13 Beck's Bolero - The Jeff Beck Group

When Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page were in The Yardbirds together, they did not get along at all, their egos would not allow it.
Eventually Jeff Back quit, and formed his own band. That separation allowed the two guitar virtuosos to collaborate occasionally when time allowed, including on this phenomenal rock-flavored cover of a traditional classical music piece.

Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page spent several months trying to get along together in the Yardbirds, but their egos just would not allow it.
Beck finally left the group and formed his own band [with Rod Stewart as lead singer], which allowed both to relax enough, and Page sat in for the recording session of this remarkable cover of a well-known classical piece.
