|The Yardbirds, Chris Dreja||Photographer||This could have gone in the "New Career" as well...was a photographer from when he left in 1968 to when the Yardbirds were resurrected in 1992. He was offered a chance to be the bassist of the "New Yardbirds", a band Jimmy Page formed, in part to fulfill all the Yardbirds' concert commitments in 1968, but he declined, wanting to pursue photography. He did, however, take a picture of this band, that was used on the cover of their first album. He is also one of the people credited with having given the "New Yardbirds" their final name, supposedly saying that the band would go over "like a lead zeppelin" - Ra'akone|
