Rest In Peace Jeff Beck

Very sad

Growing up and playing guitar, this was the guy who ever professional guitarist said to listen to. One of the magazines would ask a pro every month to name their 5 essential guitar albums, and almost every single one would mention Beck’s Blow By Blow. If you play rock guitar, you are mandate by law to own that album, and, preferably Wired to go with it. This is the way you play guitar. This is how you put songs together. Beck could easily have made them all about him, but, no, he wanted compete songs, so, the bass guitar, drums, and keyboards featured heavily. There are lots and lots of keyboard solos.

And you can tell from all those big rock musicians tweeting out that he was beyond respected. He really is one of the greatest guitarists of all time, and one of the OGs, going back to the Yardbirds. Here’s a pretty good list of his top 10 songs, though it is missing People Get Ready. A lot of people who listen to rock would probably be surprised, not realizing it is Beck on stuff like

Blanket with Imogen Heap is pretty incredible, as well.

    Never had a chance to watch Beck.

    We watched ZZ TOP in Vegas back in August of 2021 not long after they lost Dusty Hill their Bass player in July. They brought out a new guy to play for him but it was sad, but still a good show. 72 years old, the legends are slowly slipping away from us.

    I am amazed at how many 70+ yo rockers are still out there touring. Those guys are ancient.
