Hot Wired Guitar - Martin Power. As evidenced, the first decade of Jeff Beck’s life in post-war Wallington had been fairly emblematic of the time, a childhood populated with rare treats here and there, with several curiosities allowed to develop into abiding interests. It was quiet but comfortable enough, built on stumbling music lessons, model aircraft, pictures of hot rods and endless games of chess, another hobby that Jeff showed genuine interest in and a level of proficiency well beyond his years.

Martin Power does a fine job creating a road map to Jeff Beck's story from his childhood to about the beginning of 2014. It is well written, stays on point and guides you through the numerous Band personnel changes that were created to capture the moods of Jeff Beck. Great Discography, however it would have been nice to have an Index. I read this book concurrently with Crazy Fingers by Annette Carson, which I highly recommend as well. People pick this up expecting to get an extremely close description of Jeff Beck's long and extraordinary career, and that's exactly what this book provides. Beauty of diction is not one of the criteria-but I learned a lot I'd never known.

CHAPTER 16. Hammer Time. In a career already defined by several high-stakes ventures, Jeff Beck’s decision to reposition his talents in the jazz-rock/fusion market was his most audacious gamble yet. By his own admission, Beck was no jazzer, having come to that musical form via a solid, albeit extremely experimental blues, pop and rock background.
