in a statement, Mr Burdon’s management, said: “We’ve been receiving mounting pressure, including numerous threatening emails, daily. The last thing I intend do is put Eric in jeopardy.” The nature of the threats is unclear, but according to Israel Radio this morning, Mr Burdon was not willing to risk his life to come to Israel.I can understand a person fearing for their safety given the reporting on Israel but I don't understand why these management people haven't published the threats or complained to the police.
Also, The Independent managed to open its article with a major howler.
He once sang, ‘You Gotta Get Outta This Place,’ but now Eric Burdon is not even turning up at all having deciding to withdraw from a planned concert in IsraelThe song was We Gotta Get Out of This Place . Maybe the word "we" got nabbed for all that Royal nonsense.
Eric Burdon was just about to be on BBC Radio Scotland but not a word about Israel. Maybe they were too scared.
