TICKETS TORN IN HALF:October 16,1976-JEFF BECK with JAN HAMMER and REO SPEEDWAGON at the PALLADIUM. Only one night after seeing Jackson Browne(how varied is my musical taste?) in the same venue I am back to see JEFF BECK morph from his rock mode into the jazz rock stratosphere. REO, yuck but BECK. Who needs a lead singer when you can make your six string sing? Jan Hammer’s band opens up and 3 tunes in Jeff Beck joins them. GOODBYE PORKPIE HAT, SHE’S A WOMAN and LED BOOTS, and THE TRAIN KEPT A ROLLING, oh my.
