The Ottawa Citizen recently featured an article about Alex Golota, who collects guitar picks used by famous guitarists. He has collected over 700 picks, including picks from Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, and the Rolling Stones, among many others.
Here he is talking about how he got a pick from Jeff Beck:
“I recently got Jeff Beck,” says Golota, 51, “which is really hard to get because he doesn’t use a guitar pick. But I managed to catch up to his road manager on stage, and he has a bag of guitar picks that Jeff had 30 years ago, and he keeps them for real true fans. It actually says ‘This pick was stolen from Jeff Beck’ on it.”
