He quietly died away yesterday after unexpectedly developing bacterial meningitis, according to the statement. His family requests privacy as they deal with this enormous loss.

Beck replaced Eric Clapton in the seminal British rock group The Yardbirds in 1965 and remained with the group into the following year, playing on some of the band’s biggest hits including “Heart Full of Soul,” and “Over, Under, Sideways, Down.” His replacement in 1966 was Jimmy Page, who later would form Led Zeppelin.

Beck’s first album after leaving the band was Truth, which reached the Top 15 and went gold in the U.S. It featured “Beck’s Bolero” and his cover of Willie Dixon’s “I Ain’t Superstitious,” which featured Stewart on lead vocals. The disc also included a cover of Dixon’s “You Shook Me,” a version of which turned up on Zeppelin’s debut album the following year.

He followed that set up in 1969 with Beck-Ola, the first album credited to The Jeff Beck Group. It also made the U.S. Top 15 and cracked the UK Top 40.
