Jeff beck turns 71 today, and I bet most guitarists would STILL not challenge him to a guitar duel !!   He's one of the all time greats, and The Stones and Pink Floyd both wanted him to join them at one point.  He was a little temperamental and a bit of a perfectionist.  He also dealt with inner-ear issues and headaches, and was once left temporarily "deaf" in one ear from a cymbal crash by Matt Sorum of Guns N' Roses.  But in spite of all those problems .... he's one of the most talented men to ever pick up a guitar!   Jeff Beck fans, today I salute you!
