Short article on formation of "New Yardbirds"


Recommended Posts

When a rock group like The Yardbirds splits up it's more

than news, it's a tragedy. This group has been packing auditoriums

everywhere it has appeared. They are also largely responsible

for the music revolution known as the underground

sound. With the exception of lead guitarist Jimmy

Page (whom I consider the finest rock guitarist in the

world). The group has been together for more than five


Jimmy and Chris Dreja are going back to London to

form the nucleus for the new Yardbirds.

The group is splitting because lead singer Keith Rolfe

wants to do Simon and Garfunkle-type protest music,

while the Jimmy Page faction want to continue with the hard

beat which has made The Yardbirds famous.
