Classic Rock – March 2023
English | 109 pages | pdf | 109.62 MB

This one threw all of us at Classic Rock Magazine for a loop. I’m referring, of course, to the sudden, unexpected loss of Jeff Beck. I still don’t quite believe it. Many of my favourite memories of Jeff revolve around the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour.
We managed to tempt him into attending one of our bashes in the early days, and from then on he became something of a stalwart of the occasion, whether he was winning or presenting an award or not. He just simply enjoyed coming along and spending an evening in the company of his friends and peers. And, of course, we absolutely loved having him there.
One year he played a blinding set at the Roundhouse for us (with guests Chrissie Hynde and Joss Stone), another time he headlined the Tokyo Superjam when Classic Rock took the Awards ceremony to Japan… And this is all without even mentioning that the lovely guy was also an architect of rock and the guitar hero’s guitar hero, lauded by many as the greatest ever.
Rest in peace, Jeff. We’re going to miss you terribly.
