Rod Stewart + Jeff Beck Ditch Plans to Work Together

Rod Stewart and Jeff Beck were planning to record blues tracks together for the first time in 40 years. But they ended up ditching that directive since they didn't like each other's work.
Stewart and Beck got together in 2011 to record a blues album, which would be their first new material together since the guitarist broke up The Jeff Beck Group on the eve of the Woodstock festival in 1969.
They worked separately on demo tracks for the album but when it came time to merge their ideas, they hated each other's work and had to shelve the project. Their friendship has suffered, as well.
R. Stew said, "We actually started working on a blues album together. We went away and put some demos together and sent them to each other and I hated his and he hated mine. I emailed him to wish him a Merry Christmas, didn't get anything back. It would be electric if we got together, but it would need Hillary Clinton to bring it off."
Hil, can you intervene and use your diplomatic relations skills to fix this issue?
