Special surprise in store for devotees…
The Yardbirds are back with a new lineup, ready to rock. Founding member and drummer JIM McCARTY is the keeper of the flame, and he has a real surprise for you. He’s brought back the Yardbirds’ first guitarist, TOP TOPHAM! He was in the band before Clapton and had to leave because his parents didn’t approve of his career choice. Top was an art student and had to continue with his studies. Enter another art student from the same secondary school, Eric Clapton, and you know what happened from there. But, Top is now happy to leave his paintbrush home and play the blues.
The rest of the Yardbirds now also includes bassist KENNY AARONSON (Bob Dylan, David Gilmour), MYKE SCAVONE (singer, Ram Jam) on blues harp, vocals and percussion along with lead guitarist and singer JOHN IDAN who was on The Yardbirds’ critically acclaimed 2003 album, Birdland.
