Eric Burdon and the Animals
- 1962: Eric Burdon, a young man with a voice like a soot-lined stovepipe, joins the Alan Price Rhythm and Blues Combo, quickly transforming it into the brawny blues-rock beast known as the Animals
- 1964: the Animals record their transatlantic #1 hit, “The House of the Rising Sun,” in one magical, studio-melting take, thus securing their roles as the British Invasion’s most soulful soldiers
- 1965: On a hot streak, the band transforms Nina Simone’s slow-burning “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” into a faster and fierier hit, and unleashes the iconic “We Gotta Get Out of This Place.” Bruce Springsteen recently revealed that the latter is “every song I’ve ever written. That’s all of them. I’m not kidding, either. That’s ‘Born to Run’, ‘Born in the U.S.A.”
- 1994: Eric and the Animals receive their long-overdue induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
- 2015: the year you get to see the living legend, whom Rolling Stone ranks as one of the 100 Greatest Singers, deliver a catalog of hits that have only gotten better with age
