Eric Burdon: Tabacco [sic] Road
Sometimes a game is played in muso conversations where the girls are asked: "Would you have been a Beatles or a Stones girl?" (The understanding is that the bad girls supposedly preferred the Stones, the actual music being neither here nor there.) Not me: I'd have been an Animals girl, just for Eric Burdon. The best voice by far, along with a 'joli laid' edgy sexiness. Grrr.
You know, there is a rumour that Eric was the "eggman" of the Beatles' I am The Walrus, thanks to his supposed penchant for breaking eggs over naked girls' bodies. I guess we'll never know.
