we both play Fender Fender Stratocasters. That's where the resemblance ends however - he's one of the world's best ever rock guitarists, and I'm not.
Beck is like Marmite - you either love him or you don't, and I'm afraid I don't. He has experimented way too much over the years for my liking, and it has been to the detriment of his musical success. Everyone knows 'Hi ho silver lining', but I bet most people would be hard-pressed to recall any other memorable Beck track.
I'll leave him to you, to be honest. He's technically brilliant, but I can't see that he's ever recorded anything to equal his first album - 'Truth', recorded way back sometime in the late 1960's. If sheer technical guitar-playing brilliance is your thing his last offering, called 'You had it coming' is well worth listening to, but otherwise it's not my idea of music heaven.
