In 1966, English rockers the Yardbirds’ guitar chair became ridiculously over-gunned when Eric Clapton’s replacement Jeff Beck convinced Jimmy Page to join as well. It was a decision that would prove his undoing, as it made it easy to fire Beck when he had a temper tantrum onstage and ditched the band to fly to L.A. alone during a tour of the U.S. that fall. Page hijacked the Yardbirds, using it as launching board for Led Zeppelin, as Beck moved on to a successful solo career. But he apparently never got over his ejection from the band; when it was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992, in his acceptance speech, Beck said, “Someone told me I should be proud tonight, but I’m not, because they kicked me out. Fuck them!”
