RIP Jeff Beck

And Jeff Beck gave Jimmy Page his Fender Telecaster (the hand-painted “Dragon”), which Page played on Zeppelin’s first album, and the iconic lead on Stairway to Heaven.

Jeebus, the things I don’t know… I new about the New Yardbirds–>Zeppelin but I never knew this amazing bit of Spinal Tap trivia.

An excellent article on him restoring it …

The thread that keeps on giving. Nice.
