    Though one shit hot support act in The Yardbirds (standing behind). There’s Jim Rodford of the Mike Cotton Sound standing behind John, next to Elkie Brooks. He went on to join Argent and the Kinks in the ’70s.

    Jack Bruce? (behind the guy in shades)
    David Lindley? (Upper right corner)
    mARTy GARFeldman? (above George)

    So would that be Eric Clapton ? – behind Chris Dreja – who is behind John.

  4. Kwai Chang says:

    (what? No Johnny Hutchinson?)

    Yes, they positively glow when photographed with other “mere mortals”!

  6. A Car And A Room And A Room And A Room says:

    Yes indeed, alf

  7. I still can’t find Clapton :-/

  8. alf says:

    Right above where John is there’s a guy in a black suit – with his hands crossed – that’s Chris Dreja – behind him are the other members of The Yardbirds – Eric and Jim over his right shoulder – Keith and Ian over his left .

  9. Oh okay, his face is obscured?

  10. A Car And A Room And A Room And A Room says:

    No, that’s Keith Relf, the vocalist :-) Eric is the one smiling out obscured from the very back. And it’s Paul Samwell-Smith, alf, not Ian.

  11. alf says:

    Yep you’ve got him Tammy – obscured and a lot younger then . And thanks A Car – Paul – not Ian . I’m kind of surprised nobody spotted Big Mal standing next to Freddie Dreamer ……. (kidding…kidding !! )

    @A Car And A Room And A Room And A Room…
    Excellent shot on The Eric. I didn’t even recognize him. However, I’m unsure on Relf. That guy looks too tall. But, I’m not a Yardbirdist…so,
    WHO’s the bird(far right)?

    So, the charity photo-op has its place in a proper context…and, that context should be appreciation(worship). Don’t make your Kings sit on the floor…

    The bird is singer Elkie Brooks, Kwai. The “Yard” bird on the far right is Paul Samwell-Smith. And that is Keith Relf next to him

    I learn so much on this blog! I had this photo for many years and had no idea who the rest of the people were. Thanks, everyone!
