'Don't Fear The Reaper', however I always felt it needed 'some more cowbell.'

'No, I don't have any Blue Oyster Cult!'

We have a 'useless information' book that says BOC was first known as Soft White Underbelly. They wanted a new identity after getting a bad review. The name Blue Oyster Cult came from a poem their manager wrote about a collection of aliens who gathered to guide Earth's history.

Someone put their symbol on a concrete wall at a grammer school I went to in the late 70's. I didn't know what it was, but thought it was quite mystical.

I'm living for giving the devil his due.
