The Animals were a 1960's Blues Rock group from the UK. Despite greatly influencing rock and roll and being at the forefront of the British Invasion, they have since fallen into obscurity. Have you heard of The Animals before?
Met Martin G last night doing a winery concert- organist- 8 years an animal years with Iron Butterly- and other gigs.... He just left Iron Butterfly two months ago.
Was he with Eric Burdon and the Animals, when they were in California? I know it was Alan Price originally.
My impression was that he is not an original, but a long time tour replacement-
That would make sense. Either way, you're very lucky! I'm jealous, haha.
I love them
I still listen to them. They made some great rock-and-roll. I like their songs cause some of them had meeting.
I loved their music in the 60's and still have 3 or 4 songs on my iPod.
Absolutely. I wouldn't say they have fallen into obscurity, "House of the Rising Sun" is one of the most famous rock songs of all time.
That's really their only famous song nowadays. I've heard songs by them only twice on the radio, interestingly enough, neither were House of the Rising Sun.
Ask any kid nowadays about The Beatles, Stones, or Kinks, and they'll probably know who they are. The Animals, not so much.
I believe The Animals are one of the most underrated, underplayed bands, despite their success in the 1960's. Here is one of my favourites by them: It's My Life youtu.be/s0KlOmrqdyY
I have & they made some good music!
Absolutely. Their version of "House of the Rising Sun" defines that song. I believe they did it in one take.
Also, "We got to Get Out of This Place," "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," and "I'm Crying."
If you don't know the Animals, you don't know Rock and Roll.
