What were your feelings about the Yardbirds?
Well, when I joined the Yardbirds, I got the impression they just wanted my playing to enhance their group as much as possible. Right, so I just worked on the whole act until we got it down so great that we started bringing in bits of destruction to illustrate a point. Like an action painting – we all sort of threw our guitars at it.
How long were you with the Yardbirds?
I stayed with them about two years.
