Details of Beck and the Ticket Luck value
Beck Hansen was born on July 8, 1970 in Los Angeles, California and was named Bek David Campbell, but on stage and among fans he is more commonly known as Beck.
Beck?s father David Campbell was also a musician while his mother, Bibbe Hansen was a visual artist.
Originally Beck is a Scientologist just like his father and his wife, but as he moved to Los Angeles along with his mother and his brother, after his parents? separation, he was highly moved by what the music scene had to offer him there in Los Angeles from all the genres including rock, hip hop, Latin music etc.
Beck never graduated from his high school and dropped out and made his way to Europe. There, by busking, he further polished his talent as a musician. Later after returning from his trip to Europe, he was more turned towards the punk genre and got himself involved in an anti-folk music movement.
Beck released his first ever cassette independently in 1988, which was titled Banjo Story. Later he made his way back to Los Angeles, where he was compelled to work in different kinds of dead end and low paying jobs to earn his living, while still pursuing his dream of being a musician.
During that period, Beck also slipped in to several concerts and gigs along with busking on the streets. Beck formed a duo with Chris Bellow, and both of them started performing as a duo on the streets.
Beck earned his share of exposure after he made his debut release titled Mellow Gold in 1994, which was produced by Rothrock, Schnapf, and Stephenson.
After his success from Mellow Gold he further released Stereopathetic Soulmanure and One Foot in the Grave, which were followed by his world tour in 1994.
Beck was mainly famous for Mellow Gold, which is why he was also cited as one hit wonder by many music critics as well.
Beck exhibited his song writing skills in his follow up album to Mellow Gold, which contained rather depressing low beat sound.
Since that kind of melancholic music was considered to be the reason of deaths of many of his close relatives, he just put the album aside and started working on a less-gloomy album with an upbeat approach.
Beck than released his next album, titled Mutations that was followed by his 1998 release Odelay. Later in November, the next album by Beck, titled Midnite Ventures was released, which was highly anticipated by fans.
After the release of his album, Beck went on world tour in order to support his album. Midnite Ventures came out to be a major success for Beck as the album was also nominated at 43rd Annual Grammy Awards for Best Album.
Beck?s sixth studio album that followed Midnite Ventures was Guero that was produced by Dust Brothers and Tony Hoffer.
The album also received critical acclaim after it was released in March 2005 and also earned good reviews from several musical reviewers. For this album Beck also collaborated with Jack White, a band member of a band named White Stripes.
