Something About The Yardbirds & Jeff Beck with Jim McCarty

This show was taped a month ago,
in conversation with Yardbirds/Renaissance/Illusion founding member
Jim McCarty, in an effort to widen the lens exploring the world of
60s British rock that The Beatles operated in. Sadly we find
ourselves now memorializing his friend and bandmate, Jeff Beck – a
giant of guitar whose boundless brilliance we were privileged to
witness. So it is in the spirit of celebrating the legacy of Jeff
and The Yardbirds as well as McCarty’s creativity that this show is
presented. If you are already a fan, I know you will enjoy it; if
you are new to this band, I hope the music and story presented will
set you off on your own discoveries. 

Jim McCarty was far more than The Yardbirds’ drummer – he sang and
co-wrote, as well as collaborated with singer Keith Relf beyond the
band’s lifetime. They recorded together and formed Renaissance, as
well as Illusion. McCarty also was part of the latter-day Yardbirds
iteration, Box of Frogs, featuring contributions from Beck and
Page. Jim has also recorded prodigiously, as a soloist as well as a
collaborator on numerous projects.  

He has also written a pair of
books: 2018’s Nobody Told Me (featuring a foreword by Jimmy Page)
about his life in music, as well as the more esoteric She Walks In
Beauty (2021), presenting his exploration into the world beyond
this world and the answers he found when seeking communication with
his late wife, Lizzie. Jim is a canny, insightful storyteller, and
both books include much on what he’s learned in and out of music.
