My Mideast Punchlines: No Burden for Burdon

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.’

Small FistGood 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.
