I wonder if he still uses that oral appliance guitar effect, aka the "voice box". While I acknowledge its popularity, it has an effect analogous to nails on chalkboard anytime I find myself being assaulted by its disgusting oral tones. It's one of those things that evokes a particularly strong fight or flight response in my nervous system.

I once saw Jeff Beck in concert, and not only did he use one of those hoaky devices, he also did the really tiresome "put your hands together" schtick. I had really expected more from a musician of his calibre. And to top it off, he was using UNIVOX amps, some of the worst junk that ever masqueraded as music equipment. It must have been some endorsement deal . . .
