'We Nearly Packed It In' said The Yardbirds to Peter Jones

Peter Jones, Record Mirror, 28 November 1964

"WE WERE as low as we could be. Our lead singer was desperately, dangerously, ill — in fact, he nearly died. When we heard he was that bad, we just wanted to chuck in show business, the music scene, entirely. We couldn't even muster enough enthusiasm to listen to records or go to jazz clubs."
