Burdon of proof: Legendary singer heads to Napa

FAIRFIELD — More than five decades in the music business, numerous top 10 hits and the voice behind the classic “House of the Rising Sun,” are all the clues one needs to figure out the subject is the legendary Eric Burdon.

Burdon found favor with American music audiences during what has been labeled the British Invasion. It was the mid-1960s. The Kinks, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones were topping charts. So were Burdon and the Animals.

He later went on to form War and the Eric Burdon Band.

Now 74, Burdon still maintains a vigorous touring schedule. He stops Monday at Napa’s City Winery for a show.

Here’s what the artist shared via email with the Daily Republic.

Q: Please name an artist you would like to share the stage with for the first time. Why?

A: Most of the people I’ve wanted to share a stage with, I’ve already had the chance to. Others, I will never get the chance to because they are no longer with us. Maybe we’ll meet in rock ‘n’ roll heaven.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
