I love this clip - I assume it’s some tribute to Les Paul from 1988 and Eddie comes out to play to honor Les: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qx_LkeannBc
Les starting off by showing how he invented Looping back in 1944, and how even by 1988, it wasn’t common. He uses his Les Paulverizer, an onboard multitrack box that we would all now recognize as his homemade Looper.
Eddie treating Les like his beloved grandpa. Seriously, I know Les and Jeff Beck deeply respected each other, but Eddie is gushing and kisses Les on the cheek out of respect and affection on three different occasions in this 10 minute clip. I get verklempt watching it.
Full free-range Eddie, playing to show off in front of Grandpa Les. Just a random jam with Tony Levin on bass and Rick Marotta on drums; plays a few known song pieces but is just jamming too. Damn. Just…damn. And the sheer joy on his face - man, I miss that Eddie.
Balding guy on Keytar! The classic '80’s Jan Hammer guy, but not Jan himself. So of its time.
Enjoy as a start to your weekend.
