Another guitar super-hero leaves us.........

R.I.P., Jeff Beck.

Besides being an absolute guitar wizard, he was a joy to photograph in performance.

These are two of my favorite shots of him. I took the GUITAR cover shot in 1980 at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic and the magazine came out in February, 1984. But my favorite shot of him (right) was taken at Bergen Community College in Paramus in 1976, where I was a faculty member at the time and had strongly advised the director of Student Activities - who was offered a choice of music acts by a booking agent ("Is this Beck guy any good?") - to book him.............QUICKLY!

While performing, he seemed to be posing for me like a bathing beauty. You don't get many moments in life like that (and so close to home).

He will REALLY be missed.
