Blue Oyster Cult Guitarist Allen Lanier Passes Away

He was 67...

Billboard reports that Allen Lanier, a founding member of Blue Oyster Cult who performed with the guitar and keyboard, died from Chronic Obstruction Pulmonary Disease, which affects the lungs. He was 67.

In a statement, the band said: "We've lost our friend and bandmate. DFTR sweet man. We love you and miss you."

Lanier retired from the band in 2006, but returned for an anniversary show last year. He co-founded the group with guitarist Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser, drummer Albert Bouchard, singer Les Braunstein and bassist Andrew Winters in the late 1960s. Eric Bloom replaced Braunstein as the singer and the band went through several names before settling on Blue Oyster Cult in 1971. They were then signed to Columbia Records by Clive Davis. Lanier appeared on all fourteen albums from the band, including their most recent, 2001's Curse of the Hidden Mirror.

Blue Oyster Cult is best known for their songs "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" (peaked at #12 on the Hot 100 in 1976) and "Burnin' For You" (peaked at #40 in 1981). They are still active with Roeser and Bloom still on board.

Bloom released his own statement on Facebook yesterday.

He wrote: "My great friend Allen Lanier has passed. I'll miss the guy even though we hadn't spoken in awhile. He was so talented as a musician and a thinker. He read voraciously, all kinds of things, especially comparative religion. We drove for years together, shared rooms in the early days. We partied, laughed, played. All BOC fans and band members will mourn his death. Ultimately smoking finally got to him. He had been hospitalized with C.O.P.D. It was Allen who heard some old college band tapes of mine and suggested I get a shot as the singer in 1968. A lot of great memories, over 40 years worth. Maybe he's playing a tune with Jim Carroll right now."

Lanier is survived by his wife Dory, sister Mary Anne and mother Martha. 411 would like to give our condolences to his family, friends and fans.

TV psychic Sylvia Browne

TV psychic Sylvia Browne died November 20 at age 77. I would make some morbid joke about how she saw this coming, but Browne had previously predicted that she'd live to age 88.
