Throwback Thursday: For Your Love

The Yardbirds were primarily a blues band until they recorded their first real big hit, "For Your Love", a psych-rock song drenched in pop.

Their lead guitarist quit because of this departure from the blues. The name of this guitarist was Eric Clapton.

"For Your Love" was the last song Clapton recorded with The Yardbirds, and by the time it was released and became a smash hit, Jeff Beck had replaced Clapton on the guitar and who is shown in this video.

Shortly after this performance was shot, Jimmy Page joined the band on bass.
