Jeff Beck's Top 10 Studio Guest Appearances
From Toots & The Maytals to Roger Waters, a look at some of Jeff Beck's best session work.
01. Roger Waters, “What God Wants, Pt. 3,” Amused to Death (1992)
Roger Waters is singing about vultures, bullets and soldiers, when, all of a sudden, a Strat bursts into the mix just before the two-minute mark, playing a powerful, emotional solo.
Is it an outtake from Pink Floyd's The Wall? Nope; it’s one of a handful of Beck-enriched songs from Waters’ Amused to Death album.
Check out Beck’s solo, how he wisely uses every inch of real estate Waters gives him. If nothing else, the song answers the rarely asked question, “What would Pink Floyd have sounded like if Jeff Beck were in the band?”
