The Animals were an integral part of the 1960s British rock scene. Captivating audiences with singer Eric Burdon’s deep, howling vocals, the band became something to talk about. Coming over to the U.S. during the height of the British Invasion, the band had legions of screaming fans fainting at the mere sight of them. In late 1966-early 1967, the original line-up disbanded and a new version was formed under the name Eric Burdon & the Animals. Though the band didn’t last more than a decade in any form, their music lived on as some of the most important and influential recordings ever. In 1994, The Animals were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
