#MusicMonday REBEL

This is my inaugural post for the weekly “Music Monday” link up.  

Just perfect for a music fanatic like me! 
Today’s offering is about one of my all-time favourites; Eric Burdon, former lead singer of The Animals, (old and new), War and the Eric Burdon Band.   In my opinion he was and, most remarkably, still is at the age of 71, one of the best blues/rock singers in history.

Of course, this was the song that introduced him to the world:

Did I mention Blues? 

Always fun!

On Jan. 29 this year, he released a superb new album,

“Til Your River Runs Dry”

This is so beautiful!

I had the amazing experience of attending an Eric Burdon concert on Feb. 8 (2013). (Drove 4 hours through a blizzard to get there.  Talk about dedication!)  He even passed me in the hotel hallway, but by the time I got over the shock he was down the hall;  singing all the way, I might add.

Got some great photos, though:
