Eric Burdon Biography

Eric Burdon will always be associated with British R&B band, The Animals. Coming out of Newcastle in the early sixties, the band burst onto the music scene with an incredible version of The House Of The Rising Sun. The song reached number one all over the world and the band embarked on three years of intensive touring and recording.  This resulted in the hit songs We Gotta Get Out Of This Place, It’s My Life and Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.  Of all the bands that broke through in the sixties, it was The Animals who were considered to be the true purveyors of authentic R&B.  The main reason for this was Eric Burdon’s voice.  

After the original British invasion of America subsided, The Animals broke up.  Eric Burdon, inspired by what he had seen on the West Coast of America, formed The New Animals, which had a more psychedelic vision.  Whilst being a million miles removed from the R&B of the original band, The New Animals were very successful, having more hits such as San Franciscan Nights, Sky Pilot and When I Was Young.

Having joined with the band War in the 1970s, he recorded three albums as Eric Burdon and War. Eric continued through the seventies and eighties with a succession of bands, which supported his solo career, even re-forming The Animals on a number of occasions.
