Jeff Beck has been called "as innovative as Jimmy Page, as tasteful as Eric Clapton, and nearly as visionary as Jimi Hendrix" on his electric guitar. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee was born in Wallington, England, in 1944. As a young man, Jeff Beck built his own fretless guitar and admired musicians like Les Paul and Chuck Berry. In 1965, Beck replaced Eric Clapton as lead guitarist of famous English rock band The Yardbirds. During their Jeff Beck period, The Yardbirds produced classic rock songs such as "Shapes of Things" and "Heart Full of Soul."
After Jimmy Page became lead guitarist of The Yardbirds, Jeff Beck formed The Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart. The Jeff Beck Group released hard rock albums Truth and Beck-Ola, and hit songs "Definitely Maybe" and "Let Me Love You." In 1975, he released the instrumental albums Blow by Blow and Wired. The albums' jazz rock fusion style spawned songs like "Diamond Dust" and "Scatterbrain." After these two albums, Beck took a break from performing on tour to focus on his hot rod cars, but he eventually returned to the recording studio to produce classic albums such as You Had It Coming and songs such as "Behind the Veil."
An innovative artist, the music of Jeff Beck can be best described as a mix of blues, rock, jazz fusion, heavy metal, techno, and electronica. During his music career, Jeff Beck has won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. Many other legendary artists have performed with Jeff Beck on tour.
