The Animals Formed in Newcastle between 1962 and 1963 when Tyne during and Eric Burdon joined Alan Price Rhythm and Blues Combo. They were called "animals" because they had a wild stage act and the name stuck. The Animals have been very successful over their career and have had a lot of hits over their life time.
