Barry Jenkins

Colin Ernest "Barry" Jenkins (born 22 December 1944, Leicester, England) is an English musician, who is best known for being a drummer for The Animals during both of that 1960s group's incarnations.[1]

Jenkins replaced Roger Groome as the drummer for the British R&B based group The Nashville Teens in 1963. In 1964 the group had its first big hit record with "Tobacco Road". Jenkins also was present on their other top ten hit "Google Eye", as well as their lesser hits "The Little Bird", "The Hard Way", and "Find My Way Back Home".

In March 1966, the original drummer John Steel left the band The Animals after the release of their hit single "Inside-Looking Out". Jenkins joined the band for the albums Animalism and Animalization, and for the hit singles "Don't Bring Me Down" and "See See Rider". Jenkins’s predecessor Roger Groome rejoined The Nashville Teens as their drummer.

The first incarnation of The Animals was dissolved in September 1966. Animals lead singer Eric Burdon then formed "Eric Burdon & The (New) Animals", with Jenkins as the only other holdover from the previous line-up. Along with studio musicians, the two recorded the album, Eric Is Here featuring "Help Me Girl" (also released as a single and a minor hit in both the UK and the US). In mid October 1966, a real new group formed under this title, again with Jenkins as drummer, which became a practitioner of psychedelic rock. It released a series of albums and hit singles, the latter including "When I Was Young", "San Franciscan Nights", "Monterey", "Ring Of Fire", "Good Times", and "Sky Pilot". This second incarnation of The Animals disbanded by 1969. In 1971, Jenkins played on the B.B. Blunder album, Workers Playtime, along with Brian Auger.[2]

After the break up of the Animals, Jenkins played on an album produced by L.A.W. (Leon "Buddy" Walters), Earth Light Music 1975 BMI, called A Letter Home.

Jenkins now manages a guitar shop in Ramsgate, England.
