Deadline MusicA variety of respected rock guitarists have lent their talents to a new album paying tribute to influential blues-rock guitar virtuoso Jeff Beck. Jeffology: A Guitar Chronicle, which will be released on October 2, features Toto‘s Steve Lukather, Def Leppard‘s Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell and others playing renditions of select tunes that Beck recorded with The Yardbirds and as a solo artist.

Lukather contributes a cover of “Behind the Veil” from the 1989 album Jeff Beck’s Guitar Shop; Collen is featured on a rendition of the Stevie Wonder-penned “Cause We’ve Ended as Lovers,” which originally appeared on Jeff’s 1975 release Blow by Blow; and Campbell plays on a version of “Led Boots,” from the 1976 Beck album Wired.

Other guitarists featured on Jeffology include Mötley Crüe‘s Mick Mars, Ratt‘s Warren DeMartini, Mr. Big‘s Paul Gilbert and ex-Ozzy Osbourne band member Jake E. Lee,. The album will be available on CD and as a digital download.
