Don’t Fear the Reaper

January 12th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Art, Gaming, Misc.

Tomorrow, I’m spending the day in our local recording studio with Blue Öyster Cult - as the kids say - “laying down a track”. Their lead singer is a fan of our game and wanted to come hang out, talk shop and make some music with our studio band, The Hamtouchers. So that’s what we’re doing.

This is yet another example of just how bizarre my life has become.

    I will give you CASH MONEY if you can somehow work the phrase “more cowbell” into the conversation.

    No cash money needed!

    On Spinal Tap:

    They found it hilarious. 99% of the stuff in the movie has happened to them at some point or another. In addition, they apparently played with Spinal Tap at Ronnie James Dio’s “Hearing Aid” event (the heavy metal “Live Aid”, apparently) and got along wonderfully.

    On the SNL bit:

    Again, they loved it. It reintroduced them to a new era of fans and they’ve been touring more regularly ever since.

    On the cowbell in general:

    They are very pro-cowbell, going so far as to sell BOC “Got Cowbell?” shirts at their shows. Apparently, there was an in-band argument about who ACTUALLY played the cowbell originally.
