The last stand? If this is it (as rumours suggest) and they‘re calling time on the NY&CH adventure then it’s a genuinely fitting eulogy; one borne out of a new found sobriety (Young stopped smoking pot a couple of years back, after an adulthood spent in its mist. I wondered if his playing was a product of his drug use? The answer- a resounding NO!), but more importantly, this is a celebration of the connection between the four players on stage and their audience. Perhaps the tour being titled ‘Alchemy’ is the magic they conjure together?

Jeff Beck ZANI 1

Geoffrey Arnold Beck was born in 1944, in Wallington, England. From the age of 10 he sang in the local church choir and as a teenager learned to play the guitar. Jeff like many other UK kids became fascinated with making guitars as well as playing them. In post war England the electric guitar was a rare commodity because import restrictions from the US prevented them from general sale. The UK guitarists keen on the sound were left to build their own.
