  • from entertainment.timesonline.co.uk : "This animal loving vegetarian, avid gardener and hot rod fanatic also happens to be the greatest living guitarist on the planet."

  • from jeffbeck.ch : "I drove back home to Memphis after 3 hours sleep, my phone rang. He said, "This is Jeff." I said, "Jeff who?" He said, "Beck." I was freaked out. He said, "We're in Memphis on our way to New Orleans with time to kill. Meet me where you did with Steve Cropper, you know I'm a vegetarian." I jumped in my Mustang with the chocolate because I wanted to show it to him, I was proud of it."
