In 2008, I was in a London park when I came across a fledgling crow that had fallen from the top of an oak tree. A woman happened to be passing, and she said that she rescued animals, so she invited me back to her house. It turned out she was the wife of Jeff Beck. Jeff was there, and we ended up jamming together.
Imelda May
I’ve always been a Jeff Beck fan. Who isn’t? He is in a league of his own.
Paul Rodgers
I decided early on that I wanted to be Michael Bloomfield, Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton – not George Harrison.
Todd Rundgren
I would say seeing the original Yardbirds with Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page at the old Fillmore was a pretty powerful influence on me.
Ronnie Montrose
As far as actual playing, Clapton – by far – is my biggest influence, and you can tuck Jeff Beck underneath that.
Joe Bonamassa
Every year that I go out on tour, I think about all the craziest ideas that would be great to go out with, and I think, ‘I should see if Jeff Beck wants to join my band for a month or something.’
Joe Satriani
‘Sing It Again Rod’ touches all the solo bases since Stewart’s departure from the Jeff Beck Band, wherein he cut his teeth on American audiences for $75 a week plus expenses, and wisely ignores his generally inferior work with the Faces.
Jon Landau
My guitar heroes are Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck and people like that – so I’ve tried to make an album of Robert Johnson covers that, well, while not totally faithful for blues purists, is faithful for people like me that grew up with the ’60s and the electric blues-rock versions of Johnson’s songs.
Todd Rundgren
Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck made me an Anglophile. I listened to English and Irish artists as a kid, and they were way louder, heavier, and faster than the traditional blues that I was listening to.
Joe Bonamassa
When we toured… I was hungry to take out people like Jeff Beck in front of us; Fleetwood Mac, just before they hit; Heart, just before they hit.
Paul Kantner
When I grew up, I had influences as diverse as Keith Richards, Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix.
Billy Squier
I was a kid that grew up listening to The Beatles and The Stones and Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, and I wanted all of that in there. But at the same time, a large part of my playing is Tony Iommi and Billy Gibbons. I’m just a sum total of all of the guitar players that I think were really cool.
Joe Satriani
I saw The Jeff Beck Group at the Marquee Club in 1967, when he was with Rod Stewart, and holy smokes, they were amazing.
Paul Rodgers
Jeff Beck is one of my heroes and has been since I first picked up a guitar.
Kirk Hammett
When I got out of high school, I was in a blues band. It was the kind of music I was interested in, and listening to, mostly because it was becoming a vehicle for a generation of guitarists – like Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton. Mike Bloomfield. And that’s what I wanted to be, principally: a guitar player.
Todd Rundgren
My personal favourite is Jeff Beck. All the others are wonderful as well.
Noel Redding
I always loved the Yardbirds when I was a kid, you know; I was always into Jeff Beck and everything.
