ!
Happy birthday Jeff Beck!
