Jeff Beck 1944 - 2023 part 1
There are certain artists we encounter during our time on the planet that have a unique and unmistakable glow. While their work and skills are exemplary it goes beyond their talent and into what I would call special magic. Jeff Beck was magic. He showed this unique ability to make sounds with a guitar that he alone could do, it was part of him. An extension of his instrument, and while he did use some gadgetry, he didn’t need it or rely on it. His hands were either working on a car or a guitar, and this was not a tinkerer. He dug in to find where the magic was, and while what I know about cars could fit on the end of a pin, musically speaking, Jeff always delivered magic. He has been the greatest guitar player on the planet since Jimi left in 1970 and is simply irreplaceable. There will never be another in my lifetime.
