A Jeff Beck tribute concert, organized by Eric Clapton and Sandra Beck, the guitarist’s widow, took place Monday night (5/22) at London’s Royal Albert Hall.  The event featured Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, ZZ Tops’ Billy Gibbons and actor/guitarist Johnny Depp.  A second all-star concert was held Tuesday night.

Beck, who passed away earlier this year, was a driving force in The Yardbirds, Jeff Beck Group and Beck, Bogart & Appice.  He also had a vaunted solo instrumental career.

Concert songs: Train Kept-A Rollin (Originally by The Yardbirds)
