    My favorite Yardbirds tune is their cover of the Jimmy Reed classic, 'I Ain't Got You.' Nice guitar work by Clapton.

    First band I ever saw!
    I was at school and got into the Twisted Wheel in Manchester to watch the Yardbirds - (with Paul Samwell-Smith and Eric Clapton) ... probably '64/'65. Wow!
    My ears buzzed for days! I was never the same after that night...

    Ouch. Jimmy butchered one of the best solos in rock.

    It was a great time for music, and a great club to watch musicians - I saw T-Bone Walker, Spencer Davis Group, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers... fantastic artists

    Beck's original is infinitely better.

    I loves me some Yardbirds....all their classic hits are, well, "classic". I did find much of their album stuff to be just "filler". But that was true of many bands back then.....even early Beatles LPs had a lot of covers, but they were SO GOOD!!!!! But Yardbirds were so unique.....

    I've wondered before.....in the version of Train Kept A Rollin' from Blowup, did they change the lyrics to avoid paying royalties to Paul Burlison? ....or was there another reason?

    Page was a better rhythm player and riff master than soloist. A lot of his solo's were sloppy, but then that whole era wasn't real technical savvy.

    Page recorded a ton of stuff under a suedonym or 6 untill the recording company asked him to write elevator music for Muzak, hen he quit and formed Zep thats where he honed his studio skills ,Appearently he played on so much TV and commercial sound tracks for advertizers that he was on the television daily during late 60's and up till Zep time

    I don’t think he did much more than bit work for The Who or the Stones on some early recordings from what I’ve read. He certainly wasn’t a major contributor to them. I think Page is the master of riff based rock. My favorite Page solo is “Since I’ve been Loving You”.
