A Rather Sad News! Mick Jagger is Devastated by This Loss

Mick Jagger breaks down in tears, saying, “We will all miss him so much.” At the age of 78, Jeff Beck, the man who revolutionized guitar music in the 1960s, passed away on Thursday. Members of his closest family broke the news of his unexpected death on Twitter.

The statement read, “On behalf of his family, we share the news of Jeff Beck’s passing with deep and profound sadness.” He died quietly yesterday after developing bacterial meningitis quite quickly. His family requests privacy as they deal with this tragic loss.

Beck, who is regarded as one of the best of all time, was instrumental in the important evolution of rock music and was always pushing the envelope.

Over the course of his five-decade career, Beck experimented with different sounds and methods, offering the music industry a novel perspective. After Eric Clapton left the Yardbirds in 1965, Beck joined them. He was only in the band for about two years, but it was during that time that he used criticism in a creative way, which had an impact on other well-known musicians.

Regarding that method, Beck stated to Johnnie Walker of BBC Radio 2 that “that [technique] came as an accident.”


We performed at bigger venues between 1964 and 1965, and the PA was insufficient. We so increased the difficulty and discovered that feedback would occur.

I began utilizing it because it was manageable and could be used to play music. I remember doing this with the Yardbirds at Staines Town Hall, and this man would say, ‘You know that strange noise that wasn’t meant to be there? If I were you, I’d hold onto that. I responded, “It was intentional, mate.” Move on.

Following his split from the Yardbirds, Beck released the song “Hi Ho Silver Lining” before launching the Jeff Beck Group in its original form at the beginning of 1967. Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood played bass in the quartet.


Both in 2009, as a solo artist, and in 1992, as a member of the Yardbirds, Beck was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Many of Beck’s friends and admirers were devastated by his departure, including rocker Mick Jagger, who paid tribute to the amazing artist. Jagger remembered requesting Beck for assistance with the lead guitar parts on his debut solo album, She’s the Boss, in 1985. The two were good pals.

On social media, Jagger posted, “We have lost a wonderful man and one of the best guitar players in the world.”

Jimmy Page, the Yardbirds’ replacement for Beck, also gave a moving tribute. “Jeff was able to access music from other levels thanks to his ability to channel. His methodology is distinct. I’m sure I speak for all of your many other fans when I say I’ll miss you terribly, Page wrote.


It is impossible to equal the impact and legacy that Beck left on music. I hope he finds peace.
