Watch Jeff Beck Play ‘Purple Rain’ As A Tribute To Prince

first_imgEarlier this week, a slew of incredibly established musicians made their way to the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, CA to celebrate 50 years of Jeff Beck music. Beck is easily one of the most underrated and understated guitarists, though he’s released music and toured perpetually for half a century. Naturally, the ever-humble guitarist took a moment during his own celebration to pay tribute to another artist – Prince.With singers Steven Tyler and Beth Hart joining him on stage, the band broke into a scintillating version of “Purple Rain.” Considering the influence that both Jeff Beck and Prince have had shaping music, let alone their shared virtuosic level of guitar playing, it’s no surprise that Beck delivered such an incredible solo in honor of the Purple One.Watch the footage from the 50 year celebration, streaming below.last_img
