Soap2day – Ronnie Wood, Sir Rod Stewart, and Sir Tom Jones, who are all famous rock stars, were seen at Jeff Beck's funeral. The famous musician, who was in the Yardbirds in the 1960s and later led the Jeff Beck Group, died last month at the age of 78 after a battle with bacterial meningitis. He was laid to rest on Friday, February 3, at St. Mary's Church in Beddington, Sutton, where former bandmate and "Maggie May" hitmaker Rod called him a "genius."
"It was an honor to share the stage with a real guitar genius. Rest peacefully. Sir Rod Stewart (sic), see you later, Jeff "He wrote it on a note that was tied to a bunch of flowers and put by the church's door.
Johnny Depp, Jimmy Page, and the comedian Vic Reeves were also there on that sad day. When Reeves got home from the funeral, he posted on social media that the Led Zeppelin founder had given the "greatest eulogy" of all, in which Jeff was called "the quiet chef."
He put down, "Just got back from the funeral for Jeff Beck. Jimmy Page gave the best speech at the funeral. He was talking about all the guitarists when he said, "Jeff was the quiet chief." He was right, too. Jeff was the next big thing as a guitarist. We'll miss you, Jeff, and we'll always love your music. So long, my good friend."
The influential rock guitarist died "peacefully" in the middle of January. He is survived by his wife Sandra Cash, and the family has asked for privacy as they try to deal with their "terrible loss."
On his official Twitter page, there was a message that said, "We are very sad to tell his family that Jeff Beck has died, and we know that they feel the same way. He got bacterial meningitis all of a sudden and died peacefully yesterday. His family wants to be left alone while they deal with this terrible loss."
