WTF he played on Bon Jovi?
I would have to think what the most famous song he played on is depends on what part of the world you are in. Chances are , for example, in Europe or Scandinavian countries it could well be that he is more known for his work with Jan Hammer.
The dude got around.
FF: 2:45 (great solo!!)
oh yeah, good stuff, sure I've seen seen this video, probably should have been in the actual film, always something with Beck (Woodstock) ... however, Pennebaker's final cut is fantastic hence loath to second-guess an undisputed master of the documentary .......
and hurdy gurdy man?
not Beck on that, but talk of possibly Page and/or Holdsworth (though it may have actually been Alan Parker). as far as i can see, The Jeff Beck Group only backed him on three songs ('Barabajagal', 'Trudi', and 'Stromberg Twins'). i always thought they might have played on 'Superlungs' and 'Snakeskin' from those sessions, but i guess not.
love these two, not sure exactly who played on these:
I’d go with Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers only because everyone emulates Jeff’s version - no one does Stevie Wonder’s.
But for overall exposure, the Bon Jovi track would be the one.
Jeff's biggest hit by a country mile is Hi Ho Silver Lining which went to number one in the UK iirc. Although the a-side was played a lot the b-side Becks Bolero was played more in juke boxes all over the UK and my house anyway. Because at the time it was classed as a "Pop" hit and in the wake of most of his peers at the time deriding the singles market as pop and the album market as serious Jeff refused to play it for many years but this because he thought he was a terrible singer and hated his voice not the guitar which is full on Beck. The b-side Becks Bolero is one he often played in concert over the years but of course that's an instrumental. Here they both are in the links below, have a listen.
I’ve never been a fan of the song “private dancer”....
Has to be his live appearance with Low Down Dirty Hound Dog...Smith.
Yes, for sure. It’s this song, by exponential light years over the other stuff mentioned here.
I don't think JB played on Stevie's version.
Sea Of Love
People Get Ready more well known among guitarists than civilians.
I hear Blaze of Glory on a radio station everyday in the DC area. Everyday.
It's odd that I've heard all 3 of these songs in the last 24 hours. I listened to Private Dancer with headphones on and was thinking about how much I liked the guitar parts.
Lot of MTV time...
Stevie didn’t have a version
This is what prompted Jeff’s version. Stevie wrote it for his wife. Jeff did play on some tracks on stevie’s Talking Book album
All about location and orientation (and age). I'd never even heard of Blaze of Glory until today.
In England I would think High Ho Silver Lining. In america its not so clear, but I heard Shapes Of Things by The Yardbirds over the muzak system at trader joes supermarket yesterday.
