RIP Jeff Beck

Damn I'm stunned.  One guy I was committed to seeing if he ever came back to Denver.  Huge loss.😪


Jeff Beck was such an amazing guitarist and his influence will continue to ripple throughout the world of music for many years to come.

I’ve worn through many copies of his work over the years and still listen to it frequently to this day. I’m thankful that I was able to see him perform live and will always appreciate the gift he shared with us all.

I recently read a comment from Jeff Beck that Strats were hard to play, which they sort of are compared to a Les Paul or anything with a shorter scale. He thought a more difficult guitar made you work harder. 

I didn’t grow up on Jeff Beck, but I always knew him as the guitar players’ kind of guitar player. The tributes from all the legendary players pouring in certainly seems to prove it. When I got back into vinyl in ’19 I grabbed a couple of his albums, used, at my local shop and suddenly had to buy a few more. I’m now a huge "new" fan and am stunned.

A legendary talent has been lost. His legend and recordings live forever wherever people have ears. :)

I have a real soft spot for the Jeff Beck Group cover of "Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You". RIP
