Description by OLDIES.com:

An intimate and fascinating account of The Yardbirds' rise from the quiet suburbs of south London to R&B/rock immortality is related with unique style and perspective by music historian and long-time Yardbirds fan Alan Clayson. It covers not just the group's five years of frenetic activity and considerable success in the Sixties, but the subsequent careers of its individual members - including Page's Led Zeppelin (who used the Yardbirds name for their earliest gigs), The Jeff Beck Group, Keith Relf's Renaissance, the Eighties Yardbirds reformation as Box Of Frogs, and Jim McCarty's later career as a guru of new-age music. The story is even brought up to date with details of the 21st century incarnation of The Yardbirds, which sees Dreja and McCarty still touring to packed auditoriums around the world, and recording new material.

Every fan of The Yardbirds, or of Sixties-derived music in general, will revel in this book (which includes over 50 photographs from the group's heyday, plus a detailed diary of every gig, recording and broadcast they did) and enjoy reading the stories, old and new, as much as Clayson enjoys telling them.
