Jeff Beck Band and Billy Gibbons – “Foxy Lady” (Jimi Hendrix Cover) Live
Who’s A Cute Little Heart Breaker?
“Foxy Lady” is one of Jimi Hendrix’s most popular songs. He would frequently include it in his concert repertoire and other live shows. It ranked as 153rd in the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” by the Rolling Stone magazine. There were many speculations as to who was the inspiration behind the song and some claimed it was Heather Taylor while others believed it to be Kathy Etchingham, Jimi’s then-girlfriend.
According to biographer Keith Shadwick, [Hendrix] casts the whole solo in the blues vernacular, using bent notes and glisses, or slides, between the notes primarily within the blues or pentatonic scales. To that he adds the new melodicism he had been hearing on recent British rock records.
In this cover, Jeff Beck pays tribute to Jimi Hendrix along with famous ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons. You can even see Jimi’s photo in the screen! Despite its fast beat and tempo, it was still moving to see these two extremely talented musicians tip their hats to the guitar great.
