Thanks for that. Beck is my favourite electric guitarist.
Well that was rather nice, wasn't it? I never knew the Nigel connection.
ya, and Nigel reading Hot Hod magazines in the movie...... guess who is a real hotrodder.....
and yes, one of my heros since the 60s. he always keeps moving on and exploring
JB is an all time great! At times, he simply amazes me.
Hi Ho turned me on to JB,so the song served its purpose.
He's a gentleman as well as an influence. Thanks for posting.
Just see him live while you have the chance. His performance speaks for itself. Hendrix, Buchanan, Beck, BB King... who else has that magic touch to create such pure expression? Clapton and Page are great, but they're not at that level. Beck's invention and command are astonishing. He is beyond any competition... though there's a famous video of Beck and Clapton trading leads on "Further on Down the Road" in which Beck just destroys all.
Thanks for posting.
How many times has a producer said "do this or you're not gonna be on TV..." as he referred to Mickie Most's "motivational chat-up" to play as directed or go away...
I see most of the directions I turned in my life/career as marked by interactions w/ self-appointed gate-keepers - some I rebuffed and others, I knuckled-under. Robert Frost was right; two roads diverged in a yellow wood. . .I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference

I really enjoyed that interview, thanks for posting! Jeff had some hilarious comments at times.
I've seen Jeff Beck live twice... the first time was in Austin when he played with Jennifer Batten. An incredible talent and super nice guy it sounds like.
Check out this interview where he shows off his guitar collection up in his attic.. amazing!
I've seen Jeff perform probably more than anyone else. The first time was in Omaha, Ne. in 1975 at the old Music Hall. He was playing a Les Paul and he looked like the Guitar God he is up there on stage.
I was standing at the bar at BB King's in NYC in the '90s one night waiting for a show to begin and I think he came up and talked to somebody right next to me.
I think I saw Beck with the Yardbirds when I was a young teen. Believe it or not, the Yardbirds, Sam the Sham and Gerry Lewis and the Playboys had a joint traveling show that went to smaller markets. It was either Beck or Page but I wasn't really keeping up with band members back then.
I also saw Beck live in Jacksonville in 1999. It was a great show.
Imagine Beck in the Stones, "the three chord wonders" as he called them! He turned down them down. LOL. All that cash forfeited on behalf of his own artistry.
I used to call Jimmy Buffett "Jimmy 3-chord" just to needle a friend who loved him.
Michael Schenker was approached too. His brother Rudolph advised Michael in a most assertive manner to not go there!. The 'habits' of The 'Stones would have been the end of Michael and his then proclivity toward excess.
Rory Gallagher likewise turned them down, preferring to tread his own path.
I think for this, we should be glad.
Beck really is a virtuoso.
I love Jeff Beck, BUT I do not particularly like that "cricket" thing he does by depressing the vibrato arm and letting it go suddenly, giving a BRRRRRRRRR (rrrrrroll your R's now) to the note. I did that yesterday on my G&L S-500. Neato trick, just don't like the sound much.
