Jeff Beck: Rock 'n' Roll Party

"Stephen Colbert reflected Beck's genius and self-effacement when, as host of the 2010 Grammy Awards, he told a worldwide audience, 'You know the game "Guitar Hero?" He has the all-time high score -- and he's never played it.' Beck won his fifth Grammy that night -- he would win three more in 2011 -- and topped things off with a rousing musical tribute to his own hero, electric guitar trailblazer Les Paul. At 67, Beck is going strong. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer continues to tour all over the world. He recently received the Living Legend Award at the Classic Rock Awards in London, where he performed with Joss Stone and Chrissie Hynde. And he's nominated for yet another Grammy (Best Rock Album) for Rock 'N' Roll Party Honoring Les Paul" (Michael Sigman, "Jeff Beck at 67,"  Huffington Post, 1/19/12).
