Jeff Beck has passed away at the age of 78.

Representatives for the legendary guitarist confirmed on Wednesday, Jan. 11, that Beck died on Tuesday, Jan. 10, after “suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis”.

The late artist’s loved ones also shared a message on the star’s social media, writing: “On behalf of his family, it is with deep and profound sadness that we share the news of Jeff Beck’s passing.

“After suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis, he peacefully passed away yesterday. His family ask for privacy while they process this tremendous loss.”

The singer hit the headlines last year when he invited Johnny Depp to appear on stage with him during several gigs on his UK tour following the actor being awarded $10million dollars after his defamation suit against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
