Guitar legend Jeff Beck is to be inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame for 2009, at the 24th Annual Induction Ceremony on April 4 at historic Public Hall in Cleveland. When he joins the class of 2009 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, Jeff Beck will join a short list of rockers that have entered the Hall of Fame twice: The guitarist was first inducted in 1992 as a member of the Yardbirds, After his 18-month stint (1965-66) in that band, he formed the first edition of the Jeff Beck Group (1968-69, with Rod Stewart and Ron Wood). In the four decades since, Beck’s work has encompassed deep explorations into instrumental jazz fusion, blues, a tribute to Gene Vincent, and much more, always underpinned by his hard-rock roots, and now 17 years later he’ll be honored for his solo career. (Coincidentally, Beck’s Yardbirds predecessor Eric Clapton is the only musician to be inducted three times: With the Yardbirds, Cream and as a solo artist.)
Jeff’s will be inducted by Jimmy Page (Hall of Fame inductee with Led Zeppelin 1995, and former Yardbird’s bandmate/guitarist).
To be eligible for nomination into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an act must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. This year's nominees had to release their first single no later than 1983.
