♥ 55 YEARS ANNIVERSARY of music heaven & counting! LOVE, APPRECIATION & THANKS to THE ANIMALS ♥ ♫ Welcome to my tribute channel devoted to THE ANIMALS (1963-1966), one of the GREATEST British R&B bands of the 1960s. The material here also includes their reunions in the 70s & 80s along with their 60s career. The original line-up: Eric Burdon - vocals, Alan Price - keyboards, Hilton Valentine - guitar, Chas Chandler - bass, John Steel - drums. Later personnel: Mickey Gallagher - keyboards (temporary replacement), Dave Rowberry - keyboards, Barry Jenkins - drums ♥ Please read this great blog by The Daily Guru about The Animals & their rousing version of House of the Rising Sun: http://tinyurl.com/bssedyg ☺ pretty much summs up perfectly how I feel about The Animals too & just how important this great band was. "If anybody had the sound that we wanted to get it was The Animals" - Robby Krieger, guitarist with The Doors. ☺Thanks for stopping by!
