I’m really still a child of the Forties. I still think about it a lot, about the repercussions of armed conflict. Until 1953 we had rationing. We couldn’t buy meat, we couldn’t buy pleasurable goods like cigarettes and sweets. I didn’t starve – my family were lucky – but I knew what it was like standing in line waiting for foodstuffs.Eric Burdon
One of my reasons for living in California is its close proximity to Mexico. The Latin influence is in every corner of the community. My love of Spanish music hasn’t wavered since the ’50s. I could hear the blues voicing from the Flamanco families and I always dig for inspiration in Latin music.Eric Burdon
