On Tuesday night the Roxy Theater filled with boomers who cut their teeth on songs like We Gotta Get Out of This Place and Spill the Wine, were ready to take a nostalgic trip back to an era when songs reflected the angst and rebellion of a generation who would come to change the world.
Eric Burdon, considered one of rocks most distinctive male vocalists and prolific songwriter, is mostly known for his work with The Animals and War. Now in his 70s, he continues to tour and write music, with a new album entitled 'Til Your River Runs Dry a collection of superbly crafted songs with deep rooted lyrics.
Backed by a stellar group of musicians, Burdon performed all the familiar classics along with a tribute to his friend and hero Bo Diddley and a masterful new song called “Water” from his 2013 release. Red Young provided awesome keys and organ along with expert guitar work by Billy Watts, Tony Braunagel on drums, Terry Wilson on bass and Wally Ingram on percussion
