'Where Were You' - Song Jeff Beck played at Rick's funeral

Post by space triangle »

Well, I diddn't know this. 'Where Were You' was played at the Richard Wright funeral by Jeff Beck. At Rick’s request. Really wonderful and hearfelt tune.



Rick always admired highly this song: 'There's one track on the Beck's Guitar Shop album called 'Where Were You?' that's just this beautiful, melodic guitar sequence. I loved it so much that I took that feel for an instrumental called Sweet July on my new solo album. I wanted Beck to play on it but he turned me down'.

How on earth did you find this out?
There has been little to nothing about Rick's funeral and if he was buried or cremated.
