Jeff Beck

Updated on February 24, 2015

Jeff Beck, guitarist extraortinaire!

As guitarist Bob Enik once put it to me: "Jeff Beck can do more with one note than some guys can do with an entire song."

I would only amend that to say "most guys".

You have to listen to understand. 

People always want to argue about who is "the best guitarist". Why bother? Styles of music alone make it a moot issue. But there isn't a great guitarist on the planet who doesn't respect Jeff Beck's ability.

Jeff Beck never ceases to amaze me!

I remember the previously unheard of things Jeff used to do with the Yardbirds and ever since the release of his first solo album "Truth" in 1967, if Jeff and I are in the same area and he's playing, I'm there, but it wasn't until I saw him from the fourth row center at Great Woods in Massachusetts on the tour for his 2003 album "Jeff" that I was able to see that he was playing mind blowing licks without the use of a guitar pick!

Author Martin Power has talked to former Yardbirds members Chris Dreja and Jim McCarty as well as manager Simon Napier-Bell and fellow musicians including Max Middleton, Stanley Clarke, Simon Phillips, Jimmy Hall, Mo Foster, Doug Wimbish and many others.

Supported to full album reviews, rare photographs and an up-to-date discography, Hot Wired Guitar is the most complete and comprehensive account of the life and times of Jeff Beck, the man who took the electric guitar and showed the world just what could be done with just six strings and "one hell of an attitude."

I've read it. IT'S GREAT!!!!!

      WOW. Two thumbs up. Great Jeff Beck lens. Excellent video choices. EBAY and Amazon stuff a fab idea. I just got back into guitars after digging up some of my old band pictures. I had a '69 Gibson EB-1 bass and '64 Thunderbird IV. Right now, I'm interested in Les Pauls and that's how I found your page. If you get a chance, please check out my
