Burdon was lead singer of the Animals, formed during 1962 in Newcastle upon Tyne. The original band was the Alan Price Rhythm and Blues Combo, which formed in 1958; they became the Animals shortly after Burdon joined the band. The Animals combined electric blues with rock; in the US they were considered one of the leading bands of the British Invasion. Along with the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, the Hollies, the Dave Clark Five, and the Kinks, the group introduced contemporary British music and fashion to American audiences. Burdon’s powerful voice can be heard on the Animals’ singles “The House of the Rising Sun”, “Baby Let Me Take You Home”, “I’m Crying”, “Boom Boom”, “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”, “Bring It On Home to Me”, “We Gotta Get Out of This Place”, “It’s My Life”, “Don’t Bring Me Down”, “See See Rider”, “Monterey”, and “Sky Pilot”.
