Blue Oyster Cult, Playing Along With “More Cowbell”
Washington Post – There was something missing the other night when Blue Oyster Cult, the ’70s stadium rockers, kicked into their signature song, “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper,” in a gig at the Rams Head Tavern in Annapolis…
Yes, it’s true, the imfamous song “The Reaper” by the Blue Oyster Cult needs more cowbell. But what’s even more humorous is reading this Washington Post news story which gives the entire history of how the cowbell track got put into the song, how it holds the song together, how there is no Gene Frenkle, how Bruce Dickinson had nothing to do with the song. It’s a good read if you’ve got a few minutes.
Oh and by the way, don’t you think that this blog posting could use some more cowbell? 😀
