Eric Burdon, the 60s rock star, has arrived in Israel to clear the air about his show’s earlier cancellation.
‘It was not my decision to cancel the show; it was my manager’s, who as a result of a lot of threatening emails she received, was genuinely afraid for my life,’ he said.
‘I’m not afraid to perform here and I am very happy to be back in Israel.’
Good for you, Eric. Probably only us grey-haired baby-boomers remember you as the lead singer of the Animals. What’s in a name? The real animals are those who sent those disgusting emails, although on the other hand that’s giving real animals a bad name. May your performing in Israel prove to be a heavy burden for those wishing ill of you – and us.
