Wood, who joined the Rolling Stones after playing with the Jeff Beck Group, said: “Now Jeff is gone, I feel like one of my brothers has left this world and I will miss him dearly. My condolences to Sandra, his family and everyone who loved him.”
Beck has played guitar with singers as diverse as Luciano Pavarotti, Macy Gray, Chrissie Hynde, Joss Stone, Imelda May, Cyndi Lauper, Wynonna Judd, Buddy Guy and Johnny Depp. He made two records with Stewart in 1968 truth and 1969s Beck Ola – and one with a 64-piece orchestra, Emotions & Excitement.
A perfectionist, he preferred to make critically acclaimed instrumental records and largely left the limelight to devote his time to classic car restoration.
Kiss frontman Gene Simmons said, “Nobody played guitar like Jeff. Please grab the first two Jeff Beck Group albums and see greatness. REST IN PEACE.”
