"It Happened this Week"

Recommended Posts

Excerpt from http://www.toxic-web.co.uk/blog/2008/06/14...ened-this-week/

1966, Jimmy Page joins The Yardbirds, replacing bassist Paul Samwell-Smith … session guitarist Page had originally been asked to join when Eric Clapton quit The Yardbirds in 1964 but demurred and recommended Jeff Beck … eventually rhythm guitarist Chris Dreja would swap duties with Page creating the devastating twin-guitar attack of Page-Beck that, alas, only lasted a few weeks until Beck dropped out … they did manage to record a few tunes such as the legendary “Happenings Ten Years Time Ago” and appear in Michelangelo Antonioni’s swinging London flick Blow Up performing (miming) “Stroll On,” a re-write of “Train Kept A-Rollin’,” culminating with Jeff smashing a cheapo prop guitar into his speaker cab and the stage … Beck said later he was embarrassed because his too-tight pants emphasized his um … equipment …

1999, Screaming Lord Sutch dies … born David Sutch, he conferred the title upon himself … his stage show was inspired by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins … of interest to record collectors was his album Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends, recorded in 1968 with Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, John Bonham, Noel Redding, and Nicky Hopkins … despite the inane lyrics and singing, there is actually some hot playing on the LP …

Amazing, that a thread with only a couple of posts from over three years ago was resurrected.
