The Yardbirds

 

The seminal British band featured lead guitarists Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page between 1964 and 1968 and, along with The Animals, established blues-based rock as a tenable format for popular music while incorporating an unprecedented breadth of musical influences ranging from Indian ragas to Gregorian chants. The precursor to psychedelia, hard rock, folk rock, and even metal, The Yardbirds endures as more than a backing band for three of music’s most accomplished instrumentalists and arguably constitutes the only legitimate rival of The Beatles as the most influential group of the 1960s.
