John Steel of The Animals (Audio Interview)


“I’m beginning to have second thoughts about this…”

From release: The Animals announce their 60th Anniversary “We Gotta Get Out of This Place” – The band’s Final Tour of Australia The Animals’ impact and influence is undeniable. They created some of the most iconic songs in popular music history including – ‘We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place’, ‘The House of The Rising Sun’, ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’, ‘It’s My Life’, ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’ and ‘Boom Boom’ and more all of which will be performed on this Greatest Hits Final Tour. The Animals were “one of the most important bands” in the British Invasion. The Beatles and Rolling Stones were the headliners, whilst The Animals were the backbone of blues!
