Most people know The Yardbirds as the band that launched the careers of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page (who later went on to form Led Zeppelin). See this classic band in their Harrah’s Tahoe show June 3.
During the ‘60s, the band had many chart hits including “For Your Love,” “Heart Full of Soul,” “I’m A Man” and “Over Under Sideways Down.”
Core members Jim McCarty, Chris Dreja and the late Keith Relf were pioneers in rock music, using innovative techniques like feedback and distortion.
The band broke up in 1968 but McCarty and Dreja reunited with the release of 2003’s “Birdland,” which featured guests like Brian May, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani. They also released a live DVD in 2013 for the band’s 50th anniversary.
In 2015, McCarty announced a new touring lineup for The Yardbirds, comprised of lead guitarist Johnny A, bassist Kenny Aaronson, singer / harpist / percussionist Myke Scavone, and guitarist / singer John Idan.
