Eric Burdon performing Water at the State Theatre, New Brunswick NJ

Recently, I had the good fortune to photograph one of the all time classic voices....Eric Burdon. You may better know him as the lead singer of The Animals. Even though decades have passed since the release of The House of the Rising Sun, it was a thrill to hear him sing it live. With the soul and emotions that the years and life experiences have brought to Mr. Burdon, i think the song is performed now better than ever. If you ever get a chance to see him perform, don't pass on the chance.
