An Animal on Air

The Animals in 2013. This is their latest incarnation and John Steel, the drummer, is in the foreground, 2nd from the right.

A fun interview with a really interesting man who had stories to tell – the original drummer of the Animals, John Steel, joined me on a show I presented on BBC Sussex & BBC Surrey. We talked Jimi Hendrix, human “tigers” in NYC, being carried off stage, their hits and their legacy. I started by asking him how he was feeling about his imminent tour:

Part 1: John Steel talks about Jimi Hendrix and the importance of The Animals to musical history.

Part 2: John Steel talks about The Animals taking on America, NYC and odd American PR stunts.
