Jeff Beck

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.

A sold-out crowd filled the opulent Fred Kavli Theater in Thousand Oaks, California, on Saturday, November 5th, to witness the guitar wizardry of arguably the greatest living rock guitarist, Jeff Beck. It was the first post-pandemic tour for the iconic guitarist, who looks and sounds like a man decade younger than his 78 years. The musician has won six Grammy's for his masterful recordings and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice.

Jeff Beck found a kindred spirit in Johnny Depp when the two met in 2016. They bonded quickly over cars and guitars and spent most of their time together trying to make each other laugh. At the same time, Beck’s appreciation grew for Depp’s serious songwriting skills and his ear for music. That talent and their chemistry convinced Beck they should make an album together.
