A new look at the life of guitarist Jeff Beck, "Still On the Run: The Jeff Beck Story," was announced for release April 5 on DVD and Blu-ray on May 18 by Eagle Rock Entertainment. The documentary will cover much of his career including taking fans back to his days with The Yardbirds, which brought him to the U.S. for the first time, and The Jeff Beck Group, whose first incarnation included both Ron Wood and Rod Stewart.
"Still On the Run" features new interviews with Beck, a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee (as a solo artist and with The Yardbirds) and winner of eight Grammy Awards, as well as many of those involved in his story, including Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Stewart, David Gilmour, Ronnie Wood, Slash, Jan Hammer, Joe Perry and Beth Hart. “I didn’t have to think about taking up guitar, I just wanted to pour my feelings into it,” Beck says in the film.
In other news, Eagle Rock also announced that Beck's Live At The Hollywood Bowl will be released as a double CD set on April 6 and on 180-gram 2-LP vinyl set on May 25 from Rhino. Beck will be touring this summer from June to early July in Europe, then he'll come to the States starting July 18 through August 26 with Paul Rodgers and Ann Wilson (from Heart) on “The Stars Align Tour.” “I always enjoy touring the U.S. in the summer and joining with Paul, and Ann Wilson, should make for quite an exciting night,” Beck said in announcing the tour.
