Old Habits Die Hard 6. Bo Diddley Special 7. In the Ground 8. River is Rising Medicine Man Invitation to the White House Before You Accuse Me. He kept touring, kept recording, but was decidedly underneath the radar until Bruce Springsteen made him a centerpiece of his South by Southwest keynote address, inviting the veteran rocker to share the stage with him later that night. Suddenly, Burdon was pushed into the spotlight and he capitalized upon his raised profile, cutting a quick and dirty indie EP with Cincinnati rockers the Greenhornes and then re-upping with Abkco home of the Animals catalog for 's 'Til Your River Runs Dry, his first high-profile record in eons and his first album of largely original material since At this late stage, Burdon isn't seeking reinvention -- he sticks to his basics, including two salutes to his hero Bo Diddley one a cover; one a tribute -- but he doesn't sound stale, either.
He's engaging in the present by relying on his tradition, reviving the menacing minor-key rock of the Animals, touching upon a bit of War's multi-cultural funk, indulging his love of the blues, all while reflecting on mortality, waging a bit of social protest, recognizing that "Old Habits Die Hard," resisting the temptation to go gently into that good night.
Burdon doesn't sound like a young man but he does sound invigorated, sometimes singing so passionately he teeters on the edge of self-parody, but that's the appeal of 'Til Your River Runs Dry: Burdon pours everything into this album, as if he realizes this is his last best shot to get the credit he's due.

Burdon describes his early school years as a "dark nightmare" that "should've been penned by Charles Dickens. During primary school, he was "stuck at the rear of the classroom of around 40 to 50 kids and received constant harassment from kids and teachers alike". He goes on to say his primary school was "jammed between a slaughterhouse and a shipyard on the banks of the Tyne. Some teachers were sadistic — others pretended not to notice — and sexual molestation and regular corporal punishment with a leather strap was the order of the day".
By the time he got to secondary school, a teacher by the name of Bertie Brown was responsible for getting him into art school and changing his life forever. There he first met John Steel the original drummer for the Animals. He also met a lot of other "young rebels" who shared his interest in jazz , folk , and movies.
Burdon started out his young adult life as one of a bunch of people who hung out at the local jazz club, The Downbeat. He describes his friends as "like a motorcycle gang Burdon and fellow rocker and guitarist, American Jimi Hendrix became very close friends in the mid sixties and remained so up until Hendrix's death in ; Burdon was in fact the person Hendrix's girlfriend called when she found him overdosed on drugs.
I was up early one morning cooking breakfast, naked except for my socks, and she slid up beside me and slipped an amyl nitrite capsule under my nose. As the fumes set my brain alight and I slid to the kitchen floor, she reached to the counter and grabbed an egg, which she cracked into the pit of my belly. The white and yellow of the egg ran down my naked front and Sylvia began to show me one Jamaican trick after another.
I shared the story with John at a party at a Mayfair flat one night with a handful of others. Burdon was lead singer of the Animals , formed during in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Steel was a member in the band's heyday and left in , before the band split up three years later; he later played in various reunion versions of the band with Burdon. Burdon still toured as Eric Burdon and the Animals, but was prevented from using the name "the Animals" in Britain while the case was under appeal.
On 9 September Burdon's appeal was allowed, with him then entitled to use the band name in the UK. On 10 May , the night before Burdon's 77th birthday, he and the Animals played to a packed house at the Lynn Memorial Auditorium in Lynn, Massachusetts.
