On my Google news alert for Alan Price, I was sent a link to a discussion on the Eric Burdon board, where someone asked, "Why do we never hear more about Alan Price?" The comments after that were so hateful -- about how Alan had cheated his bandmates out of the House of the Rising Sun money, saying he quit the band so he could run away with the money, saying that the other Animals should have sued him, etc. hno: You know, the Animals are all grown-ups and perfectly capable of handling their own business affairs. They must have settled this grievance long ago, or they wouldn't have reunited twice. I just wish Eric Burdon hadn't fanned the flames in his autobiography or memoir or whatever book that was. It's so incredibly petty for him to be harping on this issue still. And I wish those Burdon fans would stop for one minute and give Alan the benefit of the doubt. I've heard Alan's account of this many times, and he convinces me that he never intended to screw anybody else out of their fair rewards. If he was the sort of fellow who'd ruthlessly steal other people's work, he'd have done it many more times since then. Furthermore, those internet "fans" go on to trash the quality of Alan's work, to say he must have been wrong because Eric is famous and look where Alan is today. :whut: Really, and they call themselves music lovers?
