Does anyone know which members were officially inducted into the hall? I've been looking for a source (Wikipedia has zilch)but I can't find anything.

I believe all founding memebers of the Yardbirds were inducted along with Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page who came later.

So Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Chris Dreja, Jim McCarty, Jimmy Page, Keith Relf and Paul Samwell-Smith?

The site should include a list of inducted members on the pages of inductees, because quite a few of the profiles at the official site do not include those sections.

Actually I found them all on Wikipedia.

Thanks for that. Most of us didn't know!

We don't need your sarcasm Dameon. Take your bad attitude and shove it!

Getting a little touchy there, Mike?

....back to The Yardbirds. I always liked "Heart Full of Soul," "I Ain't Done Wrong," and "Still I'm Sad." "For Your Love" was also good.

I bet you just typed in Dameon's Mom under your e-mail.

My favorite Yardbirds era was the Jeff Beck era. Hands down.He was innovative when it came to using feedback and fuzztone plus he was the inspiration behind the Garage Band explosion that took place in America during the Mid 60's.

Huh. I don't remember posting that, but it absolutely does seem like something I'd say.
