What Mama Said

Jeff Beck Group 1999 live in Tokyo. I really believe that Beck has done more to promote the status of brilliant women in rock over the last 25 years than any other man. He worked and composed with the techno guitarist Jennifer Batten for almost 5 years. She became his alter ego. They played some incredibly brilliant music together. I am transfixed by Becks technique. He really seems to have formed a symbiotic relationship with his instrument. The sickest, sweetest, most evocatively human instrumental voice I can think of. Yet he has been in the for front of the use of the sonic tools since 1965. I'm painting furniture tonight and this is the sound track...full blast!
