Description

Hot Wired Guitar explores the fascinating life of Jeff Beck, using new and exclusive interviews with some of his closest collaborators to tell the real story of the Guitar legend. It's been quite a journey.

One of the most inventive and influential guitarists of this or any generation, ex-Yardbird Beck was a contemporary friend of Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. From the mid-sixties onwards he pushed the Electric Guitar to its limits - and beyond. On the way he helped change the face of rock music while experimenting with R&B, funk, jazz fusion and rockabily.

Author Martin Power has talked to former Yardbirds members Chris Dreja and Jim McCarty, as well as manager Simon Napier-Bell and fellow musicians including Max Middleton, Stanley Clarke, Simon Phillips, Jimmy Hall, Mo Foster, Doug Wimbish and many others. Supported by full album reviews, rare photographs and an up-to-date discography, Hot Wired Guitar is the most complete and comprehensive account of the life and times of Jeff Beck, the man who took the Electric Guitar and showed the world just what could be done with six strings and "one hell of an attitude".
