70’s Guitar Gods (E28)

Scott Lask loves rock and roll guitars. Since the days of seeing Led Zeppelin he has continued a personal mission to create new music while making sense of a unique and momentous time of the 60’s and 70’s. In this part 2 of the LTNF interview with Scott we move through Page, Beck, Harrison and even throw in a pinch of Marr – for good measure.

Scott introduces us to a raucous new piece that he wrote and recorded… yes, another world premiere on LTNF.

70’s Guitar Gods this week on Lester the Nightfly (E28).

Jimmy Page


Scott Gets Us to Beck’s Bolero

Beck’s Bolero” is a rock instrumental recorded by English guitarist Jeff Beck in 1966. It is Beck’s first solo recording and has been described as “one of the great rock instrumentals, epic in scope, harmonically and rhythmically ambitious yet infused with primal energy”. “Beck’s Bolero” features a prominent melody with multiple guitar parts propelled by a rhythm inspired by Ravel’s Boléro.

The recording session brought together a group of musicians, including Jimmy Page, Keith Moon, John Paul Jones, and Nicky Hopkins, who later agreed that the line up was a first attempt at what became Led Zeppelin. However, there is an ongoing disagreement over the composer as well as producer credits. Despite being credited solely to Page, Beck claims that he made significant contributions to the composition. Likewise, Page and Simon Napier-Bell each claim to have produced it, while Mickie Most received the credit.
