The Yardbirds in Blow-Up – Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck

The Yardbirds – Jimmy Page & Jeff Beck Live in “Blow-Up (1966)” a 1966 mystery drama thriller film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni and produced by Carlo Ponti.

Can you say classic? Yes, folks, that’s Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page together with the Yardbirds. Incredible!

Mini-skirted mods, swinging London go-go scenes. Cool 1960s fashions. The Yardbirds with Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.
Michelangelo Antonioni Masterpiece!

Love this movie and this scene. The overall movie is about what is real and what is not, is something real with no one there to verify what you saw. And this scene is great not just to see the Yardbirds and a young Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck et al but to show how context is so important to what we believe. A broken guitar neck thrown into the audience by a rock star is “valuable” while the same guitar neck lying on its own in the street with no information on how it got there is garbage
