‘The Six Stringed Warrior Is No Longer Here,’ Jimmy Page And David Gilmour Honor Jeff Beck

Many rockers shared their condolences on social media upon hearing the heartbreaking news of Jeff Beck’s untimely death. Fellow guitar heroes Jimmy Page and David Gilmour were among the artists who paid homage to the late guitarist by sharing emotional tribute messages on Instagram.

The six-stringed warrior is no longer here for us to admire the spell he could weave around our mortal emotions,” wrote Page as he shared his note alongside a photo of Beck from the late musician’s youth. “Jeff could channel music from the ethereal. His technique [was] unique. His imagination [was] apparently limitless. Jeff, I will miss you along with your millions of fans. Jeff Beck, rest in peace.”

David Gilmour also paid tribute to his late friend with an emotional farewell note and sent his thoughts to Beck’s family. The Pink Floyd frontman said, “I am devastated to hear the news of the death of my friend and hero Jeff Beck, whose music has thrilled and inspired me and countless others for so many years.”

He continued by noting that his and his wife, Polly Samson’s thoughts went to Beck’s widow Sandra. The guitarist also emphasized that Beck’s memory would always be with him. Gilmour concluded his message, saying, “Polly’s and my thoughts go out to his lovely wife, Sandra. He will be forever in our hearts.”

It’s obvious how much Jeff’s peers and fellow rockers respected and admired him and his talents, as many other names, including Geddy Lee and other fellow guitar hero and peer Eric Clapton, went on to share their tributes as well. Jeff Beck’s legacy will carry on with these honorary words coming from his friends, and his unique guitar riffs will always be here with us through music.
