I have earlier emphasized that my opinions about new additions are influenced by the fact that many doubtful bands (subjective, I agree) like Talk Talk, Max Webster, Triumph, ELO, etc. are added so in my opinion Jeff Beck deserves it too because his outstanding albums Wired and There And Back. I am looking forward to review these albums on this site!

no doubt - first time I saw that video it instantly put the albums in perspective for me.

Jeff Beck is my favorite guitarist.

I watched the video, it does make one see it in a completely different light, seems much more interesting! And he doesn´t use a plectrum at all!!

it is hard to get into his techno-esque stuff at first.

However once you figure out that all those sounds are being made by a live band, and can be played live off the floor.

Here is a video - http://youtube.com/watch?v=wHaRAfxLd7g&search=jeff%20beck

I heard some of his techno albums first, and turned it off immediately - then I saw videos like the one above, and those albums are actually really fun listens now. Smile

He's a quintessential "multi-genre" artist, though -- difficult to categorize, IMO.

I agree whole-heartedly. If having a catalog that's not exclusively prog disqualifies candidacy, how is Genesis here? (Not saying this to be incendiary, just making an observation)

that would have been awesome - Johnny Winter is another one of my favorite guitarists Smile

No doubt, I can't wait till I finally get another chance to see him - his playing is mind-boggling Smile

Hey Crazy Chester....don't forget Beck's Bolero from Truth. I would say that it's very progressive considering the time frame. Cool moniker by the way.


thanks Smile

no doubt, I love that whole album (got it on vinyl for my birthday a few months back).

Pretty much everything I have seen him do has captured me - much in the same way bands like Rush, Frank Zappa, and (recently) Genesis, and ELP have as well Smile
