- Jan 31, 2023
He was part of the founding lineup of the Yardbirds in 1963, with whom he played guitar. Topham was replaced by Eric Clapton shortly after his departure. He later played with Duster Bennett and for the Blue Horizon label on recordings for Peter Green, among others. He temporarily turned his back on the music business in the '70s, teaming up with his old Yardbirds buddy Jim McCarty in 1988 and forming The Topham-McCarty Band to make Blues from then on. Subsequently, Topham was repeatedly involved in a wide variety of Yardbirds incarnations. Now the musician has passed away at the age of 75.
