British rock musician Eric Burdon was the singer of the bands »The Animals« and »War«. Among his most famous songs are »We Gotta Get Out of This Place«, »San Franciscan Nights«, »Monterey« and »Spill the Wine« as well as cover versions of »House of the Rising Sun« and »Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood«.
Time and again Burdon experimented successfully with new music styles. Strongly influenced by the blues of Bo Diddley and the soul of Ray Charles, he has released nearly 50 albums since the 1960s, some of which have climbed high up the charts throughout the world. He performed together with Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Witherspoon and Otis Redding and was named one of their ten favourite musicians by Patti Smith and Iggy Pop. Music magazine Rolling Stone lists Burdon on place 57 of the greatest singers of all times.
Burdon’s first band was »The Pagan Jazz« in 1958, in which he played together with John Steel. In the years that followed, both musicians changed bands several times. In 1961, Burdon also sang for Alexis Korner and then joined »Blues Incorporated« where he met Alan Price. In 1962, Burdon and Price founded the band »Alan Price Rhythm & Blues Combo«, which became the »Animals« in 1964. With this formation, Burdon was highly successful for many years, with several top 10 hits, including the number 1 »House of the Rising Sun«. After Price left the band in 1965, Burdon took the lead. In 1966, under the name »Eric Burdon and the Animals«, the single »See See Rider« was released.
