My husband and I have been fans of Jeff Beck since the late 60's and we both saw him in concert several times during the 70's, both before and after we met. His music and musicianship are phenomenal.

My husband is a huge, passionate fan. Not only had he seen Jeff in concert many more times than me, he knows every album and track - in the way that I know Zep's albums.

The night that we saw Beck, Page, and Clapton on stage together at the ARMS concert was incredible - it was diminished only by how unwell Jimmy was during that period of time. Antoher highlight was seeing Jeff and SRV in concert together - that was probably a year or so after the ARMS concert.

We tried to get concerts to see Jeff when he played at a small venue in LA about two years ago but we were unsuccessful. It seems that he rarely comes to the U.S. which is very unfortunate. My husband would really love to see him play live again, at least one more time, and it seems that will require a trip to England.

Ufff... Jimmy, Eric and Jeff. And then Beck and Vaughan...

See those guys play together... That must be damn good...

They were all good but my favorite was the Blow By Blow tour in 75. Bernard Purdy on drums and Max Middleton on keys. Great band. I wish I could have seen him more recently but work commitments made it impossible

Also......Wilbur Bascomb played Bass

It was damn good. I remember not wanting to go to the ARMS concerts because I wanted to remember Jimmy as he was during the Zep years but my husband convinced me to go by saying something like, "We may never see these guys play together again...." So far, he's been proven right.

Eagle, there were may greats who I missed seeing: Jimi Hendrix, Duane Allman, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin. All of them died only a year or two before I started attending concerts.

It's not often that I wish I was a year or two older :D but getting to see those artists would have been good reason

I know what you mean - it's almost more painful because it was so close. In the case of Duane Allman, I seem to remember that they had played Fillmore East in the spring of '71 ( I remember older kids talking about the concert at school). I went to my first concert (LZ at MSG) in early September '71 and Duane was tragically killed, several weeks later, in October. :'(

Yep, so close but no cigar, Kinda like the end of the first era and the beginning of the next

Saw him with Stevie Ray, and also later with Johnny Lang where I sat front row. Two hours of Jeff with Jennifer Bratton, who we met backstage. The one thing I'll always remember about sitting so close was watching Jeff playing and banging with his thumb. I never saw a guitarist do that to the extent he does.

I might be mistaken but I think he came up with that after touring with Stanley Clarke. It does give a unique sound.

Most of his musical creations - and some of our favorites - are instrumental. Rod Stewart used to sing with Jeff as a member of the Jeff Beck Group. I've also heard Clapton and Carmine Appice doing vocals with Jeff but there were, at different times, other musicians, male and female (sorry, I don't remember their names) singing vocals.

Bob Tench sang on The Jeff Beck Group album which produced at least one memorable song called ' Going Down'. Cozy Powell on drums and Max Middleton on keys.

I've seen him a few times, mostly in Toronto but my favorite show was a couple years ago at hampton Beach Casino Ballroom in NH. It's a bar and very intimate and close. Great show.

Well Im try to find one, but I can't, so lets start this one.

Since last year, im founding all kind of great artits. I start with Led Zep, then ZZ Top, Eric Clapton (well I realy know him since the 90's with the Eric Clapton Unplugged), B.B. King (same case), Buddy Guy, Cream, The Yardbirds, Jethro Tull, etc....

Now I want to know Jeff Beck.

When I saw Crossroads 2007 Guitar Festival, I saw him for the first time. Jeff's daughter play the bass real nice.

So lets go and give me your opinion, and talk about him.

eagle87,try to find Jeff Beck's "Guitar Shop",it's worth it.

Thanks for that information, yahyoubetcha. :) You were fortunate to get those tickets for that small venue. Two years ago we tried but weren't successful - we'd still love to see Jeff again and a small venue would be especially nice.

Rough And Ready as well as The Jeff Beck Group albums were fantastic. Cozy Powell's sound was very cool. "Situation" off of Rough And Ready is one of my all-time favorite air guitar songs ;)

Happy 64th birthday Mr. Beck! Mr. Strat Cat.

Fox News just acknowledged Jeff's birthday showing some recent video of him ripping it up live. The news anchors thought it was old footage because Jeff looks so young. Keep eating those greens Beckola!

Is that who played with him at last year's Crossroads Festival?

She was excellent. And cute too. ;)

Yeah, she's not that old. About my age almost and yet she plays like she's been playing for 30 years. I think there is a possibility of an album, we just have to wait.
