RIP Jeff Beck

Jeff Beck, one of the most innovative and
influential guitar gods of the 1960s’ British Invasion and the No. 5 entry on Rolling Stone’s ranking of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time, has died suddenly at age 78.

The shocking news — which comes just two months after the eight-time Grammy-winner and two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee wrapped his concert tour with friend Johnny Depp to promote their 2022 collaborative album, 18 — was announced Tuesday by his publicist, Melissa Dragich.


This song introduced me to him 'not just being another guy with a guitar':

Jeff Beck was an amazing guitarist. I was lucky enough to see him live, opening for B.B. King, who was great as well. I can't remember if they played together. I think so, but sadly I'm not sure. I do remember him playing the first song from the album below, which is my favorite of his.

Lisa Marie Presley was in a full cardiac arrest when paramedics were called.



Lisa Marie Presley, Only Child of Elvis, Dead at 54​

Lisa Marie Presley, the 54-year-old daughter of Elvis Presley, died on Thursday after being admitted to the hospital earlier that day, according to her mother.

Just hours after Priscilla Presley confirmed on Instagram that her daughter was rushed to the hospital, it was announced that Presley had passed away.

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement Thursday evening. “She was the most passionate, strong, and loving woman I have ever known.”

Los Angeles County paramedics were called to a home in Calabasas at 10:37 a.m. after receiving a report of a woman in full cardiac arrest. Property records show that the house belonged to Lisa Marie Presley.

According to Craig Little, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County fire department, paramedics arrived at the scene six minutes later. They performed CPR and determined that the patient had signs of life before taking her to a nearby hospital in West Hills for further treatment.

Calabasas is a city located approximately 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.

Presley’s hospitalization was first reported by TMZ and later confirmed by Priscilla in a statement on Twitter, in which she asked for prayers.

“My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital. She is now receiving the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers,” she wrote. “We feel the prayers from around the world and ask for privacy at this time.”

Presley attended the Golden Globes on Tuesday, where she praised Austin Butler’s portrayal of her father in the movie “Elvis” as “mind-blowing” in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“I really didn’t know what to do with myself after I saw it,” she told ET of Baz Luhrmann’s movie. “I had to take, like, five days to process it because it was so incredible and so spot on and just so authentic that, yeah, I can’t even describe what it meant.”

Days before she died, Presley visited Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee, to mark her rock legend father’s birthday on Jan. 8.

Presley recently wrote an essay for People magazine discussing her struggles with grief following the suicide of her son Benjamin Keough in 2020. She is also the mother of actor Riley Keough and has twin daughters.

In the essay, she stated: “I’ve dealt with death, grief, and loss since I was nine years old. I’ve had more than my fair share in my lifetime, yet I’ve managed to make it this far.”

^^^ Sad... Can't stop wondering what would have happened if Elvis had had a son. Imagine the pressure of having to live in that shadow and be expected to fill those shoes. Almost impossible to live up to. Everyone would push you and want a piece of you. Probably just as well it never happened.

He would probably change his identity to be free from all that.

Yeah, look at how they went after Julian Lennon in the 80s.

This seems as good a place as any to shill for the movie Bubba Ho-Tep:
Part of the story is that the main character is the real Elvis who everyone thinks is an impersonator, but he had in fact recruited an impersonator to fill in for him after he 'got tired of it all'.
