Jeff Beck

Body part: Fingers
Amount insured: $1 million each

Guitar legend and former member of the Yardbirds, Jeff Beck may be a master of his instrument, but he has yet to hone his culinary skills. Following an accident in the kitchen that threatened Beck’s career, he decided to insure each finger for $1 million.

The accident occurred in 2009 when Beck was cutting carrots for a stew and the knife he was using slipped, chopping off the tip of his of his left index finger. Luckily for Beck, a quick trip to the hospital saved his finger – and his career, and now any irreparable damage done to his digits will, at the very least, secure his financial future.
