Jeff Beck was one of the most influential guitarists of all time.

Jeff Beck, considered one of the most influential guitarists of all time, has died at the age of 78.

The musician’s family shared the news on social media. “After contracting bacterial meningitis, he passed away peacefully yesterday (10/1). We ask for privacy as we process this tremendous loss,” the statement concludes.

Beck replaced guitarist Eric Clapton in the band The Yardbirds and, years later, formed a new group in collaboration with singer Rod Stewart.

According to BBC News, “Beck’s timbre, presence and, above all, volume redefined the use of the guitar in 1960s music and influenced movements such as heavy metal, jazz-rock and even punk.”
