JB's awesome. I think he'd make a great opener (co-headliner) with the ABB, and would bring in a different audience to the ABB and expand on their audience in the long run. A lot of guitarists out there who aren't into the band only think of the ABB from the early 1970's, and probably think the current version of the band is second rate or a tribute act to the original lineup. And just imagine DT and JB playing together.

If by jamming you mean listening to and enjoying as I dance around the house then "Yes!" Have loved Jeff since back in the Yardbird days. And he's still cooking - saw him live last about 5 years ago and he was smoking. His performance at the most recent EC Guitar Fest was sublime.

I agree, the performance at last years EC guitar fest was awesome. I bought the DVD a few weeks ago. And while it only has two songs from his set, it's outstanding. "Jeff Beck....Jeff Beck....JEFF BECK!!!! His Bass player is fantastic (and a little hottie!)...sweet girl who can lay it down...She's what, 18-19 years old? Cool that he gave her a nice solo during the show.

I'm actually playing along with them so I can play them with my band....but I do agree, just great listening as well I had the fortune of getting backstage on the 1989 Jeff Beck/Stevie Ray Vaughan tour in 1989 and was able to meet two of my biggest influences on guitar in person....beautiful people to say the least...JB builds a mean hotrod too!

22, actually. She's older than she looks. Great player though. I wish I'd seen her sit in with the ABB whenever that was.

In my opinion, Jeff Beck is the most interesting electric guitarist playing today. From breathtaking beauty and sweetness to outright meanass riffs to taking the electric to places most others never even dream of, he's the guy I follow the closest. I first saw him when he toured with SRV and they traded opening and closing slots. I went primarily to see Stevie Ray. I knew Beck was good but hadn't heard that much. Beck opened and completely blew my mind, rearranging my concept of electric guitar. Stevie Ray was from Texas but Beck was from Mars. And I absolutely love Stevie Ray to this day.

Can't believe I haven't read "Master of the Stratocaster" in this thread yet.

The only one I've seen live that I thought was better was Jimi Hendrix, then Beck, then Duane Allman. I was lucky enough to see all three.

Ya'll got me thinking about Jeff and so I went looking for something on the internet and found a fairly good interview where he's talking about Keith Moon and an album he did with Keith, here's the link:

http://www.ijamming.net/Moon/JeffBeck.html

Here's a good snippet of Jeff on Keith:

What people underestimated, he was the most incredible drummer. You canít even mimic him. Nobodyís been able to do it. Iíve watched and stood beside him and just gone Ďjesus!í Youíre asking me to recount a car crash. I could describe a car crash easier than I could describe his drumming. 'Anyway Anyhow Anywhere' .. Those drums. If you gave the Who just that inch of good material. There is no one who ever held a candle to them. Townshend, heís not a finicky fiddly tiddley guitar player like I was, and like Eric and Jimmy were -we were always a bit fairy arsed about it - he was orchestral and he was this windmill orchestra with a couple of howitzer cannons on the side. They were too good. They were highly intelligent. The veneer that they put out of this loony dangerous band was one thing, but when you got close to them....
