Jeff Beck 'insures his fingers for $1m each'
Legendary guitar player Jeff Beck has insured his fingers for $1 million each (Â£650,000) after nearly losing the tip of one digit.
The mishap occurred when he was slicing carrots and although it was successfully reattached the accident made it difficult for Beck to finish the recording of new album Emotion and Commotion.
But the star has now decided to increase his insurance policy in case he ever loses the ability to play the electric guitar, reports the Daily Mirror.
A source told the news provider: "He's taking no chances and has upped his insurance to $1 million per finger."
Another famous act to have an expensive insurance deal for one of his most important musical assets is Bruce Springsteen, whose voice is covered to the tune of Â£3.5 million.Posted on 10 Apr 2010 09:00 to category : Music News
