Rod Stewart and Jimmy Page: Jeff Beck died on Wednesday. He was a rock pioneer and a great guitarist. “The six-stringed Warrior is no longer with us to make us wonder how he could make us feel like we were in a dream. Jeff was able to hear music from the spirit world.
His method is unique. He seems to have no limits to his creativity. Jeff, I and all of your other fans will miss you.” — Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, who played with Beck in the Yardbirds and is a close friend, on Instagram.
“Jeff Beck was a great person and one of the best guitarists in the world. When he died, we lost both. Everyone will miss him a lot.” Mick Jagger on Twitter.
“Jeff Beck was in another world. In the late 1960s, he took Ronnie Wood and me with his band, the Jeff Beck Group, to the United States. Since then, we haven’t looked back.
He was one of the few guitarists who would actually listen to me sing and respond while I was on stage.” Music is what Rod Stewart does.
