His family informed his fans, friends, and followers of the same in a statement posted on his official social media accounts across several platforms. According to the announcement, Jeff Beck passed away as a result of bacterial meningitis.

The birthplace of Geoffrey Arnold Beck is Surrey, England. He attended Wimbledon Art College as a child. According to The Hindu, Beck had a musical bent from an early age, as evidenced by the fact that he created his first instrument out of a cigar box, a picture frame, and a string from a radio-controlled toy aeroplane.
Jeff played in a few other bands, including Nightshift and The Tridents, before joining the Yardbirds in 1965. When he joined the Yardbirds, he replaced Clapton, and Page eventually took his place. He contributed to numerous tracks by the group, including "Shapes of Things," "I'm a Man," and "Heart Full of Soul," by playing guitar.
The Jeff Beck Group, a hard rock band with Rod Stewart on vocals, Ron Wood on bass, and Aynsley Dunbar on drums (who was quickly replaced by Mickey Waller), was founded by Jeff Beck in 1967. In 1968, keyboard player Nickey Hopkins joined them. The same year saw the release of their debut, entitled "Truth." Their second album, Beck-Ola, was released in 1969 as well.
According to allmusic.com, the band members frequently got into arguments, particularly while on tour in 1970. Following Stewart and Ron Wood's departure to join The Faces, Jeff Beck disbanded the group.
