Robert Plant Pays Tribute to Jeff Beck: “He cooked up magic through all the passing eras” – 2023
Robert Plant: This is tragic news..
Hard to take in..
Jeff always appeared timeless, ever evolving ..
He embraced project after project with limitless energy and enthusiasm..
He surfaced in an extraordinary time..he took his place side by side with the virtuosos of the period .. his mates ..
The scene was on fire, he introduced a cool template moving from Yardbird to Bolero to Truth, Beck Ola with Rod the perfect foil…the singer and guitarist syndrome..plenty of sparks…great results…
He cooked up magic through all the passing eras, always up for the next, unknown, unlikely collision, back in time to homage Cliff Gallup, forward to Johnny Depp.
His gift was enormous. He was funny, challenging and eager
My feelings are with Sandra today..
On behalf of his family, it is with deep and profound sadness that we share the news of Jeff Beck’s passing. After suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis, he peacefully passed away yesterday. His family ask for privacy while they process this tremendous loss. pic.twitter.com/4dvt5aGzlv
