Jeff Beck: Live At The Hollywood Bowl.

 Betyg

Review4576_jeff_beck

This gig at The Hollywood Bowl back in August 2016, caught Jeff celebrating 50 years of him making music. And he was not alone.
The set-list is fairly predictable and starts with ‘The Revolution Will Be Televised’ from Beck’s latest studio album and accompanied with a dishevelled looking Rosie Bones.
“For Your Love with” the Yardbirds classic gets the crowd moving, However It is the mid-seventies to mid-eighties material that really stands out – ‘Freeway Jam’ and ‘You Never Know’ with keyboardist Jan Hammer reminding us that this was the decade when Beck was releasing his most well-loved stuff.
Becks pays his dues to the blues with ‘I’d Rather Go Blind’ with guest vocalist Beth Hart. It all seems a bit lack lustre early on, however things certainly pick up when a certain bearded guitarist show up to play Rough Boy, hardly a rocking song though. I think this is a great track, but was a poor choice.
Indeed it takes a very animated Steven Tyler singing "Train Kept A-Rolling" to really get the concert, and the crowd going.
The whole ensemble is back on stage for the final track, ‘Purple Rain, a fitting tribute to Prince who had passed away a couple of months before this concert.
No doubt this will receive rave reviews from Becks fans, and while I agree it is good, it could have been so much better.
I will say this though, at 73, Jeff Beck’s playing is exceptional, and I believe only one man today comes anywhere close, and that is Joe Bonamassa.
