David Smale Gets His Wings With The Yardbirds

By now, everyone knows the Yardbirds legend, if not their music; the band graduated three of the great Ph.D.s of rock guitar: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. And now, pray silence please, for their latest recruit; ACM bass graduate David Smale (pictured second from left).

David is a brilliant new generation bass player and his introduction to the Yardbirds brings both power and imagination to an all important rhythm section. Catch them out on tour this year.
