An Evening With Eric Burdon

Eric Burdon has one of the most powerful and distinctive voices in rock and roll. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1994 and hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Voices of All Time, Burdon's music forged new territory while also topping the charts for more than five decades. Highly prolific, Burdon has released nearly 50 records in those 50 years, as front man of The Animals and WAR and simply as Eric Burdon. Through the changing sounds and genres, what remains constant is his courage as an artist to explore new sounds, leading into new territory with his unrivaled and unique voice. Eric Burdon has shared the stage with legends such as Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Witherspoon, Otis Redding and Bruce Springsteen, and was recently cited by cutting edge musicians Patti Smith and Iggy Pop in their personal top tens. Hear Burdon discuss his musical beginnings as a young man growing up in Newcastle, England, what it was like to help pioneer the psychedelic San Francisco sound and the release of his newest album, 'Til Your River Runs Dry. After the discussion, moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli, Burdon will perform a selection of songs.
