    THE ANIMALS....Formed in Newcastle Upon Tyne UK in 1963
    Fronted by Eric Burdon ,the band had a string of hits worldwide and are remembered as one of the "British Invasion" groups to hit the US charts in the 60s.
    "The House of the Rising Sun " being their most memorable tune.[..even though it was a traditional folk song ]. Lots of albums,lots of line ups and lots of memorable top tunes !! :grinthumb

    Original line up

    Eric Burdon...vocals
    Chas Chandler..bass
    Alan Price...keyboards
    John Steel..drums
    Hilton Valentine..guitar

    House of the Rising Sun /We gotta get out of this place/Don't let me be misunderstood/Don't bring me down

    Nice one Lou, I like the Animals, I have seen them a few times over the years in different guises, last year they were at Cambridge rock fest and they were brilliant. As you said cannot believe there was no thread on here.

    I presume Sweaty you saw THE ANIMALS at Cambridge with this line up..

    Current line up of THE ANIMALS

    Peter Barton vocals
    John Williamson ..guitar/vocals
    Mick Gallagher..keyboards
    Dan Handley....guitar/vocals
    John Steel....drums

    MUSIC NEWS.....I read in todays paper that after years of courtroom wrangles, Eric Burdon has been allowed to use THE ANIMALS name again . It seems Burdons solicitor told the court ..."No one remembers the drummer...." :uh:

    Two more epic tracks by ERIC BURDON AND THE ANIMALS.....reminds people of the Vietnam war; by the late 60s their sound was more heavy psych rock

    When I was young /Sky pilot

    It's a shame that they have to argue it out for the name of a band, the drummer is still the original and he had up until the latest ruling had the name. I will still go and see them when they play.

    Here something a bit different from THE ANIMALS....it remains one of my favourites by the band. It sounds almost proto-goth with the organ, chimes and Gregorian chant ............. "bring out your dead"

    The black plague

    I do like a couple of their songs, but don't know much about them. I think they did make an appearance on Ed Sullivan's variety show in the late 60's that created quite a lot of buzz.:think:

    Wonderful Band! I had early exposure to them in my youth, as this was some of the only "British Invasion" music listened to in the house. My Dad had an affinity for them that he picked up while in Vietnam (especially the song "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place").

    The first album I actually owned by them was their collaboration with Sonny Boy Williamson. Sonny also cut tracks with the Yardbirds during this time as well.
