I was excited to hear that Eric Burdon and The Animals are performing in the area at the Parilla Performing Arts Center on Monday, March 6th. My high school band The Malibooz covered all of The Animals’ great songs during the British Invasion. Burdon was my biggest influence as the singer in my band. He is one of the greatest rock & roll blues vocalists of all time.

It was 50 years ago this year that Eric re-invented the band as Eric Burdon and The Animals. He dedicated their first album, Winds of Change, to George Harrison, whose interest in Krishna consciousness following a visit to India the previous year Burdon cited as an inspiration.

I last saw Eric Burdon and The Animals perform in Amsterdam at the Paradiso in the summer 2013. It was an awesome concert, and here is a link from the Back Room to a post about that show. It will be exciting to see Eric Burdon and The Animals at Montgomery College.
