Rock icon Jeff Beck has said that the first guitarist to ever impress him was Les Paul. Beck has been paying tribute to the recently deceased six-string innovator ever since with his choice of instrument (just look at the cover of Blow by Blow). At this year’s Grammy Awards, he paid further tribute by duetting on “How High the Moon”—Paul’s signature duet with his then-wife, Mary Ford—with rockabilly chanteuse Imelda May. And tonight will be Beck’s grand farewell, in which he’ll play a set of Paul’s tunes in the intimate venue the guitarist called home.
