“Sharing the stage and this moment with Buddy is a dream for me,” Beck said in a press release sent to Guitar World. “His concerts are legendary, and the music world would be a very boring place without his influence.
In other Beck news, the guitarist has been hard at work on his first book, which will focus on his twin inspirations—hot rodding and guitars. The London-based Genesis Publishing Group plans to release BECK01, a “signed, limited-edition” book, later this year.
“Right from the beginning, I’ve tried to do something with anything I’ve got hold of,” Beck said. “At age 13, I built two or three of my own guitars. I painted the frets on. It was fun just to look at it and hold it… I knew where I was headed.”
Beck also is working on an officially sanctioned documentary. Stay tuned for details on all of the above in the weeks (and/or months) ahead.
