Joanne Shaw Taylor on Jeff Beck: “He was my favorite guitar player – he made the guitar a different instrument”

by GuitarDomain

“First things first – I’d say Jeff Beck is probably my favorite guitar player, and the reason for that is that there is just no one else like him. I should be talking in past tense, which I’m still not used to. I really was shocked by his death, as I think everyone was. He was in better shape than me when he was 78!

“I met Jeff through Carmen Vandenberg – who I say is like my little sister – and who obviously played with Jeff for a couple of years and was very, very close to him personally. I also opened for him a couple of times. He had quite an impact on me.
