On This Day 21 October

Waiting for the Happenings One Year To Come.
1966 21 October On This Day Yardbirds Happenings Ten Years Time Ago

  • 1966 The Yardbirds release Happenings Ten Years Time Ago 
  • 1966 The Yardbirds - Worcester, MA at The Comic Strip
  • 1967 The Yardbirds - Dallas, TX at Studio Club
  • 1988 Jimmy Page Outrider Tour - Dayton, OH at Hara Arena
  • 1995 Page & Plant Unledded Tour - Hartford, CT at Hartford Civic Center
You might want to listen to Jimi Hendrix's House Burning Down right after listening to Happenings Ten Years Time Ago. Seems to me pretty clear that Jimi was influenced by Jimmy, or at least by The Yardbirds' song, which was released two years prior to Hendrix's.

Not saying if it's true it's a bad thing. Not saying anything about anyone "stealing" a song, either. To me it just shows once again how a great musician stands on the shoulders of the musicians before him (or her).
