Top Quotes of Jeff Beck: “I try to become a singer. The guitar has always been abused with distortion units and funny sorts of effects, but when you don’t do that and just let the genuine sound come through, there’s a whole magic there.” Jeff Beck


“I cherish my privacy, and woe betide anyone who tries to interfere with that.”  – Jeff Beck


“Some are skeptical. My mom thought the guitar was going to fizzle out in two weeks, that it was just a fad-and that was in 1958.” – Jeff Beck


“Yes, it’s in my left ear. It’s excruciating… I mean, it’s the worst thing ’cause it’s not… It never… It does go away – it’s not true to say that it doesn’t but, uhh… It doesn’t… The doctors say it won’t… It isn’t actually going away – you’ve just gotta suppress… They try to come to terms with what it actually… Why some people fear it – that’s the psychology behind it. They know it’s there but why is it such a horrible sound? Well, you can say why is a guy scratching at a window with his nails such a horrible sound – I couldn’t put up with that! This is worse!” – Jeff Beck

Top 25 Quotes of Jeff Beck


“At the end of the day, there are a hell of a lot of notes being played out there and I defy the average middle-American or the average punter to differentiate between them.” – Jeff Beck


“I do hear snippets on the radio. I do hear a little bit of me, sometimes great chunks of me. But I have to take that as a compliment; there’s no way you can get sour grapes about that.
