Played keyboards in the Animals in the early Sixties, later went solo. Recorded the soundtrack for "Oh Lucky Man! (Less than 30 minutes, please correct me if I am mistaken.)
Appeared in the Bob Dylan 1965 film "Don't Look Back".
From: Ricky Cobb (email@example.com) Date: Mon, Jul 20, 1998 05:17 EDT Whatever happened to pianist/keyboardist Alan Price, who was featured prominently in Don't Look Back? Every time I watch that film, I wonder if the poor guy drank himself to death. If anyone knows, pass along the info please. Thank ya much.

All this aside, Price was a tremendous talent, and it is truely sad to see him in that condition during the film. your friend Helios66
Subject: Re: Whatever happened to Alan Price? From: Peter Stone Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) Date: Tue, 21 Jul 1998 00:46:59 -0400 Price went on to write the brilliant soundtrack for as well as appear in the Lindsay Anderson movie "Oh Lucky Man" which is one of the great soundtracks of all time. It is also an incredible movie as well. He followed that with an excellent album on Warners (or Reprise) called "Between Today & Yesterday." I was lucky enough to see him perform songs from both in a no longer existant club in Philly called the Bijou Cafe. The club wasn't exactly big to begin with and Price's band was augmented by players from the Philadelphia Orchestra who were playing from seats the audience usually sat in.
