Aerosmith man praises guitar legend Beck

Jeff Beck's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame over the weekend was well deserved, according to Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry.

br /> The rock star, who played alongside the inductee, Metallica and Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones at the end of the ceremony on Saturday night, told the Boston Herald that even the very best electric guitar players consider Beck to be great.

"He's a guitar god," Perry remarked. "And a lot of great guitar players would say the same thing - he's head and shoulders above the rest."

Musical instrument manufacturer Fender appeared to agree with Perry's assessment, claiming on its website that "it's about time" that Beck - who has his own signature model Stratocaster - was recognised by the Hall of Fame for his achievements.

Beck is currently on a tour of the US, but is set to head to the UK at the end of June for a series of concerts.
