Jeff Beck in recent years, doing what he does best.

"I was interested in the electric guitar even before I knew the difference between electric and acoustic. The electric guitar seemed to be a totally fascinating plank of wood with knobs and switches on it. I just had to have one."

Geoffrey Arnold "Jeff" Beck (born 24 June 1944) is a British musician that first made his name with the Blues Rock unit The Yardbirds, but over his fifty-year career has also put his stamp on jazz, soul, heavy metal, and electronica. Because he has succeeded almost entirely on his skill as a guitarist - never chasing pop trends and rarely either writing or singing - Beck has earned a paradoxical reputation as a "musician's musician" despite recurring problems working with other musicians.

Rolling Stone recognizes him as the fifth greatest guitarist of all time on their list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.
