Profile Bio Text
Burdon was a founding member and vocalist of The Animals, a rock band formed in Newcastle, England in 1962. The Animals, combining electrified blues with rock, were one of the leading bands of the "British Invasion." Along with, among others, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Dave Clark Five, and The Kinks, the group introduced Americans and the world to British music and fashion, its outspokenness and attitude. Burdon`s powerful, deep voice is featured on such Animal singles as "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 "See See Rider". By late 1966 the other original members of The Animals, including keyboardist Alan Price had quit, and Burdon and drummer Barry Jenkins reformed the group as Eric Burdon and the Animals. This more psychedelic incarnation of the group featured future Family member John Weider, and had hits such as "When I Was Young", "San Franciscan Nights", "Sky Pilot", and "Monterey". This ensemble lasted until 1969, going through several line-up changes sometimes called itself Eric Burdon and the New Animals. Burdon is claimed by some to be the "Eggman" in The Beatles song "I Am The Walrus". The reason for this is that Burdon was known as "Eggs" to his friends, from his fondness for breaking eggs over naked girls. Burdon`s biography mentions such an affair taking place in the presence of John Lennon, who shouted "Go on, go get it, Eggman ..."[1] When the New Animals disbanded, Burdon joined forces with funky California jam band War. The resulting album, Eric Burdon Declares "War" yielded "Spill the Wine" and "Tobacco Road". A second Burdon and War album, a two-disc set, The Black-Man`s Burdon, was released later in September 1970. The singles "Paint it Black" and "They Can`t Take Away Our Music" charted in 1971. In 1971, Burdon broke down on the stage due to an asthma attack. War continued the tour without him. In August, he recorded the album Guilty! (later released on CD as Black & White Blues) with the blues shouter Jimmy Witherspoon and also featuring Ike White & the San Quentin Prison Band. Burdon began a solo career as The Eric Burdon Band, without the members of War, but continuing in with a hard rock/heavy metal/funk style. In 1973 the band performed at the Reading Festival, and in 1974 in New York. At the end of 1974 the band released the album Sun Secrets in 1975 the album Stop. Both had chart success. Also in 1975, Burdon returned to the recording studio with record producer Chas Chandler -- an original member of The Animals -- and recorded a still unreleased album with the other original members of his first group. In 1976, after Rhino Records published a compilation album of Burdon & War, Love Is All Around, which featured an unreleased live version of "Paint it Black" and an unreleased jam session called "A Day In The Life", Burdon toured with The Animals, including all of its original members except Chas Chandler. In 1977 the group released their R&B studio album Before We Were So Rudely Interrupted. Burdon then went to Germany and recorded the album Survivor with guitarist Alexis Korner, keyboardist Zoot Money, producer Chandler and several other musicians, including a line-up of four guitarists and three keyboard players. The album is known for its interesting album cover which depicts Burdon screaming. In May 1978 he recorded the album Darkness - Darkness in the Republic of Ireland with a completely different line-up. In January 1979 he changed his band line-up again to jam in Hamburg, Germany and for a gig in Holland. In the following month he changed the line-up once more for a February 4 concert in Cologne. Burdon then had another gig with this line-up on 12 August. He wanted to record with this band and changed the name into "Eric Burdon`s Fire Department". The line-up included backing vocalist Jackie Carter, former member of Silver Convention, Bertram Engel of Udo Lindenbergs "Panik Orchester" and Jean-Jaques Kravetz. In the mid of 1980 they recorded the album The Last Drive. The other album recorded in 1978, Darkness Darkness, released that time and featured the track "Darkness, Darkness". With several changes, adding Paul Millns and Louisiana Red, "Fire Department" toured through Europe with special appearances in Spain and Italy, but by December that year they split up. In April 1981, Christine Buschmann began to film Comeback with Burdon starring. They created a new ยด"Eric Burdon Band" whose line-up included Louisiana Red, Tony Braunagle, John Sterling and Snuffy Walden. This band recorded live tracks in Los Angeles. When they recorded in Berlin the line-up had another change with the only remaining member being Joh
