He was one of the original front men of Rock and Roll, and possibly the first ‘famous’ blond one. The Rolling Stones had Brian Jones playing guitar, but The Yardbirds had Keith Relf out in front. And he was one of the best and set the standard for many to follow.
If Keith were still with us, he would have turned 75 years old today. After Keith left The Yardbirds, he formed Renaissance.
On May 14, 1976, Keith was killed by electrocution in his home from an improperly grounded guitar amplifier. He was only 33 years old.
Happy Birthday Keith. Return If Possible. Music could use you today.
