No comeback for the Jeff Beck Group

Well, that's one reunion that is never going to happen: the Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart on vocals. Jeff Beck:

Rod doesn't sound the same. We had a rehearsal, and it was 'People Get Ready,' and he couldn't sing it in the key of D anymore, which kind of threw the spanner in the works for me because the whole song loses its majestic quality when you lower it to C. I don't know what it was, but he can't reach D anymore, and I thought, 'This is not good.' He doesn't sing heavy rock-and-roll anymore -- (just) The American Songbook, kind of lightweight ballads and stuff. Which is great -- you know, he's sensible not to push his voice if it's not gonna happen.
