  Hot Wired Guitar: The Life Of Jeff Beck
   Author Martin Power has just released a biography of one of my all time favorites.The book covers everything from his childhood through his 2010 album Emotion and Commotion. The author managed to interview lots of current and former Beck musicians,including Jim McCarty and Chris Dreja from the Yardbirds. Powers has done a few rock biographies,including Queen and Aerosmith.

Beck has never cranked out albums very fast but on the heels of "Live at Ronnie Scott's",this is a veritable outpouring for him.If you missed Emotion and Commotion by all means,check it out:

If you're a total fanatic,you can get the Japanese import,with two extra songs:
