On the shelf in my office is a wonderfully illustrated book called The Complete Rock Family Tree. Exquisitely drawn by Pete Frame, it shows how so much of rock history is related through connections between various musicians and the groups in which they played.
Something similar has been circulating on Facebook and I bring it up here because it shows all the connections and influence Jeff Beck (who died yesterday) had throughout the rock universe, starting with his band, The Yardbirds. It is, however, causing some debate. Thoughts?
