REACTIONS TO THE DEATH OF GUITAR VIRTUOSO JEFF BECK
“The six stringed Warrior is no longer here for us to admire the spell he could weave around our mortal emotions. Jeff could channel music from the ethereal. His technique unique. His imaginations apparently limitless. Jeff I will miss you along with your millions of fans.” – Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, who was also a Yardbirds bandmate and close friend of Beck, via Instagram.
“Jeff was such a nice person and an outstanding iconic, genius guitar player, there will never be another Jeff Beck. His playing was very special & distinctively brilliant!” – Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi on Twitter.
“I’m heartbroken he looked in fine shape to me. Playing great he was in great shape. I’m shocked and bewildered…. He was a good friend and a great guitar player.” – Kinks guitarist Dave Davies, via Twitter.
