Birthplace[edit]

There is no such place as 'Walker-on-Tyne, Northumberland'. Surely this should be Walker, Newcastle upon Tyne which, incidentally, isn't in Northumberland.

Main article amended accordingly. Please sign your comments. Four tildes (4x~) is all that is required. Thank you.

It is now in Tyne and Wear, which was created in 1974. When Burdon was born it was in Northumberland. Jim Michael (talk) 00:37, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Date of birth[edit]

The official site give "1 May 1941". Here it's 11 May 1941". Who's right ? --82.67.156.31 12:34, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Article now correctly amended. Derek R Bullamore 22:01, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Hendrix' "suicide"[edit]

I read a biograsphy of Hendrix and it said that Eric Burdon told a newspaper that Hendrix had intentionally commit suicide, can anyone corroborate this?

In Eric Burdon's biography called "dont let me be misunderstood" i think he wrote about Hendrix being "accidentally" given too many sleeping pills by this parisian girl... He blamed the girl for Hendrix' death, and if im not mistaken the girl was investigated.

Discography[edit]

I added a cleanup tag. The Animals part is confused because it presents a partial mixture of the UK and U.S. sequences. It would really be better just to refer to it with a {{main|The Animals discography}}. The post-War part is very confused, because it mixes Animals reissues with Burdon solo works; it's impossible to tell what's what. Wasted Time R (talk) 21:35, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

External link suggestion: New interview with Eric Burdon[edit]

As an editor at Crawdaddy!, and to comply with COI guidelines, I am not posting the link to this new interview with Eric Burdon. He discusses the various phases of his career, including his time fronting the Animals, WAR, and his present musical endeavors. I would like to recommend the article on its merits, and hope that an editor will find the time to examine it and—if he or she sees fit—post it as an external link on this page. I appreciate your time. Crawdaddy! [1]

Thanks for the message. I've added the link. I couldn't figure out when the interview was published/took place, can you please add that to the external link. Also it looks like some of the info can be incorporated in the article and used as a reference, but I'll let someone else do that. --Omarcheeseboro (talk) 17:39, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I've added the date of publication to the external link. Mike harkin (talk) 22:31, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Great job JTSomers & Tunebroker (and others)[edit]

This entry has improved by leaps and bounds since I visited last September. Eric Burdon deserves it.Haberstr (talk) 19:48, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Cooperation with Carl Carlton and Max Buskohl[edit]

Don't know whether this is of any importance anyway, but there is a wrong link in the section "Bo Diddley" to american musician Carl Carlton. This note rather refers to german guitarist Carl Carlton, whose birth name is Karl Walter Buskohl and who is the father of the mentioned Max Buskohl. There is an article (stub) about Carl Carlton (German Musician), but I didn't manage to change the link. Could anyone take care for that? Besides, I don't see that this has anything to do with "Bo Diddley" and thus should be removed from that section --91.89.49.20 (talk) 12:36, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Too many members[edit]

Please see other bands' articles, as with the Snow Patrol, to add the ultra-numerous list of names of members and former members for a timeline. Otherwise, the article is so sectioned that it's difficult to add photos or sound clips. --Leahtwosaints (talk) 04:07, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

The side-bar with 'former members' seems extremely cluttered, and not really correct - should they really all be regarded as former members of some entity ? -- Beardo (talk) 23:35, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Eggman[edit]

On the page for "I Am The Walrus," the Beatles' song, it suggests that perhaps Eric Burdon (he apparently claims so too), is "The Eggman." It would be nice to see if the editors of this page could clear this up on Burdon's page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.199.100.223 (talk) 17:34, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Pre Animals history?[edit]
