The world of rock is mourning the death of its legend.

Jeff Beck, the British guitarist who has previously been a member of Yardbirds, passed away on January 10. The news was confronted by the legend’s Instagram post shared on Jan. 11.

The Instagram message reads, “On behalf of his family, it is with sadness that we share the news of Jeff Beck’s passing. After suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis, he peacefully passed away yesterday.”

The death of the 78-year-old guitarist garnered a storm of tribute statements in the comment section.
However, the words of Rod Stewart, who was the vocalist of the Jeff Beck Group, which the late guitarist formed after parting ways with Yardbirds, had highlighted the most.

Rod wrote, “Jeff Beck was on another planet. He took me and Ronnie Wood to the USA in the late 60s in his band the Jeff Beck Group and we haven’t looked back since.”

He also reflected on his abilities of Jeff as a musician and applauded him by quoting, “He was one of the few guitarists that when playing live would actually listen to me sing and respond.”

Rod continued by thanking him. “Jeff, you were the greatest, my man. Thank you for everything.”

Recently, Jeff collaborated with Johnny Deep in his studio album 18, released in July.

The news of the album broke the internet during Jeff’s June performance in Gateshead, England.

The pair had performed together numerous times last year and shared a really strong bond.

Moreover, Jeff shared a glimpse of his onstage relationship with Johnny in The Guardian saying, ” I met this guy five years ago and we’ve never stopped laughing since. We actually made an album. I don’t know how it happened.”
