The band that launched Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page.

Although together for only five years, The Yardbirds exerted tremendous influence on the music and style of the '60s and for decades beyond. Their impact has been felt throughout the rock genre, from psychedelia to blues-rock, heavy metal, and the music of today's jam bands. The Yardbirds came from middle-class England, embraced the soulful music of the African-American South, and helped reimport it back into the States as the embryo of heavy metal music. In the process, the band produced 3 guitar greats: Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck. Every fan of The Yardbirds, or of '60s-derived music in general, will revel in this book by Alan Clayson (which includes more than 50 photos from the group's heyday, plus a detailed diary of every gig, recording and broadcast they did) and enjoy reading the stories - old and new - as much as Alan Clayson enjoys telling them.
