Jim McCarty Speaks On New Yardbirds Lineup And Tour


Yardbirds drummer Jim McCarty has put together a new lineup of his band and plans on hitting the road. He spoke with Ultimate Classic Rock on the new lineup which features guitarist Johnny A., bassist Kenny Aaronson, singer/harpist/percussionist Myke Scavone and guitarist/singer John Idan.

"We've still got to rehearse and we're still going to have to work together on the set," he began.

"I think the thing is that it's such a great repertoire and I don't think we're going to have any trouble with that level of musicianship — it's going to be good. It's quite energetic and it's such a good body of songs that really stand the test of time."

The Yardbirds tour kicks off at the 100 club in London on January 30, before heading to the U.S., where the band plays Norfolk, Connecticut's Infinity Hall on October 30. A full list of dates is available at TheYardbirds.com.
