Jeff Beck at Royal Albert Hall

Overview

Originally famous for playing alongside Eric Clapton in The Yardbirds, Beck had previously been a session musician with Screaming Lord Sutch. After leaving The Yardbirds, he formed The Jeff Beck Group with singer Rod Stewart recording the groundbreaking albums Truth and Beck-Ola. During the early 1970s he played on a number of rock albums, before turning to instrumental jazz-fusion with records such as Blow By Blow and Wired. Critical and commercial success followed and he then 'semi-retired' to spend time with his other passion. Jeff Beck is a man almost as famous for his ability with a spanner as he is with a guitar, as alongside his musical career, goes a long interest in hot rods and other exotic cars, some of which have appeared on his albums. However, music retained its pull and Beck was eventually back in the recording studio and released There And Back in 1980. He was awarded a best Rock Instrumental Grammy for the song Escape in 1985. Beck's live UK appearances were relatively few and far between and it wasn't until 2004 that he toured here again. Later in 2007 he undertook a residency at London's legendary Ronnie Scott's Club, an event that was recorded and subsequently issued on DVD. A collaboration in 2010 reunited Beck with Eric Clapton for a series of sell-out concerts. An inspiration to many a guitarist, Jeff Beck and his trademark white Fender continue to find a silver lining in the field of instrumental rock.
