British musician, an organist, one of the most popular in London for his club act by 1994.

Born in Fairfield, County Durham to a working class family, he was raised in the Newcastle area. As a teenager, he assembled a group called the "Alan Price Combo" to play at local clubs and dances. During 1962-63 they became the No.1 pop music group in Newcastle, a featured act at the Club-a-Go-Go.

They changed their name to the "Animals" and made a London debut in late 1963 with a radio debut on 12/27/1963. Their first single did not get much attention but the second, "House of the Rising Sun" became a major hit in the UK, leading to a U.S. British tour with Chuck Berry, beginning in August 1964. Their superstar status ended up being a short gig due to drug use which led to their disbanding by the late '60s.

In the '90s, Price was playing small club gigs in the London area as "Alan Price and the Electric Blues Co."
