Eric Burdon and the Animals at San Diego County Fair June 21, 2012

The iconic, Eric Burdon and the Animals recently played the San Diego County Fair. These English badasses were at the forefront of blues and psyche rock and are one of the key influences for much of the revival bands we have today that emulate the vocal prowess and wholesome swagger of real rock and roll. You may recocnize there guys by their number one signature song “The House of the Rising Sun” as well as by hits such as “We Gotta Get out of This Place,” “It’s My Life,” and “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.” Pure badassery …

Burdon has completed his most personal album to date, titled ‘Til Your River Runs Dry to be released September 18 by ABKCO Records. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the “100 Greatest Voices of All Time,” this should be an album to get your hands on!
