Can't find what station he's on.Watching Albert King And Stevie Ray Vaughn

Play right now but no sign of Beck.

They might repeat it again, but the Beck concert was on before Stevie Ray. Strange that Jeff played a Strat first, but then picked up a Les Paul. Note that this is not with his band, but with Brian Setzer and other musicians.

Your dad has good taste!


I also have been fortunate enough to see him live a couple of times as well as other great guitarist of this era and can honestly say there is no one better.

TRIBUTE CONCERT OUT ON DVD FEB. 22; TOUR STARTS MARCH 24; SPECIAL AIRS NOV. 27


Jeff Beck paid fitting tribute to Les Paul last summer, celebrating what would have been the pioneering guitarist’s 95th birthday by playing his friend and mentor’s music, along with classic tunes from the era, in the same Times Square nightclub that Paul played every Monday for 14 years before his death in August 2009.


Sponsored by Gibson Guitar and billed as “A Celebration of Les Paul,” Beck was joined by The Imelda May Band at the Iridium Jazz Club in June 2010. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee mesmerized the star-studded audience with a tour de force performance of classics Paul recorded with Mary Ford, “How High The Moon,” “Vaya Con Dios” and “Mockin’ Bird Hill,” along with such rock and roll standards as “Twenty Flight Rock” and “Walking In The Sand.”


For those left off the guest list, Eagle Rock Entertainment and ATCO will offer this one of a kind performance to purchase. Rock and Roll Party to Honor Les Paul will be available on DVD and CD February 22. A PBS special of the event, Jeff Beck Honors Les Paul, is set to premiere on November 27 and air throughout December. Check local listings for times.


Following these releases, Beck will take the “Rock And Roll Party” on the road for a short U.S. tour. Beck will once again be backed by The Imelda May Band and its enchanting singer Imelda May, who joined Beck on stage at the 2010 Grammy® Awards for a spot-on rendition of Paul’s “How High The Moon.” Further details about tickets will be announced in the coming weeks.

A little off topic, but Claptons Crossroads guitar festival 2010 just came out on dvd and blu ray. Beck is featured on this version just like he was on the 2007. Nice that this concert is on blu ray. The 2007 version has some of the best sound I have heard on any dvd. Cannot wait to see this one.

Thanks for the heads up! I was fortunate to see him back in April at the Nokia theater.Great show especially with Dweezil Zappa opening the show. Jeff Beck is one of my favourite guitarists. Jeff Beck has a unique style that you can hear right away! Lodef and Vinny,and Randy, I think there will always be disagreement on who's the best player. I will always vote for Jimi Hendrix even thouh he's been dead for 40 years, he's still able to get on the billborard charts with a release. Jeff Beck has commented on Jimi before. The reason I vote him #1 is not that he (Jimi) was technically clean all of the time it was the fact that he brought the guitar out as an instument to the mass audiences worldwide. You have to remember this was England and Jeff Beck was around along with Eric Clapton. They even had a phone conversation about Jimi after he arrived in London. How many kids bought Stratocasters after hearing Hendrix play? To quote another un-named guitarist,"There are two types of guitarists those that have been influenced by Hendrix and those that refuse to admit it"!

I never saw Hendrix but everyone else I have. Jeff is the man to me. Don't know if JH would have sustained his skills through the years ( He was pretty F'd up ) but JB certainly has and really has lived a healthy lifestyle for a long time now unlike some of the others, could be the reason he still sounds so damn good.
