Jeff beck - rock 'n' roll party: honouring les paul - Jeff Beck Ultimate Classic Rock

Another call and response riff, this time completed to a full 12 bar blues, is considered to be a standard in the way we play the blues today. It was written for Muddy by Willie Dixon and reached #8 on the Billboard charts back then, and has since received a Grammy Hall of Fame award.

A sense of outrage comes through loud and clear on the first single, “Live In The Dark,” as well as “Right Now,” which targets superficiality in pop culture. Beck adds: “I think Rosie says it all with the line, ‘Famously famous for nothing at all.’ Unfortunately, that’s where we are today.”

We’ve also included a clip of Beck showing off some of his guitar collection, including a 1954 Telecaster, a Strat gifted to him by John McLaughlin, an original Gretsch Rancher and a 1956 Gretsch Duo Jet. (Beck also shows his Gibson ES-175, though he refers to it as an L5.) The clip appears as bonus content on his 2011 Rock ’n’ Roll Party DVD.

The movie closely follows the 2010 Smithsonian exhibit, but also expands on it, making the connections between Native American traditions and the roots of popular music more obvious.

In March 1965, Beck was recruited by the Yardbirds to succeed Eric Clapton on the recommendation of fellow session musician Jimmy Page , who had been their initial choice. [16] The Yardbirds recorded most of their Top 40 hit songs during Beck's short but significant 20-month tenure with the band allowing him only one full album, which became known as Roger the Engineer (titled Over Under Sideways Down in the United States), released in 1966. Beck was actually pictured on the cover of For Your Love , which was released by the Yardbirds' American label in June 1965, though Clapton played guitar on most of the songs. From September to November 1966, Beck shared lead guitar duties in the Yardbirds with Page, who initially joined as bass player [16] in June that year. A clip of this iteration of the band can be seen in the 1966 British film Blow Up .

After the relative ease of getting the first two band members, finding a drummer was a nightmare. Beck went through Ray Cook, his former bandmate in The Tridents, the Pretty Things’ Viv Prince, ex-John Mayall drummer Mickey Waller (we’ll come back to him), Rod Coombes (later of The Strawbs), and another former Mayall graduate, Aynsley Dunbar. Although the last namedheld real promise, it resulted in yet another drum debacle. “I played with Jeff for four months,” Dunbar told me years ago. “I led his band in the end, that’s what happened. I was also looking after Jeff as far as that was concerned. So I felt, seeing as I’m doing that, I might as well be running my own band and making some cash, because we were on a paid wage routine with him.
