Jack: "We did the whole Yardbirds part of the show with him -- "You're a Better Man than I", "Heart Full of Soul", "Lost Woman", an instrumental "Train kept a-rollin'", "I Ain't Got You". Can you imagine? It was unbelievable. It was the most fantastic thing I have done. I really love that he is still that guy who just doesn't care about anything, who wants only to play guitar and nothing else. We would take cues from him and I stood and watched when he first plugged in his guitar. He played a chord and slashed his way with several overtones, and it was so awesome -- no effects pedal, just from the fingers, straight through the amplifier -- that effortless. I cannot quite grasp how it was done. I am a guitarist, but I don't get it."
The dates of the two Jeff Beck tribute shows are September 13th 2002 and September 14th 2003 and are available on bootlegs. There are some great performances on these from a slew of artists so if you get the opportunity grab these shows.
