More Yardbirdsy Stuff

The Yardbirds with Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck performing “Train Kept a Rollin'” in the movie Blow Up. In the movie, they’re performing for two human beings and a crowd of zombies.

Eric Clapton performing “Layla” (and other songs — it’s a 24 minute clip) with Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. I believe Ron Wood’s on stage along with Ray Cooper. Is that Rundgren on keyboards?

This video starts off with Beck’s Bolero, followed by Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck performing “Immigrant’s Song” together. If you haven’t had enough guitar work yet, it ends with — get this — Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Ron Wood, Flea, and Joe Perry, all backed up by Metallica, playing “Train Kept a Rollin’.”
