Jeff Beck Working on Authorized Coffee-Table Book, Memoir and Documentary

© Yoshika HoritaJeff Beck has enjoyed a long and lauded music career that's included a stint as The Yardbirds' lead guitarist, a lot of groundbreaking solo work and collaborations with such other stars as Mick Jagger, Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, Diana Ross, Roger Waters, Tina Turner, Les Paul, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jon Bon Jovi.  Now, the blues-rock guitar virtuoso is planning to share details of his eventful life and career with a pair of new books and a documentary.

Beck has signed a publishing deal with Genesis Publishing Group, and is preparing a high-quality limited-edition book for release in late 2015, and he's also writing an autobiography.  In addition, Jeff is working on his first-ever officially sanctioned documentary.

The two-time Rock and Roll of Fame inductee has a particularly busy year planned.  In addition to the aforementioned projects, Beck has a series of solo tour dates and joint shows with ZZ Top scheduled in the spring.  He also is planning to finish a new studio album that is expected out before the end of the year.

Meanwhile, Jeff continues to promote his new concert video, Live in Tokyo, which was released this past November and captures an April 2014 show Beck played in the Japanese city.
