The [electric guitar](http://www.gear4music.com/Guitars.html) legend Jeff Beck is to be honoured with a prestigious award celebrating his contribution to music. Beck is to receive the living legend award by Classic Rock magazine. The English rocker, who at 67 has had a long and illustrious career, has played with the Yardbirds – which featured the equally amazing Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page – and created the eponymous The Jeff Beck Group, which included his pal Rod Stewart. He said: "When I was a six-year-old boy I heard [Les Paul](http://www.gear4music.com/Gibson/Les-Paul-Guitar.html)'s How High The Moon over the radio and from that moment on I knew that I wanted to play the guitar and make music. That moment has led me to where I am today." Beck is seen as something of a pioneer, a musician who has transcended genres, mixing up heavy metal with jazz and even bluesy-style rock. "I'm really a backroom boy, not a mainstream rock act," he said. "It means someone is out there looking at what I'm doing, which is really nice," he told the BBC.
