One of the most inventive and influential guitarists of this or any other age, ex-Yardbird Jeff Beck was a contemporary and 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 rockabilly.

Hot Wired Guitar - The Life Of Jeff Back explores the fascinating life of Beck, using new and exclusive interviews with some of his closest collaborators to tell the real story of the Guitar legend.

Complete with 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 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”.

'A fulsome chronicle of one of the UK’s best musicians’ development... full of admirable gumshoe work by the writer.'- Record Collector
