August 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most essential occasions in rock background: the Woodstock show. While rabid followers of the background of British rock know the backstory of Led Zeppelin's birth, many don't know that the occupations of other teams and musicians arised from the tangled Zeppelin story.

A plain two days after Clapton played his last show with the Yardbirds, Beck prepared to go, and his first single with the Yardbirds, Heart Full of Soul, found him blending blues licks with lead lines implied to mimic the sound of a sitar. In June 1968, Relf and McCarty stopped the Yardbirds, and after one last UK performance, Page liquified what was left of the band.

One of many young British bands of the very early '60s that took their hints from American blues and R&B, the Yardbirds have since ended up being understood as the very early home for a trio of guitar greats. Disillusioned with what he saw as the commercialization of their pure blues come close to with the success of For Your Love, Eric Clapton unceremoniously left the band in very early 1965 to seek a path of his own.

I was doing about 3 studio dates a day, a great 5 days a week and possibly a pair over the weekend break, Page claimed in the Yardbirds Story docudrama.
