The Yardbirds

This Song: The Shelters

David Sanger:

The Shelters love to rock and their self titled record is a testament to that. But why do they rock?  Would you believe Link Wray’s “Rumble”, the music of the Yardbirds and a Tom Petty concert sing-along all played a part in their sound? Well, believe it. Chase Simpson and Josh Jove from the LA-based band walk us through how playing worse is better and what the goal of a songwriter should be.

Watch the Shelters’ video for “Rebel Heart.”
