Remembering the Yardbirds

This week (debuting 8/10), original Yardbirds drummer Jim McCarty joins me on the phone to talk about the band’s rise during the British Invasion years. We also talk about the current incarnation of the band, which will find its way to the City Winery next month. Besides giving the world their first exposures to guitar heroes Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band gave us some truly unforgettable songs:

For Your Love

Heart Full of Soul

Shapes of Things

Train Kept a Rollin’

Over Under Sideways Down
