Jeff Beck was an extremely talented guitarist, who having playing with several less auspicious bands joined The Yardbirds replacing Eric Clapton in 1965. Unfortunately, his experience with The Yardbirds was marred by paranoia and eventually he walked out of the band during a tour of America. Jimmy Page by this time had joined the group as an additional guitarist. Mickey Most took over the management of Jeff Beck and he continued to work with major bands eventually forming The Jeff Beck Group. Interestingly, prior to forming the group he recorded a single “Hi Ho Silver Lining” which is still a party favourite even today.
Despite his reputation as an extremely accomplished guitarist, Jeff Beck never really achieved the sort of success that might have been expected from someone of his talents. Jeff Beck is still touring today.
