We all know how fit Mick is and how hard he trains.But Jeff Beck I noted was also very agile,at one point at the Manchester gig he swiftly knelt down to adjust something and sprang back up like a spring chicken.I remember thinking this man is 77 and is obviously incredibly fit.Maybe it’s down to bending down and fixing those Hot rod cars.

He looked a bit fragile indeed since the last time I saw him - Holland 2015. Grab those concerts while old legends still can deliver. Jeff's playing was still very inspired at the Royal Albert Hall.

Jeff Beck will be play here in Tampere this month. Tickets has been on sale for a while, but seemingly not selling that good. But yesterday it was announced that Johnny Depp will be there too. And oh la la. The place was quickly sold out.

For your ticket selling and publicity I guess it is good to have a notorious Hollywood film star as a friend...

Not bad for a country that makes it to a lousy no 22 at the plastic fantastic European 2022 song festival .

Sounds like a well known old sixties song to me. Could easily be a session player like Jimmy Page on guitar.

So we're getting a Beck and Depp album : [www.rollingstone.com]

Mostly covers with two Depp originals, including the first "single" that's listenable I suppose...


Of note..."Ahead of the album’s release, Beck will kick off another month-long tour of Europe starting June 19, reportedly with Depp in tow." - so for all dates it seems ? Everything's going to sell out quickly, including the Paris date on the 25th.

Maybe Johnny Depp wants to keep a high profile these days whether it's in a friend's band or we may even see him in TV adverts for anything and everything.

He's got expensive tastes, like spending 50,000 quid for a few friends having an Indian meal up in Gateshead I think it was.

You gotta keep in the public eye when he wants to get some more million dollar film roles.

Because they are friends...
It's a win-win for all involved.

The show with Johnny Depp is actually very good.If you have the opportunity to see them take it.
I am looking forward to their album next month.Some great stuff on there.
JD's song "Hedy Lamarr" is well worth checking out.
The guy is in a very fortunate position he has the choice of forthcoming quality roles or playing rock.
I personally hope he tells Disney to "[email protected]@K OFF " when they come crawling back

Anyway looking forward to finding out who will be with him for that tour.

Jeff Beck. Guitar
Rhonda Smith. Bass
Vanessa Freebairn-Smith. Cello
Anika Nilles. Drums
Robert Adam Stevenson. Keyboards

Was lucky enough to see one of the Albert Hall shows. His band are phenomenal - Rhonda Smith and Anika Nilles are a powerhouse of a rhythm section - and a great touch having a cellist added to the mix,

And as for Jeff Beck - he is truly a master, still without equal imho. It's a shame he doesn't speak more in between songs as he's got a wickedly dry sense of humour (I guess you don't need to talk much when you can make a guitar do it all for you). It was also interesting that given the expected demographic of his audience there were a remarkable number of young(ish) females who all stood up and screamed like mad when Cap'n Jack came on. I guess it was fun to see him for a couple of tunes but he was on for too long imo. It just meant less Beck for yer buck (and it was a lot of bucks!)

I saw them in Ronnie Scotts when they played (jammed?) after Ronnie Wood's tribute to Chuck Berry. That was rather awkward. I assume this tour is different.

The French promoter has officially announced that Depp will be guesting in Paris, so it's going to be a sellout now, win-win I suppose as was written above.

But yeah, it's expensive and the 100€ or so I paid in 2016 to be sitting front row dead center at Pleyel where I could inspect his effects rack would get me something in the rafters at Olympia...and I'll be reeling in the afterglow of the Longchamp show, wanna let that sink in as it could be the...like Marseilles was 4 years ago ;-)

This Is A Song For Hedy Lamarr indeed deserves a mention. It was the first song of the Depp set of the show, and he sang and played the acoustic guitar on it. One of the two original songs on “18”, the forthcoming Beck/Depp collaborative album that mostly consists of classic rock cover tunes, Hedy Lamarr is a Hollywood legend of the 1940’s, the glamorous actress-cum-creative inventor. Unique subject matter to pick and there is something Dylanesque about it.

My appreciation of Depp the musician stops there, though.
Johnny Depp is a great actor, and I like him playing a role on the screen no matter what his private life and behavior. However, I’m afraid he is not an outstanding singer or guitar player. To find musical prowess beyond average in him is like saying Ronnie is an exceptionally talented painter (which he isn’t).

I can only second that, saw him at the RAH. I started this thread just to point out that all these legends are getting old , catch them while you can. I don't know either why this also turns into a Depp conversation. To me Jeff Beck can do without him - at least on stage.

The way I look at it is that it's Jeffs' band, and he obviously can have anyone he wants in it.
Johnny can play guitar and sing, and there the two things he can do as well as making a movie or two when the film jobs come rolling in, which they definitely will.
Just in the last two nights on UK TV, I've seen three adverts with JD I've never seen before, and probably a few years old, but he's now on TV, which is the main thing for him.
If the Jeff Beck fans don't like it, no ones forcing them to buy live gig tickets or buy the albums with JD playing on them.

Can't see he's gonna lose out financially, and on the contrary, he's gonna get loadsa fans who wanna see Johnny, and maybe never even heard of Jeff Beck or his music.
As long as the money is coming in, there are plenty of old rockers happy with that. smoking smiley

Johnny Depp is willing to pay Beck more than Jagger was in1988 to tour Asia, although Satriani was a pretty good substitute

the stuff without johnny on the new record is better. i do like the version of "venus in furs" though. jeff's version of "caroline no" is stunning. i've got a soft spot for that song as it was my late mom's name.

saw Jeff Beck in Paris on Monday. He was fantastic.
Johnny Depp was like a bad actor playing a bad guitar player. If Beck thinks he needs a second guitarist and/or a singer he should hire a professional on. If the wants to spend time with Johnny Beck he should go to a pub with him.

[www.theguardian.com]

Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck to review claims they stole incarcerated man’s poem
Song from pair’s album 18 appears to take several lines from Hobo Ben by Slim Wilson without giving credit


Laura Snapes
Fri 5 Aug 2022 11.31 BST

Representatives for Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck have said the duo will review allegations they stole lyrics from a poem by an incarcerated man on their collaborative album, 18.

The song Sad Motherfuckin’ Parade appears to take several lines from Hobo Ben, a poem and song by Slim Wilson, the alias of a self-proclaimed cheat and pimp who served time for murder and armed robbery, Rolling Stone reports.

Following publication, a spokesperson told the Guardian: “We are reviewing the inquiry relating to the song Sad Motherfuckin’ Parade on the 18 album by Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp. If appropriate, additional copyright credits will be added to all forms of the album.”

In 1964, while in Missouri state penitentiary, Wilson met the folklorist Bruce Jackson, who documented his poetry and toasts – a comic form of narrative Black folk poetry, akin to hobo balladry – for his 1974 book on the latter artform, Get Your Ass in the Water and Swim Like Me. This was accompanied two years later by an album of the same name on which Slim performed his works.

In the toast Hobo Ben, the titular wanderer asks the hosts of a party:

Ladies of culture and beauty so refined, is there one among you that would grant me wine?
I’m raggedy I know, but I have no stink
And God bless the lady that’ll buy me a drink.
Heavy-hipted Hattie turned to Nadine with a laugh
And said, ‘What that funky @#$%& really need, child, is a bath.’
Several lines from the song appear in Depp and Beck’s Sad Motherfuckin’ Parade, including the title: “I’m raggedy, I know, but I have no stink”, “God bless the lady that’ll buy me a drink”, and “what that funky @#$%& really needs, child, is a bath”.

“The only two lines I could find in the whole piece that [Depp and Beck] contributed are ‘big time @#$%&’ and ‘bust it down to my level’,” Jackson, a professor at the University of Buffalo, told Rolling Stone. “Everything else is from Slim’s performance in my book. I’ve never encountered anything like this. I’ve been publishing stuff for 50 years, and this is the first time anybody has just ripped something off and put his own name on it.”

The liner notes to the album credit Beck and Depp as the sole songwriters. The Guardian has contacted their representatives for comment. However, the original authorship of Hobo Ben, a work passed on through a competitive oral tradition, may be impossible to trace, along with the ownership of copyright.

Jackson’s son, Michael Lee Jackson, said they were exploring possible legal options. “They do not reflect the actual authorship of those lyrics,” he said. “It’s just not plausible, in my opinion, that Johnny Depp or anybody else could have sat down and crafted those lyrics without almost wholly taking them from some version of my father’s recording and/or book where they appeared.”

As the author of Get Your Ass in the Water, Jackson owns the copyright to the transcriptions of the toasts, making him tantamount to the author in US law, the lawyer Kevin J Greene told Rolling Stone, adding that it may be more of an ethical issue – not covered under US copyright law – than a legal one.

Of the album 18, the author told Rolling Stone: “I don’t know if this record is selling. I’ve seen some reviews that I’d be very embarrassed to have gotten had they been my album. But if it is selling, Johnny Depp is making a lot of money on it. Should it go to him, or should it go to some place that helps the people who produced this culture?”

I'm not quite sure what the cellist adds. I saw them at least once or twice with her but could never really hear her.
