HMM...

This must have been the 8th time I’ve seen him since 1974. His guitar playing is always stellar, but not saying one word, even not introducing the band was plain sad. It was a short set, with Johnny Depp stepping up to play guitar? A bummer.... a weak encore also.

JEFF BECK WAS AMAZING, DEPP HOWEVER...

We went to see Jeff Beck in NY, as part of my business trip to the US. He was amazing and didn't disappoint. The way his fingers glided across the strings like butter and the way he interacted with the audience was amazing. He's an overall great musician who values the art of rock music and it shows. Which begs the question: Why would someone as talented as Beck drag Depp on stage? I don't care about the drama revolving Johnny Depp, I came for the music, hell I was even excited about seeing an actor I knew for years live. Well, until he started "playing" the guitar. He kept fiddling around with the guitar, only to celebrate himself for touching the strings a few seconds. It felt like he was "freestyling" the whole time, he didn't match the other guitarists at all. At one point he started "singing" (and he shouldn't!), he sounded awful... just awful. The audience didn't seem to like him either, people were mocking him, that was fun. Jeff Beck: 5 Stars Johny Depp: 0 Stars

DEPP WAS DRAGGED IN TO SELL TICKETS

The show was good until Jack Sparrow showed up. I thought he was a semi-competent guitar player (no more than that), and a terrible singer. I was really trying to listen to his "rhythm playing," but it sounded muffled, as if his amp had been turned down to prevent him from messing up Beck's playing. I understand why Beck did this, but I do not approve.

A LET DOWN.........

Unlike Brian Klein, my wife and I did not enjoy this concert. Whilst we both appreciate the fact that Jeff Beck is one of the top guitarists around, his actual show was a real let down. All the numbers were played on the same Fender Strat and seemed only different because of tempo. Not once did Mr Beck address the crowd during the main part of the show; not even a "good evening Phoenix" or a simple "thank you" for very generous applause after each number - in my opinion that is both arrogant and rude and totally uncalled for. The band were ok though I failed to see why the cello player was there at all and the choice of Jimmy Hall as vocalist was a sad one - I have Wet Willie albums and he was great back then but at this show he just screamed which is not what I call singing! The only pluses of the night were the location........my Wife was a regulat at the Celebrity in the 70's and loved being back there!......and the choice of Nils Lofgren as opening act-a truly class act.
