Yeah, thats off of 'Blow By Blow'. Check out Richard Baileys drumming on 'BBB' and the album 'Wired'. He's a monster.

I first became aware of Jeff Beck back in 75 & he is one of the greatest rock guitarist of all time.  I think he's slighly overshadowed by comparison next to Hendrix, Clapton & Page.

A very respected guitarist. I got this off of IMDB. Don't know how informative it is!

Jeff Beck was born in Surrey in 1944. He grew up in a surburban street in Carshalton. When he was about 10 he wanted to play the guitar. His mum, however, wanted him to play the piano because she didn't approve of the guitar. When he was in his late teens he joined the Tridents on lead guitar. In 1965 he replaced Eric Clapton in the 'Yardbirds' . He played with them until 1967 when he decided he'd had enough and wanted to go solo. In the same year he released his first solo effort "Hi-Ho-Slver lining" which was the only one of his tracks he ever sang on. In his backing group he had Rod Stewart and Ron Wood who later went on to form the 'Faces' . Thoughout the rest of the 60s and 70s he continued to record instrumental albums. In 1983 himself, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page got together to do one-off charity concerts. In 1984 he contributed lead guitar on Mick Jagger's first solo album "She's the Boss". The same year he released his next album "Flash" which was voted best instrumental album. In 1989 he released the album "Jeff Beck's guitar shop" which was also a big success. Throughout the 90s Jeff Beck still touried around and in 1998 played a sellout date in Mexico. In early 2001 he released yet another album "You had it coming" which he toured to promote.

jeff beck happens to be my favorite guitarist , but he does seem to be overshadowed quite often.
 perhaps it's the fact that his work does not necessarily correspond with the time period in which he made many of his works, similar to the velvet underground who i happen to like as well.

however, he was the most productive of the yardbirds and was their guitarist when they were on the top of the world. you just got to love the beginning of heart full of soul. i mean, riffs are great, but he takes guitars to a whole new level.
