Jeff Beck was married but did not have kids

Throughout his lifetime, Beck had multiple relationships and he was married twice. The guitarist was married to Patricia Brown from 1963 until 1967. Beck and Brown did not have any children together.

According to The Sun, Beck also had relationships “with Wendy Moore, Heather Daltrey, and Celia Hammond.”

After his divorce from Brown, Beck did not get married again for over three decades. In 2005, he married a woman named Sandra Cash. The two remained married until Beck’s death in 2023.

The two were quite private about their relationship, but The Sun reports that the two “met in 2004, when he was 60 and she was 40.”

Cash did not have any children before beginning a relationship with Beck, and the two did not have children during their marriage.

The guitarist had multiple friendships in the music industry

Beck rose to fame after replacing Eric Clapton in the band the Yardbirds. At first, Beck and Clapton were rivals of sorts, but they ended up developing a friendship.

Beck’s friend Jimmy Page, who is most known as the guitarist for the band Led Zeppelin, eventually joined the Yardbirds as well. For a time, Beck and Page both played guitar in the band. However, Beck left the Yardbirds and Page took over his role.

In 2009, Page inducted Beck into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Beck was inducted into the hall of fame twice; once for his work in the Yardbirds and again for his work as a soloist.

Beck was also close friends with controversial actor Johnny Depp. The two released a collaborative album called 18 in 2022 and toured together.
