Long Live Rock
With his influences from the blues and the tonal techniques of a Les Paul, Jeff Beck is regarded by some as the consummate guitar hero. Norwegian Sivert Høyem has given melancholy a new voice. Two worlds, two generations, one motto: «Long Live Rock». Having kicked off his career with the famous Yardbirds, Jeff Beck has now made a surprising move to electronic beats and catchy protest songs with his latest album, «Loud Hailer». Sivert Høyem represents a completely different generation: «Industrial Silence» with Madrugada acted as a gloomy beacon for the new millennium, and as a solo artist this great singer has remained true to form.
