Jeff Beck recently was asked if any guitarists from this era could be considered in the Top 100 to ever pick up the instrument. At first, the guitar legend was reluctant to name anyone, before settling on one guitarist.
“John Mayer, he seems to be the one to fly the blues flag,” Beck told Spinner.com. “He’s the new Eric Clapton, I would imagine.”
Beck went on to discuss his upcoming project with former Jeff Beck Group bandmate Rod Stewart.
