About this deal

Les invités le sont tout autant, Buddy Guy, Jan Hammer ou Billy Gibbons se montrent à la hauteur du maitre. Then it was off to the races, with Beck leading his ensemble through a rapid-fire half-dozen Yardbirds and Jeff Beck Group rockers. Of course, these were Jeff Beck‘s followers, many of whom had seen him live throughout the various phases of his classic rock career, from the Yardbirds to the days of the Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart, out on the Jan Hammer Highway and into the future with Beck’s 2016 album, Loud Hailer. Beck’s collaboration with the keyboardist was the cornerstone of his most creative period, and with this onstage reunion (“I am so thrilled to have the great Jan Hammer on keyboards,” Beck introduced), the faithful were satiated. The August 10, 2016 concert was billed as a career retrospective (“50 Years of Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy and Special Guests”) and for almost three hours, if you count Guy’s 45-minute cooker of an opening set, the potentially jaded Hollywood Bowl crowd was treated to a jaw-dropping display of deep blues, hot licks and dive-bombing Stratocaster forays into the ionosphere of rock.

Dipping into his career all the way back to The Yardbirds and the Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart through to more recent times.He’s also hugely respected by his peers, and is clearly and deeply committed to playing what he wants to play rather than chasing new markets.

Beck set the stage ablaze with incredible live versions of “For Your Love”, “Beck’s Bolero”, “Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers”, “Big Block”, “Over Under Sideways Down”, “A Day In The Life”, “Blue Wind”, and more.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I have 4 other people's versions of 'I'd Rather Go Blind' in my collection, all of them good, but Beth can trawl those emotions up from deep inside herself and slap you in the face with them that bit better. Gibbons, Jan Hammer, Beth Hart, Jimmy Hall and Buddy Guy and concluded with a group encore of "Purple Rain" in honor of Prince.

A musician of principle no less, and a true guitar legend who lets his Stratocaster do the talking - there’s no dad dancing or other embarrassing attempts to try to convince us he’s a 18 year old rebel. The author of articles and books on the music of Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa and Albert King, among others, his latest project is the forthcoming book, Hendrix Now!As the evening progressed he was joined by many of the great musicians he has collaborated with over the years including Billy F. My favourite songs from this set are the ones featuring Steve Tyler, Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons and Beth Hart. Rosie Bones, the Cockney crooner of Beck’s latest studio configuration, got the crowd in the mood by stalking through it with a flashing-light-festooned movie camera, then hopping up on the stage’s front skirt to pump out Loud Hailer’s “The Revolution Will Be Televised. The show climaxed with the guests all joining forces for an exhilarating encore performance of "Purple Rain" in tribute to Prince, who had passed away a couple of months before the concert.
