As lead singer of The Animals, Eric Burdon delivered the classics House of the Rising Sun, We’ve Got To Get Out Of This Place, Its My Life, Sky Pilot, Monterey, Don’t Bring Me Down and See See Rider.

His music was a major influence on Bruce Springsteen who told the audience at SXSW that he got into music because of Burdon.
