The Yardbirds & The Byrds | Rock Legends – April 29th

This weekend we’re going bird watching!

This weekend we start off our Sunday Night Rocks lineup with The Yardbirds on Rock Legends. This pioneering blues-based combo introduced three of the most famous and influential guitarists of the rock era: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page! This trio’s unique sound – a revved-up instrumental attack, controlled use of feedback, distortion & fuzz paved the way for psychedelic rock, progressive rock, heavy metal, Southern boogie and even punk.

Then we move on to The Byrds, who are known for pioneering folk-rock by combining traditional acoustic music with early 1960’s pop. The group’s signature sunny melodies, lush harmonies, and ringing 12 string guitars – as well as their eventual exploration of psychedelic rock – made for some of the decade’s best singles! The band established a sonic model for many of the 1970’s biggest rock bands such as the Eagles, Tom Petty, and Fleetwood Mac to name a few.
