Has he been considered by the Band Admissions Team in terms of inclusion? If so then what's the verdict?
I've got two of his albums - "Blow by Blow" and "Wired" - and there's really nice fusion on them IMO.

So, has the discussion taken place already? And what's the result? I see he hasn't been added yet. Has he been refused?

I remember suggesting Jeff Beck back in 2005, and he got refused. Then again, it's nearly two years later so maybe he'll get accepted this time.

His fusion should warrant inclusion. Even his newer stuff has some prog elements. The guy is just amazing. Although, I won't be heartbroken if he doesn't get in. This is a borderline case.

He is very good, but for me he fits in the cathegory of "great music not prog", in spite of their fusion efforts.

I think he's ventured far enough into prog territory to be considered as belonging to this fraternity.  He definitely pushed the envelope and there's hardly a progressive guitarist that hasn't been influenced by his nonconformity.

A new thread was opened yesterday on the same subject, and this one isn't even two weeks oldUnhappy.... Therefore, I'll bump this one and close the other.

I was in on the 2005 discussions and we did not have Prog Related at the time if we had JB would have gone in. 
 
 I can't see why now after so many other inclusions that produced far less prog related moments than Jeff Beck (Jimmy Page comes to mind) that we can't just put him in now  as prog related.

I think it would make very much sense to add him as prog related.

If it has to be PR, then the Admin team will have their say on the matter. Personally, I am in favour of his addition, even if I only know his seminal albums "Blow by Blow" and "Wired".

It seems as if there is a fair amount of support. Prog Related would suit him well. He even had some proto moments in his early stuff.

Raffaella, I started this thread on 01 September 2006 so it's over seven months old.

Thumbs%20Up I support Jeff Beck's inclusion, alongside fusion artists such as Al DiMeola, RTF, Mahavishnu Orchestra, etc.
 
 
"Prog" to you or not, fusion is here, and that's where JB has belonged since the release of Blow By Blow.Stern%20Smile
 
 
Bela Fleck next -- a fusion of Jazz rock and bluegrass.
 
 
(BTW, when I say "fusion," I of course mean "jazz fusion." Much as with the short form "prog," for progressive rock, we commonly just called jazz fusion "fusion," when I was a young fella.)
