Yardbirds to perform in Israel
English 1960s rock band, which started careers of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page, to play one gig at Tel Aviv’s Barby club on October 29.
“…In the 1960s, English rock band Yardbirds included three of the greatest guitarists of all times, basically starting the careers of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.
But none of these guitar legends went back to cooperation with the band when it resumed its activity in the 1990s.
And yet, the pioneering band returned to the stage with two of its original members: Guitarist Chris Dreja and drummer Jim McCarty.
Together with additional members – singer Andy Mitchell, guitarist Ben King and bassist David Smale – they will arrive in Israel for one performance, which will be held on October 29 at Tel Aviv’s Barby club…”
