    Jeff Beck Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story - Jeff Beck

    New York, NY (April 5, 2018)– Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story documents the history of a musical maverick and true innovator, delving below the surface to shed light on the circumstances, inspiration and technicality behind the man and his music. The film features extensive interviews with Jeff both at home and in his workshop, as well as interviews with Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, David Gilmour, Ronnie Wood, Slash, Jan Hammer, Joe Perry, Beth Hart & many more.

    Beck’s childhood saw him surrounded by music; from the endlessly playing radio, to his homemade guitar and the countless hours he spent poring over records and playing music with his friend, Jimmy Page. “I didn’t have to think about taking up guitar, I just wanted to pour my feelings into it” said Jeff. Around the same time his love of classic cars was ignited from watching American B-movies featuring hot rods, and his two great passions in life were born.

    At that time, visiting America seemed like an impossible dream for the young man from Surrey, but joining the Yardbirds spawned Beck’s first trip Stateside. A paycheck from the 1968 film, Blow Up saw him to splash out on a split window ’68 Corvette – a warm memory that clearly still delights him to this day.

    Covering the Jeff Beck Group’s seminal 1968 Truth album featuring Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood right through to Jeff Beck’s Guitar Shop album (1989) – from experimental rock departures to powerfully dirty, heavy grooves and everything in between, Jeff will always create a singularly unique guitar sound.

    Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story reveals the true story of the guitar player who builds hot rods and captures the excitement and anecdotes of those who have worked alongside him. Jeff Beck has always been a risk taker, on an endless quest for fresh and challenging new sounds. Bending notes and filtering a myriad of musical inspirations, he will continue to inspire fans and musicians alike by giving voice to his guitar in the most unexpected ways.

    In other Jeff Beck news, his acclaimed Live At The Hollywood Bowl performance, released last year on multiple video and audio formats, will be available for the first time as a standalone 2-CD set and as a 180-gram 2-LP set on April 6 and May 25, respectively, from Rhino.

    Additionally, this summer, Jeff Beck will be joined by Paul Rodgers and Ann Wilson of Heart on the “Stars Align Tour.” The outing kicks off July 18 through August 26th with several Jeff Beck headlining dates as well. Check http://jeffbeck.com for the full itinerary and ticket information.

    Jeff Beck is a 8 time Grammy Award winner, featured in Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and recipient of the British Academy’s Ivor Norvello Award. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – twice.

    I second that.

    Makes it sound like it stops after Guitar Shop ? :shrug:
     
  8. Not to be Mr. Pedantic, but Blow Up came out in 1966, and Corvettes only had the split rear window in 1963. I hope the documentary is more accurate than that press release.

    They should’ve done an extended cut for DVD/Bluray, at least included bonus interviews!

    When they didn't arrive at FLASH (1985) and spend some time on it -- not a word about "People Get Ready" ! -- I thought "okay, here's where they start skipping stuff to get to the end" .......... Nothing about the Big Town Playboys ... no time really on his techno-trilogy/Jennifer Batten period , with the exception of "Nadia"........

    Absent voices that I would've liked to have heard from include Chris Dreja, Jim McCarty, Carmine Appice, Max Middleton, Tim Bogert, Narada Michael-Walden, Simon Phillips, Nile Rodgers, Tony Hymas, Terry Bozzio, Roger Waters, Steve Alexander, Randy Hope-Taylor, Jason Rebello, Imelda May ......
    you know, all of them ! Really, this should've been a three-hour documentary .... Still, I'm grateful though.

    Yes, you probably should get it !

    I can't tell you about A Man For All Seasons. I too am interested, but some negative reviews on amazon cooled me off .... still wondering though.

    This was shown on U.K. TV a few weeks ago. It’s very good, recommended to even a casual fan.

    Yes very little footage exists 67-69 but there is Bill Graham Fillmore stuff but no live sound on any clips i have seen. Aside from this there is the Beckola studio footage and some promo clip for Tallyman exists, as a portion was shown when Jimmy Page inducted Beck into the Hall Of Fame.

    Why does this thing end at 1989?

    He was just getting warmed up by then.

    Fail.

    The version that was shown on UK TV didn't stop at 1989, it went up to date with "Loud Hailer" era.

    Heh! Jeff himself would be the first to react to that mistake.

    Well, which is it? It's 110 minutes, give or take, and if that's what it is, it easily could have been an hour longer. Jeff's career deserves it.

    Maybe the problem with a complete overview is that Beck continues to create milestones. More than half a century since he first showed up. And it looks like he will continue to do so right up to the bitter end.

    Lucky us.
