Metal Odyssey sends out a very LOUD Happy Birthday to Alan Price, the original keyboard and organ player for The Animals! Alan turned a real cool 67 on April 19th. I cannot ever grow tired of listening to the keyboard majesty that Alan Price bestowed through the music of The Animals. To me, the keyboards are borderline haunting on “The House of The Rising Sun” – quite honestly, besides Eric Burdon on vocals, the keyboard playing of Alan Price made this song a timeless, early Classic Rock masterpiece. This song always seems to be a favorite for many bands to cover – Brand New Sin does what I consider the coolest cover of this tune, which is found on their album “Tequila”, released in 2006.

14393836“We Gotta Get Out of this Place” is yet another totally incredible song that The Animals gave to Rock music. Again, Alan Price is unmistakably brilliant on this song playing keyboard. I find it so amazing that these tunes were created in the mid 1960’s and still have a contagious Rock groove illuminating from them! The 1960’s and 1970’s Rock-Hard Rock eras were profound with establishing the importance of the keyboard and organ, as solid and true Rock music instruments. The Animals were an authentic British Rock band that stakes a mighty claim in the well established roots of Hard Rock and arguably Heavy Metal as well. Alan Price with his keyboard playing, gave The Animals an important element to their overall signature sound. Thank you Alan Price for the ever lasting music you created!
