Definitive biography of the band behind hits like trans-Atlantic #1 “House of the Rising Sun” that briefly rivalled the Beatles and Stones for popularity, before relocating to San Francisco and re-emerging as a hitmaking Acid Rock band. Hours of new interviews contribute to this gripping portrait of a hugely talented group of musicians who never quite fulfilled their potential.

It is hard to deny the importance and appeal of the original Animals and especially their blues-rock classic "House of the Rising Sun," a rare instance of a rock version that improved on its folk original, Leadbelly's "In New Orleans." Alan Price's organ playing distinguished the Animals then, and all too soon he left the lineup. Egan digs into the original band members' 1940s-50s upbringing in the gritty northern English seaport of Newcastle. Their story is the familiar one of so many '60s British rockers, that of disaffected art school teens embracing black American music and hitting the big time. Egan closely follows the original band to its 1968 implosion and notes subsequent attempts to reconstitute it. The rest of the book belongs to the patience-trying Eric Burdon and the Animals.
