One thought on “Musicians react to death of Jeff Beck

  • It is unquestionably revealing that so many of the (remaining) greatest living guitarists express such tribute to Jeff Beck.

    Jeff Beck was revered by his fellow guitarists/peers, as well as his loyal fans, throughout his unbelievably productive lifetime as well.

    (In no particular order)
    Jeff Beck, Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter, Duane Allman, Roy Buchanan, B.B. King, Gary Moore, Jimi Hendrix, Alvin Lee, Frank Zappa, Jerry Garcia, Prince, Albert Collins, Hughie Thomasson, J. Geils, Randy Rhoads, Eddie Van Halen, Rod Price…to name a few.
    .
    The list of great guitarists/legends is getting shorter and shorter…..

    Rest In Piece, Jeff Beck – your distinct music, and instrumental style, will far outlive all of us – but thanking Providence that your work is preserved in our recorded media.

    You have always been, since “Truth” came out, been in my personal Top Five.
