Welcome to a very special Better Each Day show, with the one and only drummer of one of the original British Invasion bands, a pioneer blues/rock band that gave us Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.
Couldn’t they get anybody good? And Jimmy Page just prior to forming Led Zeppelin.
Well we’re talking about a Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame band that was formed by today’s guest, the drummer of the Yardbirds and author, Jim McCarty.
The Yardbirds were part of a mid-60s playlist that, I don’t know about you, but it takes me back to the YMCA camp AM clock radio that woke us up with Satisfaction, California Girls, Baby Love and one rowdy band from England that stuck out cool, the Yardbirds.
I recorded a very laid back conversation with Jim one rainy Monday morning.
