THE SPENCER DAVIS GROUP, THE YARDBIRDS & THE TROGGS In Concert – 2002 UK 20 page tour programme, complete with flyer for the concerts. This copy has been nearly FULLY AUTOGRAPHED by all parties on the bill, including Spencer Davis, Miller Anderson, Colin Hodgkinson, Eddie Hardin & Pete York from The Spencer Davis Group, Chris Dreja, Jim McCarty, John Idan & Alan Glen from The Yardbirds and Reg Presley, Chris Britton, Peter Lucas & Dave Maggs from The Troggs. In fact, everybody except The Yardbirds’ guitarist at the time, Gypie Mayo! These signatures were obtained by Yukiko Smythe. For many years Yukiko’s husband, Colin Smythe, was Eric Clapton’s assistant tour manager. On August 27th 1990 Colin, along with Clapton’s agent Bobby Brooks, his bodyguard Nigel Browne and Stevie Ray Vaughan boarded a helicopter bound for Chicago. Tragically, the helicopter crashed shortly after take-off, killing all on board. Since that fateful day, Yukiko’s love of live music has endured and over the next two decades she continued to obtain many signatures whilst backstage at concerts around the world. We’re honoured to be offering this example now, for the very first time.
