JEFF BECK was born named Geoffrey Arnold Beck in East-Sussex, England
on 24 June 1944. He would have celebrated his 79th birthday.
He started his career with 60s blues beat band The Yardbirds (who also
had Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton in their changing line-ups). In 1967 he started
his own band The Jeff Beck Group originally with Rod Stewart as the singer and
Ronnie Wood on guitar. The JBG recorded 3 albums.
As a solo artist Beck released 11 LPs with Loud Hailer as his final
one, released in 2016. He also recorded with many other artists.
Awesome performance on the Letterman Show in 1999.
Unfortunately, Beck was passed away early this year on 10 January
following a bacterial meningitis infection.
