The Animals ('60s "British invasion" group)
There have been a number of lineups of this group, as well as various "splinter" versions where one or two of the original members made a comeback for a few years in the '90s. See http://www.ericburdonalbums.com/band name The Animals.htm for an excellent summary of the different variants.
Disbanded somewhere between february and october 1966. New band with some member overlap was started in october 1966: Eric Burdon and the Animals. Original line-up of Burdon, Price, Valentine, Chandler, and Steel briefly reunited for an album in 1977 and again for an album and tour in 1983.
The Animals were an English band of the 1960s, formed in Newcastle upon Tyne during the early part of the decade. The band moved to London on finding fame in 1964. The Animals were known for their gritty, bluesy sound and deep-voiced frontman Eric Burdon, as exemplified by their signature song and transatlantic No.1 hit single, "The House of the Rising Sun", as well as by hits such as "We Gotta Get out of This Place", "It's My Life", and "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood". The band balanced tough, rock-edged pop singles against rhythm and blues-oriented album material. They were known in the US as part of the British Invasion.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
