Eric Victor Burdon (born 11 May, 1941, Walker, Newcastle upon Tyne). Burdon is best known as a founding member and vocalist of The Animals, a rock band formed in Newcastle, England, and his multi-racial project the Funk rock band War
Burdon was lead singer of The Animals, formed during 1962 in Newcastle England. They combined electric blues with rock and were one of the leading bands of the „British Invasion.” Along with, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Dave Clark Five, and The Kinks the group helped to introduce the world to British music and fashion. Burdon’s powerful voice can be heard in The Animals singles „The House of the Rising Sun”, „Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”, „Bring It On Home to Me”, „We’ve Gotta Get Out of This Place”, „Don’t Bring Me Down”, and „CC Rider”.
Eric Burdon and The Animals
By late 1966 the other original members of The Animals including keyboardist Alan Price had left the band. Burdon and drummer Barry Jenkins reformed the group renaming it Eric Burdon and The Animals. This more psychedelic incarnation of the group featured future Family member John Weider and was sometimes called Eric Burdon and the New Animals. Keyboardist Zoot Money joined them during 1968 until they split up in 1969. In June 2003, he formed another Eric Burdon and The Animals band, which included keyboardist Martin Gerschwitz, bassist Dave Meros, guitarist Dean Restum, and drummer Bernie Pershey until 2005 when they disbanded. During 2008 Burdon toured again as Eric Burdon and The Animals with a variable lineup of backing musicians.
Eric Burdon and The New Animals
Although the band Burdon formed in early 1967 was sometimes called Eric Burdon and The New Animals, it wasn’t until 1998 that the name Eric Burdon and The New Animals was officially adopted. The 1998 band had a lineup of bassist Dave Meros, guitarist Dean Restum , drummer Aynsley Dunbar and keyboard guitarist Neal Morse. They recorded Live At The Coach House on 17 October 1998, which was released on video and DVD during December that year. In 1999 they released The Official Live Bootleg #2 and in August 2000 The Official Live Bootleg 2000, with Martin Gerschwitz on keyboards.
The Animals reunions
In 1975 the original Animals reunited and recorded an album called Before We Were So Rudely Interrupted which was eventually released during 1977 and became much overlooked, due to the dawning of the Punk era. In May 1983 The Animals reunited, with their complete and original line-up and the album, Ark was released on 16 June 1983, along with the singles „The Night” and „Love Is For All Time”. A world tour followed and the final concert at Wembley Arena London was recorded in 1984 and released as an album entitled Rip It To Shreds. Their concert at the Royal Oak Theatre in April 1984 was released in 2008 entitled Last Live Show, the band members on this occasion were augmented by Zoot Money, Nippy Noya, Steve Gregory and Steve Grant. The original Animals broke up for the last time at the end of 1984.
