Wikipedia : This day (June 24, 1944), in Wallington, Surrey England, is born Geoffrey Arnold Beck a.k.a Jeff Beck, an English rock guitarist.
Jeff Beck : Beck worked as a session player, with Screaming Lord Sutch – the British equivalent to Screaming Jay Hawkins – and the Tridents before he replaced Eric Clapton as the Yardbirds’ lead guitarist in 1965.
@facebook : Constantly evolving Beck’s next move would be to form a power trio with bassist Tim Bogert and drummer Carmine Appice, which released “Beck, Bogert and Appice” (1973), once again shattering people’s preconceptions of what a rock guitarist was supposed to sound like.
@last.fm : While many of his contemporaries are satisfied with musical inertia, Beck continues to add to his legacy as an innovator with the release of his 14th album, simply titled “Jeff .”
