Jeff Beck Honoured at Classic Rock Awards
On Friday 11th November, Jeff Beck took centre stage at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour. In recognition of his ground-breaking career, Classic Rock magazine readers voted for Beck to receive the evening's highest accolade, The Icon award. Friends since childhood, fellow guitar legend Jimmy Page was on hand for the presentation.
'I usually went to visit Jim because he had the equipment. He had a wicked collection of about 400 albums, whereas I only had about four. The blues kept us going.' - Jeff Beck in BECK01
This year's ceremony was held in Japan for the first time ever, at the Ryoku Kokugikan Stadium in Tokyo, where copies of Jeff's new career-charting Genesis book were on display. To secure your copy of Jeff's signed limited edition, visit www.JeffBeckBook.com.
