Jeff Beck (far right)
Jeff Beck, is one of the most legendary and influential guitarists on Earth. Although he is less well-known than his early famous band-members and fellow guitar legends Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. The fact that he has less fan-fare has allowed him to experiment more and in my mind create some of the most mind blowing guitar sounds ever.
Why I love him - I play guitar and listening to someone with such an abstract mind is so fun for me. He has the ability to create amazing sounds.
