Wrist Scan's memorial for Jeff Beck . . .
. . . starts now.
Jeff was one of the all-time bests. Got to see him perform once forty years ago; unforgettable. There's video footage of the encore performed with some of his pals.
As luck would have it we left early to beat traffic, so the once-in-a-lifetime chance of seeing Beck, Page, and Clapton playing together was missed.
Forty years passed, never to experience his magic again. And now, he's gone. Hard to believe, harder to accept.
Jeff was a maestro throughout his career - he apparently never lost his touch.
This concert footage is from ten years ago . . . every bit as brilliant a player as he was when I saw him in '83. One of the fondest memories of my life was seeing Jeff on stage with so many other greats - Eric, Jimmy, Ray, Charlie, Bill, Andy, Joe, and others. What I wouldn't give to relive that moment.
Please share your memories of Jeff and other favorite guitarists along with the watch on your wrist. I'm wearing my ca '53 Ω ref 2608 . . .
. . . today.
