The band had a setback in 1965 when Alan Price left due to fear of flying, and was replaced by Mick Gallagher for a short time, then by Dave Rowberry. By 1966, Burdon had embraced the hippie movement and started using LSD, becoming distant from the rest of the group. John Steel was the next to leave, replaced by Barry Jenkins for the last few singles and albums. The Animals split near the end of 1966 and went their separate ways; Burdon became lead singer of Eric Burdon And The Animals (with Barry Jenkins joining him), as well as the aforementioned War, Alan Price became a folk singer-songwriter and bassist Chas Chandler became famous for discovering and managing Music/JimiHendrix and Music/{{Slade}} in the early 1970s. Chandler died in 1996 of an aortic aneurysm and Dave Rowberry died in 2003 of an ulcer haemorrhage.

Other hits of theirs include "Baby Let Me Take You Home", "I'm Crying", "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", "We've Gotta Get Out Of This Place", "It's My Life", "Inside-Looking Out" and "Don't Bring Me Down". Hits and Fan favourites by Eric Burdon And The Animals include "When I Was Young", "San Franciscan Nights", "Monterey" and "Sky Pilot".

* TheCoverChangesTheGender: "House of the Rising Sun" probably, though the song itself is old enough that it's hard to determine whether the original singer was meant to be male or female.
