The Yardbirds

Monday, June 4, 2018, 2:00 AM


The Yardbirds of the 1960s gave us three of the great rock guitarists: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. They created hard rock out of standard twelve-bar blues, doubling the tempos and whacking the amps up to ten. The Yardbirds expanded the range of the electric guitar, experimenting with feedback, sustain and fuzztone. They were a bridge between the tributary white R&B of early-sixties London and the pastures of fuzz-toned psychedelia and power-chorded heavy metal that came later. Jim McCarty, the one remaining original member, fronts a new generation of the band. The lineup he put together in 2015 includes guitarist Johnny A, bassist Kenny Aaronson, singer/harpist/percussionist Myke Scavone and guitarist/singer John Idan.
