Jeff Beck In-depth Biography

While he was as innovative as Jimmy Page}, as tasteful as Eric Clapton} and nearly as visionary as Jimi Hendrix}, Jeff Beck} never achieved the same commercial success as any of his contemporaries, primarily because of the haphazard way he approached his career. After Rod Stewart} left the Jeff Beck Group}, Beck} never worked with a charismatic lead singer who could have helped sell his music to a wide audience. Furthermore, he was simply too idiosyncratic, moving from heavy metal to jazz-fusion within a blink of an eye. All the while, Beck} retained the respect of fellow guitarists, who found his reclusiveness all the more alluring.

Jeff Beck} began his musical career as the Yardbirds'} lead guitarist, following the departure of Eric Clapton}. He stayed with the band for nearly two years, then formed the Jeff Beck Group} in 1967 with a lineup including vocalist Rod Stewart} and bassist Ron Wood}. With their crushingly loud reworkings of blues songs and vocal/guitar interplay, 1968's Truth} and 1969's Beck-Ola} became early templates for heavy metal. After Stewart} and Wood} left to join the Faces} in 1970, Beck} recorded two more albums with a new version of the group before releasing a lone LP as the head of a power trio including former Vanilla Fudge} members Tim Bogert} (bass) and Carmine Appice} (drums). He moved from hard rock to jazz-rock with 1975's Blow by Blow} and 1976's Wired}, but recorded only three studio albums during the next 15 years. (One of which, the slick 1985 LP Flash}, featured Beck's} only hit single, "People Get Ready.") In 1993, he recorded the Gene Vincent} tribute Crazy Legs}, but then remained quiet for over five years before resurfacing in 1999 with Who Else!} ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide
