“The Warner Music family is devastated to hear the news of Jeff Beck’s passing. He was undisputedly one of the most gifted and influential guitarists of all time. Across an incredible sixty years in music, Jeff was a true pioneer, with an unparalleled legacy as a fearless artist of profound talent and creativity. We welcomed Jeff to the Warner Music family in 2010 with his beautiful Emotion & Commotion album, which went on to win two Grammys. Several other studio and live masterpieces have followed in the years since, from his stunning Live At The Hollywood Bowl to last year’s brilliant 18. I had the pleasure of sharing several special moments with Jeff and was always in awe of the passion and humility he would demonstrate as he shared his latest work with us for the first time.  Our deepest condolences go out to his wife Sandra, and the rest of his family, friends, and bandmates, along with his multitudes of fans around the world. Rest In Peace, Jeff.”
