The individual home pages for the musicians listed can be reached by clicking on their name in the bio section The Animals – were an English music group of the s known in the United States as part of the British Invasion.
Known for their gritty, bluesy sound and deep-voiced frontman Eric Burdon, as exemplified by their signature songs “The House of the Rising Sun” and “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place”, the band balanced tough, rock-edged pop singles against rhythm and blues-oriented album material. The Animals underwent numerous personnel changes and emerged as an exponent of psychedelic rock before dissolving at the end of the decade.
They were dubbed “animals” because of their wild stage act and the name stuck. The Animals’ moderate success in their hometown and a connection with Yardbirds manager Giorgio Gomelsky motivated them to move to London in , in time to be grouped with the British Invasion. Burdon’s powerful, deep voice and the use of keyboards as much as or more than guitars were two elements that made the Animals’ sound stand out. The hard driving blues was transformed into Burdon’s version of psychedelia.
Their sound was much heavier than the original group. Burdon screamed more and louder on live versions of “Paint it Black” and “Hey Gyp”. The Animals still tour frequently in Europe, where they maintain a fairly large following, with a new backing band in as Eric Burdon and the New Animals.

They existed in the mainstream alongside pop stars and power ballads but they were completely anti-establishment. But I look at all that flamboyant screeching, widdly guitar and sexist posturing and think is that really the best a country of three hundred million can do? Kurt Cobain came and mowed them down like wheat before the sickle and you saw what was left of those hair guys trying to get into plaid shirts and look a little less sprayed up because they were done for.
But arguably, amongst global superstar US rockers, only Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Bruce Springsteen, REM, Metallica and Nirvana have combined the qualities of personal uniqueness, creative boldness and popular and critical acclaim required to be considered the greatest of all time. Which is not to suggest no one else counts. In the UK, we have long been fascinated by the underbelly of American rock.
Indeed, you could argue that the real golden era of American rock belonged to the losers, bands that in many ways completely stood against the all-American ideal, the kind of groups whose bloody minded iconoclasm inspired others to pick up guitars and have a go themselves. There is no space either in Born To Be Wild for REM, Metallica or the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, counter-culture bands with enough widespread popular appeal to suggest alternative versions of this tale of revolution, consolidation, excess and decline.

Sloan’s mid s demos , with the long-awaited Buffalo Springfield box set scheduled for release in July, and rumors of unreleased Nick Drake hitting the shops soon.
And Neil Young has been promising so many unreleased early solo goodies on his archival box set for so long that their actual appearance would be an anti-climax!
