    Oh hell them's from my style o' music!
    Never got me real far though, and in that arena I preferred electric cello.
    I did play a lotta scary guitar though!
    If you're goin' out, might as well go all the way...

    In our town, Malmo Sweden there's even a local pharmacy shop of in which the owners surname is "Jeffbeck". Pia Jeffbeck is her full name. She's heard them all jokes and cunning comments. She's fed up with it. She doesn't like Jeff Beck at all, or that type of music. She didn't even knew that that name came from that.

    I used to brag to my friends, and start with "well, have you heard that Peter Green moved here to south Sweden in his retirement years..." and they'll go "no, you're kidding", and I showed them that it was actually true. He was involved with a Swedish woman, of course. Like for 5-6 years. 30 minutes aways from here by car.

    Then I'll carry on "...and Jeff Beck works in a local pharmacy shop here in Malmoe" and then they go "noooo, now you're really pulling one on us..." and I show them...:D

    I got things called about me that doesn't suit in print, and get things thrown at me, and low moans... ;)

    I didn't try to bond with her, so that I could brag and say "I know jeffbeck". She's retired by now anyway.

    I chose Clapton of the three provided.

    Rory and Eric would be in a tie. I definitely listen to more Rory than Eric.

    For listening to, Jimmy Page. for stealing riffs, Eric Clapton. For admiring but not listening to or learning from, Jeff Beck.

    I listen to Jeff a lot, otherwise I tend to agree. I have no hope of stealing anything from Jeff. I don't even try.

    "Wired" and "Blow by Blow" still make me grin after all these years.
