Jim McCarty - The Yardbirds. Talks About The Band's Amazing Guitarists: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Their Hits And Much More!
Jim McCarty is the original drummer for The Yardbirds, one of the greatest bands of the British Invasion era of the 1960s. They had a string of hits including “For Your Love” and “Heartful Of Soul”.
