Episode Summary

For well over six decades frontman and leader Eric Burdon has lived a life many can only dream of. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was the leader of The Animals and founder of the Funk soul band War during the 1960's to the early 1970's. He's responsible of singing on The Animals massive hits including "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", "House of the Rising Sun", "It's My Life", "See See Rider", and "We Gotta Get Outta This Place". Born Eric Victor Burdon in Walker, Newcastle upon Tyne, England, Burdon fell in love with the likes of Ray Charles and Big Joe Turner and the raw and gritty sounds of American blues and R & B. This music was the nucleus of him seeing and performing with the likes of rock icons like Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis before he was 21 when he and the Animals were their touring band as well as opened for them in the early 1960's when the two toured the UK. Eric's latest CD "'Til Your River Runs Dry" on the Abkco Records imprint is a mix of the musical styles that he's recorded throughout his career ranging from blues, soul, and rock and roll. He's also written two best-selling autobiographies: "I Used to be an Animal, But I'm All Right Now" and "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood: A Memoir".
