Eric Burdon has probably seen a lot of crazy shit. Known for his strong stage persona and having been in rock & roll for more than 50 years, he’s fronted two seminal ’60s and ’70s bands: bluesy Rock and Roll Hall of Famers the Animals, and the funk-rock band War, though he left both long ago. Moreover, in between being ranked No. 57 in Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, and snagging the occasional film role, he’s been churning out solo albums and rocking well into his golden years. Great job, Eric—and, as Nardwuar says, “keep on rocking in the free world.”
Eric Burdon will perform Sunday (May 19) at 8 PM at the Egg (Empire State Plaza, Albany). Tickets are $34.50-54.50. For more info, call 473-1845.
