Back in 2001 I did my first (and hopefully not last) interview with Jeff Beck, who I’ve long championed as the world’s greatest living rock guitarist.
At the time Beck’s touring band included American picker Jennifer Batten, who’d also played on his new album You Had It Coming, and written its pummeling opening track, “Earthquake”.
At one point in the interview I asked Jeff how he first came to work with Jen, and much raving about her talent and star power ensued.
