Most R&R fans don’t really know what happens back stage; can you tell us a little about your experience?

That’s a really tough question right from the start. Wow! Way to start with a bang!

Mainly because it takes me most of the book to truly give you an accurate picture of what the real world behind the scenes at a concert is really all about.  I think most people imagine they do know from the sensationalized stories about oversexed rock stars surrounded by giggling, wiggling, gorgeous young groupies willing to thrill every boy in the band, and how marvelous it all is for everyone involved.

Rick's Music Trivia

3207098

The Animals were an English band of the 1960s, formed in Newcastle-upon-Tyne during the early part of the decade. The band moved to London on finding fame in 1964. The Animals were known for their gritty, bluesy sound and deep-voiced front man Eric Burdon, as exemplified by their signature song and transatlantic No.1 hit single, The House of the Rising Sun, as well as by hits such as We Gotta Get OuttaThis Place, It’s My Life, and Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood. The band balanced tough, rock-edged pop singles against rhythm and blues-oriented album material. They were known in the U S as part of the British Invasion.

The Animals underwent numerous personnel changes in the mid-1960s and suffered from poor business management. The much-changed act moved to California and achieved commercial success as a psychedelic and hard rock band with hits like San Franciscan Nights, When I Was Young…

Eric Burdon — Creedance’s Corner

Published February 25, 2019 by Sherry Carroll

Newcastle born Eric Burdon is to my mind, an extremely under appreciated singer of phenomenal power and stage presence. Which is not to say that he’s not appreciated at all. However, generally speaking, people are more prone to listen to and talk about Van Morrison with greater deference. I dare say that Eric Burdon is […]

The Fat Angel Sings

The original band of the Animals, broke up in 1966 and this band was entirely new except for lead singer Eric Burdonand drummer Barry Jenkins, who joined the original lineup when John Steel left in February 1966. With the new band, featuring guitarist Vic Briggs, bassist Danny McCulloch and electric violinist John Weider, Burdon began to move from the gritty blues sound of the original mid-1960s group into psychedelic music.
