The ANIMALS
« on: October 26, 2015, 04:23:01 PM »
The premier British Blues Band of the 60's had to be Eric Burdon and The Animals. One of the best singers of the 60's. Many hits to their name, Eric would continue on in various incarnations of the band right up to the present day. These incarnations would feature occasional reformations of the original lineup members at times. Scored a few songs in 80's MTV rotation with ARK (The Night) and released a few harder edged albums in the 70's and 80's with some blazing versions of the original hits.

I'll throw up a representation of each of these:

Don't Bring Me Down (1966)

Eric Burdon and The Animals (obviously a new current version of the Animals) has some US dates lined up. He will be at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, PA Wednesday, May 9. He is now 76 years old, and will be 77 two days after this show. This could be the last time to see this legend live, especially in the States.
