England’s favourite all-time flash guitar hero, Beck led the group bearing his name (the Jeff Beck Group), which was the nest for Ron Wood between Ronnie leaving the Birds and joining the Faces. Beck was also a serious contender in the Stones’ “Great Guitarists Hunt” after Mick Taylor’s departure, though rumor has always had it that Beck rejected the Stones, feeling that the rhythm section was not “funky” enough for his tastes. He did, however, record a few unreleased tracks in February 1975 with the Stones during the Rotterdam sessions. Later on, asked to participate in the New Barbarians tour in 1979, Beck uttered his favourite word, “No!”. Later on, Beck would record for Mick’s first two solo albums and other Stones-related assorted projects.
