The Jeff Beck documentary, Still on the Run: The Jeff Beck Story, is out today (Friday) on DVD and Blu-ray.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, he says, "It was like This Is Your Life in condensed form, but they left out all the gory bits. I'll save those for myself.
"What I wanted to do was try to get a major film company in a proper film, maybe call it All the Good Bits. Because I don't think anybody that's had a long career has actually done the comedic side of showbiz, rock & roll, whatever. It's a shame not to have the Keith Moon hovercraft in this – it's just gold dust – going to the pub on a hovercraft. It's the sort of thing that Mike Myers and Dana Carvey could do. [Carvey] would be perfect."
The film features interviews with Beck at home and in his workshop, along with Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, David Gilmour, Ronnie Wood, Slash, Jan [pr: Yon] Hammer, Joe Perry and many others. And, in addition to his career, the film also covers his love of hot rod cars.
