Jeff Beck

Jeff Beck is widely regarded for his hit single, 'Hi Ho Silver Lining' but if you expect to hear him play this song in concert you will be sorely disappointed! Not only does he not perform this song but there are very few vocals in his performances, he doesn't sing at all and prefers to let his guitar do the singing.

Jeff Beck is probably the best guitarist in the world, alongside Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix of course and has been around since the mid-sixties, first playing with The Yardbirds, The Jeff Beck Group (of which Rod Stewart was vocalist) and then having a long solo career, performing his own tunes along with many covers, of which 'Nessun Dorma' from his latest album 'Emotion and Commotion' was the climax of the show last night.

This picture was taken with a compact camera and I was sat about 12 rows from the stage. When taking live music shots always turn the flash off as it kills the atmosphere stone dead with it on!
