Ep. 42 - JIM McCARTY (The Yardbirds)

On this episode of The It's Only Rock And Roll Podcast, founding member and drummer of The Yardbirds, JIM McCARTY talks about the band's multi-decade career, starting out as England's most authentic rhythm & blues band, that gave rise to guitarists Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, and helped usher in progressive and heavy rock. We discuss the backstory behind classics like “For Your Love” and “Dazed and Confused”, why Clapton really left the group, recording one of their hit singles at Sun Studios with Sam Philips, recollections surrounding the sudden death of lead singer Keith Relf, and the current success of The Yardbirds following their induction into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
