Together with Eric Burdon, Bryan "Chas" Chandler, John Steel and Hilton Valentine, British entertainer Alan Price was a member of the popular '60s rock group The Animals. The group was originally named the Alan Price Combo when it was formed in 1963, but as vocalist Eric Burdon became center of attention with such song hits as "House of the Rising Sun," the keyboard-playing Price was shunted to second billing. In 1965, Price broke away from the Animals to perform solo, scoring a success with his take on Randy Newman's "Simon Smith and the Dancing Bear." On occasion, Alan Price has shown up on film, notably in O Lucky Man (1972), for which he also wrote the score, and Alfie Darling (1975), a dispensable sequel to Alfie (1966) with Price taking over the part originated by Michael Caine.
