British Invasion concert poster During the 1960s many rock/pop music acts from the UK as well as British culture became popular. Some popular bands included (my all time favorites): The Beatles, The Dave Clark Five, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, and The Who
The Animals - House Of The Rising Sun -1964 - Burdon was lead singer of The Animals, formed during 1962 in Newcastle, England. The original band was the Alan Price Combo which formed in 1958. They became the Animals shortly after Burdon joined the band. They combined electric blues with rock and in the USA were one of the leading bands of the British Invasion.
