Alice Cooper is opening up about the last time he saw Jeff Beck perform before his sudden death. Jeff passed away in January at the age of 78. A representative told the media after his passing, “After suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis, he peacefully passed away yesterday. His family ask for privacy while they process this tremendous loss.”
Alice admitted that he just saw Jeff perform alongside Johnny Depp just two weeks before he died. He shared, “They were playing in Phoenix. And he was great. I mean, I didn’t see – I didn’t notice anything at all. It must have happened very quickly.”

May Jeff rest in peace.
