What REALLY happens back stage Sherry? Fairy Tales of S&D&RnR & #EricBurdon

Most R&R fans don’t really know what happens back stage; can you tell us a little about your experience?

That’s a really tough question right from the start. Wow! Way to start with a bang!

Mainly because it takes me most of the book to truly give you an accurate picture of what the real world behind the scenes at a concert is really all about.  I think most people imagine they do know from the sensationalized stories about oversexed rock stars surrounded by giggling, wiggling, gorgeous young groupies willing to thrill every boy in the band, and how marvelous it all is for everyone involved.

Rick's Music Trivia

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 front man 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 OuttaThis 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 U S as part of the British Invasion.

The Animals underwent numerous personnel changes in the mid-1960s and suffered from poor business management. The much-changed act moved to California and achieved commercial success as a psychedelic and hard rock band with hits like San Franciscan Nights, When I Was Young…

Published March 23, 2019 by Sherry Carroll

The song peaked at #1 in the Billboard 100, #1 in Canada, and #1 in the Uk in 1964. This song was my introduction to the Animals sometime in the 1980s. Love the organ and Eric Burden’s voice in this. Historians have not been able to definitively identify The House Of The Rising Sun, but […]

Eric Burdon — Creedance’s Corner

Published February 25, 2019 by Sherry Carroll

Newcastle born Eric Burdon is to my mind, an extremely under appreciated singer of phenomenal power and stage presence. Which is not to say that he’s not appreciated at all. However, generally speaking, people are more prone to listen to and talk about Van Morrison with greater deference. I dare say that Eric Burdon is […]

“The House of the Rising Sun” recorded in 1934….really? — Mastermind Century Group

Published February 25, 2019 by Sherry Carroll

Musicologists say that it is based on the tradition of broadside ballads such as the Unfortunate Rake of the 18th century and that English emigrants took the song to America where it was adapted to its later New Orleans […]
