The Yardbirds

Story by Jack Foley

FOR one night only, The Yardbirds are to play The Live Room at Twickenham Rugby Stadium in April 2009.

This world class band, which launched the careers of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, will be appearing at this brand new, state-of-the art venue on Friday, April 24.

A blues-based band whose sound evolved into experimental rock, The Yardbirds had a string of hits including For Your Love, Over, Under, Sideways, Down and Heart Full Of Soul.

They are often cited as a crucial link between British R&B and psychedelia.

They disbanded in 1968, but reformed in the 1990s, featuring Jim McCarty, Chris Dreja and new members.
