Jack White is remembering what he called one of the greatest thrills of his life.

White posted footage of his performance with Jeff Beck in 2002 during a show at London’s Royal Festival Hall.

White shared the bootleg footage on Insta writing, “Jeff Beck, guitar innovator extraordinaire has moved to the next realm. This bootleg clip that I’m posting is when I had one of the greatest thrills of my life, along with Meg White and Jack Lawrence of the Greenhornes, we were ‘the yardbirds’ for one night backing up Jeff at the Royal Festival Hall in London. In our rehearsals he plugged straight into an amp, no effects pedals. He was changing the sound of the guitar and doing things people didn’t know were possible from his earliest days on stage. God Bless you Jeff, you must already be chatting with Cliff Gallup somewhere.”
