Jeff Beck: Another exclusive in which Beck reveals his true colours

Jon Tiven, International Musician & Recording World, July 1975

JEFF BECK'S reputation as the world's greatest guitarist, the planet's most erratic musician, and the Universe's most elusive character precedes him. With a career full of brilliant rock albums behind him, Beck currently fronts a semi-rock/jazz four-piece which virtually defies categories but certainly doesn't strictly qualify as a rock outfit. Jon Tiven cornered Mr. Beck in Springfield, Massachusetts and popped the question: "Would you like to do an interview." "Not really, but go ahead anyhow" replied Jeff.

Total word count of piece: 2359
