"Spill the Wine" by Eric Burdon (former lead singer of the Animals) and War was a 1970 hit from the album Eric Burdon Declares War. It was War's first charting hit, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Birthday Boy Fun Fact: Eric was very good friends with John Lennon... and claims to be the Eggman in The Beatles' "I am the Walrus".

Birthday Boy Fun Fact #2: For the very detailed Eggman story (spoiler: it involves an egg and a naked Eric Burdon!), look it up on Wikipedia!
