On November 15th 1965, Having a Rave Up with The Yardbirds was released in the US, beginning a month of seminal releases including: The Kink Kontroversy,The Who’s My Generation, The Beatles’ Rubber Soul, The Rolling Stones’ December's Children (And Everybody's) and The Byrds' Turn Turn Turn.
Hoping to enjoy the same chart success as his friends and rivals, a 17-year old Ronnie was playing to ‘knockout’ crowds across the UK. On 19th November his band, The Birds, played The Glad Rag Ball alongside Wilson Pickett, Donovan, The Hollies and The Who (pictured left, in a spread from Ronnie’s 1965 diary).
‘The diary reads like a music obsessive's fantasy as legends pop up throughout the narrative.’ – Classic Rock Magazine
