LISTEN NOW: Rolling Stone Music Now: The Life and Music of Jeff Beck
This week, the Rolling Stone Music Now podcast pays tribute to late guitar god Jeff Beck with a super-sized episode featuring a never-before-heard interview with Beck himself by Rolling Stone's Kory Grow, plus new conversations with longtime Tom Petty guitarist Mike Campbell, guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, and Living Colour's Vernon Reid – plus an in-depth discussion of his career, with Andy Greene joining host Brian Hiatt.
"Jeff Beck was not just rough and rumble, he had a delicacy and a lyricism to his approach -- and he never stopped developing," says Living Colour's Reid. "He never stopped moving forward. People would say 'he's the greatest' -- but the thing is he was not hung up on his greatness. He was not really particularly hung up on his guitar... even though he loves it, obviously. But he was also a master restorer of antique cars... he's that kind of mind."
According to a statement passed on from Jeff Beck's family, the Yardbirds and solo guitar legend had contracted bacterial meningitis and passed away on Tuesday, January 10.
