    Us old dudes know Jeff's had plenty of hits, kicked off Rod's career, played with Carmine and Tim from the old Vanilla Fudge, almost became a Rolling Stone, hung with Stevie and so on. Man, its scary the random knowledge you accumulate once you've been dragging around this rock for awhile. But the Donny and Jeff show . . . classic.

    I got to see JB ages ago with the Jan Hammer Group - WOW.

    But the Tom & Jeff group was not one of his better pairings IMHO

    I'd never seen this video. Cool stuff. Funny, but cool.

    I learned more about playing lead guitar one summer from the Blow by Blow album than any other single thing in my guitar-playing career. (30+ years later I can still remember how to play 'Cause We've Ended as Lovers' pretty much note for note.) Jeff Beck is the man.

    Mine was the Jeff Beck Group album (the no-title one with the fruit on the cover). Had to start off with the slow ones and work my way up to Goin Down. The guy is one of a kind.

    Yeah, Scatterbrain was a good finger warmup. I'd imagine Goin' Down would be a lot the same. Great tune.

    One things that's always impressed me is how he has seemed to always be trying new styles and sounds, yet you could still recognize it was Jeff Beck. There are a lot of albums between Blow By Blow, and I've only heard bits and pieces of them, but I do have You Had It Coming (is that still his most recent?), and it rocks. (I also like the fact that Imogen Heap is on the record too.)

    Good thing this is in the OT section because we have wandered far from WWing. I listen to music of all kinds and everyday. I love digging up new artists and finding ones I missed. How did I skip over Imogen Heap? Thanks for mentioning her Vaughn. This little piece of performance art is just fantastic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSIbfzK2spg

    It's like suddenly finding Jill Yan and asking yourself "where did this guy come from". Or walking into a club on Pine Street in Long Beach and hearing a guy just tearing up a Dobro with Banjo picks duct taped to his fingers (Eric Sardinas) only to later discover him on a CD playing with Johnny Winter.

    Ain't music grand?

    P.s. Speaking of great guitar solos (and there are sooo many) check out Johnny Winter's solo on 'Cheap Tequila' off the 'Still Alive and Well' album. Got to be one of the most perfect examples of that style I have ever heard. Like Randy's solo on Crazy Train or Eric's solo on Crossroads; whenever I hear it, I stop what I'm doing and turn it up.

    Cool Imogen video, Glenn. Thanks. Of course one YouTube link leads to another.

    When I first hear this song, and literally had to pull my car over and start it from the beginning so I could listen to it more closely. I've seen her do a live version of this song, but the studio version is more impressive to me.
    I first discovered her by listening to RadioParadise.com. She was in a group called Frou Frou that caught my attention. Different style than most of what I listen to, but something caught my attention. Tina Dico is another singer that RadioParadise turned me on to.

    I'll have to track down the 'Cheap Tequila' solo.

    That's pretty cool. I've never heard of Imogen Heap.
    Two questions:
    Where have I been?
    Is that Uriah's daughter?

    Now you're dating yourself. What's next? Siddhartha quips?
