I could never get into Jeff Beck, either. I really liked Truth but could never get into Beck-Ola or the Jeff Beck Band albums (dissimilar, I know). I pretended to like Blow By Blow and Wired to the point where I almost believed that I liked them, but they were albums whose first couple of tracks I enjoyed but which got old quickly. Now that I'm into jazzier stuff and have an attention span that I can listen to full albums even when I dislike them, I really should give them another go. The guy legitimately was a guitar god, IMO beating the other two Yardbirds guitarists strictly on playing.
That tower actually looks like it could rival my home town's, but since I left the place has been gentrifying unrecognizably with multi-story condos and apartment buildings. (For instance there's a giant Harris Teeter with several stories of apartments above it. The place was pretty plush already but there's been a boom since I left. My best friends' parents bought their house for $500k and ended up selling it for $1.5m.) When I lived there the tallest structure was a nondescript office building.
