Definitions for "Beck "
Keywords:  brook, beak, gesture, yorkshore, dales
See Beak.
A small brook.
In the north of England (except in Northumberland and Durham, where burn prevails) this is the usual word for a brook. It differs from a gill in being more open, and having banks less rocky and a stream somewhat more copious. A gill may contain only a few drops of water, or none at all, and still preserve its self-respect, but not so a beck. Camden speaks of "Beakes and Brookes".

Beck Hansen (born Bek David Campbell, July 8, 1970) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, known by his simple stage name of Beck. With his pop collage of musical styles, oblique, ironic lyrics, and post-modern arrangements incorporating samples, drum machines, live instrumentation and sound effects, Beck was hailed by critics and the public as among the most idiosyncratic artists of 1990s alternative rock. Beck rose from underground popularity following the "junk culture" zeitgeist of grunge (one early Beck song was called "MTV Makes Me Wanna Smoke Crack"). Indeed, many labeled his breakthrough single "Loser", a hit in 1993, as a novelty.
