Bio

The Yardbirds, the pioneering band that boasted three of the greatest guitarists of all time - Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page - will now welcome longtime David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick.

Founding Yardbirds member and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jim McCarty has also recruited bassist Kenny Aaronson (Bob Dylan, Billy Idol, Brian Setzer, Mick Taylor), Myke Scavone (singer, Ram Jam & Doughboys) on blues harp, vocals, and percussion, and guitarist/singer John Idan, who appeared on the The Yardbirds' critically acclaimed 2003 album Birdland. Founding member Chris Dreja is not able to join the band on these dates, but remains with them in mind and spirit.

After postposing a brief North American tour earlier this year, The Yardbirds are back on track to perform those and additional dates this fall. Confirmed tour dates thus far are listed below. Additional dates are being finalized.

The Yardbirds served as an integral part of rock history. Co-founded by McCarty in London 1963 with singer Keith Relf, rhythm guitarist Chris Dreja, bassist Paul Samwell-Smith, and lead guitarist Top Topham, the band melded heavy rock, wild jams, and an improvisatory feel that influenced generations of musicians. Their strict allegiance to the American blues & R&B standards struck a chord with American audiences that were missing out on this sound. The result of The Yardbirds' versions of Bo Diddley's "I'm A Man," Howlin' Wolf's "Smokestack Lightning," and Chuck Berry's "Too Much Monkey Business" led to these original artists finally getting airplay on white radio in the U.S.A. The band also earned a chart-topping hit with their single "For Your Love."

Electrifying, eclectic, and way ahead of their time, The Yardbirds' continue their unbreakable legacy. The Yardbirds' train keeps a rollin' !!!
