RIP Jeff Beck. I met him briefly in the early 80's, I worked for a High Performance Auto/Racing parts distributor. He was near by having a Rod built by Roy Brizio, I was floating around the warehouse when he walks back and asked for some empty boxes, I was like hey uh ..... you are Jeff Beck and we had a good laugh (very down to earth guy). He even stated in interviews at the time he considered himself more of a mechanic than a musician.
kuncklegary, I don't think Jimmy learned everything from Jeff, they were good friends from a young age and each had their own styles. Look for a cut album called Lord Sutch and Heavy friends, very interesting who was involved.
