Jeff Beck at The Olympia, Wednesday, May 21st

Right, some concert updates need to be done. Not very impressed with Jeff Beck. Almost everything he plays is unremarkable in itself, and is merely an excuse for him to demonstrate his formidable musicianship. Granted, it's hard to pull off the instrumental thing well, and most great guitarists are part of a band or sing themselves, but others can manage it, by just writing half-decent tunes. I suppose I was expecting a bit more blues. As my friend Brian described it succinctly: 'Elevator music', citing the version of 'Danny Boy' as necessitating holding back the bile.
