Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
They began as a Jazz group with Burdon on trombone. Partly because Burdon was a lousy player, he switched to vocals and they became a rock group.
Early names were The Pagans and The Kansas City 5.
Chas Chandler became one of Jimi Hendrix' managers.
Andy Summers, who joined the New Animals in 1968, would later join The Police.
Price left the group because he suddenly realized that he was afraid of flying. (thanks, Brad Wind - Miami, FL)
In the 1990's Burdon made a cameo on the TV show China Beach and worked with David Letterman band leader Paul Shaffer on an album.
The Animals appeared in many cheesy 1960's movies, including It's a Bikini World!. After leaving the group, though, Price went on to become a real actor in movies like O Lucky Man!.
Don breaks down "Hotel California" and other songs he wrote as a member of the Eagles. Now we know where the "warm smell of colitas" came from.
Jason co-wrote many of Colbie Caillat's hits, including "Bubbly" and "Realize."
The Garbage drummer/songwriter produced the Nirvana album Nevermind
, and Smashing Pumpkins' Gish
