Jeff Beck Doesn't See The Point Of Reunion With Rod Stewart

It doesn't seem likely that the Jeff Beck Group will be reuniting to mark the 45th anniversary of their debut album "Truth," with Beck explaining to Billboard that it wouldn't work with frontman Rod Stewart.

Beck says Stewart "doesn't sound the same. The timbre of his voice has changed, and therefore there's no point in trying to do 'Truth 2' or anything like that."

He adds, "He should've called me 25 years ago for that, or when I did 'People Get Ready' with him (in 1985) would've been a good time. But his manager didn't want that. I don't think he wants to lose his boy back into my evil clutches, so that never happened."

Beck also revealed that he had attempted to work with Stewart in more recent years but it didn't work out. He said that Stewart "has got to focus. I've already done 11 demos for (Stewart), and he said they were in the wrong key.

"So there's the commitment; he didn't even tell me which key to do these tracks. But I don't want these sour grapes. He prefers (soccer), and maybe that's the problem. I'm not holding my breath."

Beck seems more focused on the present and the future in the interview. You can read it here.
