Just read about Jeff Beck in the news. I haven’t listened to much of his stuff but heard all about it. Can anyone recommend some iconic songs to listen to?

Another icon passes.
Like JK I have not been a listener to his recordings.
The one recommendation I would give is the album Amused To Death.
He was Roger Waters guitarist of choice on that album.

Same shoes here as JK and Richard although name is very familiar I haven’t crossed path with his music.

You probably have without realizing it. He played as a guest on a lot of other people’s records. Here are just a few examples:

Do check him out. He has for more influence on the music you love than you realize.
The “Best of Beck” album is a pretty good sample. There is also “Live at the Hollywood Bowl”. Albums worth listing to a few times.

BBC News is at this very moment eulogizing Jeff Beck, which is how I’ve just found out.

“I play the way I do because it allows me to come up with the sickest sounds possible. That’s the point now isn’t it?” - Jeff Beck

Sad loss, great musician and guitarist. Born mid 50s I’m slowly seeing all my teenage idol pass of this mortal coil. At least the music remains,
:cry:

Listened to it almost daily for many years from the age of 15 and actually since I started playing guitar consciously started again 3 years ago …sad sad news,… :cry:

:guitar:

Jeff Beck may not have been in a band that produced a song like Stairway to Heaven or Sunshine of your Love, so perhaps not as well known as Page or Clapton but as a guitar player he is pretty special.

Love this, a little different to some of his other work …
