Blue Oyster Cult
Thanks to Christopher Walken and "Saturday Night Live," Blue Oyster Cult will always be remembered for two words they never uttered: "More cowbell." But the "thinking-man's metal band" from Long Island was much more than that in the mid-'70s through early '80s, with gothic, mythologically tinged songs such as (of course) '(Don't Fear) the Reaper," "Godzilla," "Burnin' for You," "Red and the Black," "Golden Age of Leather" and "Joan Crawford." And they're still playing venues across the country more than four decades later. Founding members Eric Bloom (lead vocals) and Buck Dharma (guitar) are joined these days by Richie Castellano (keyboards, backing guitars), former Todd Rundgren's Utopia bassist Kasim Sulton and drummer Jules Radino.
