Blue Oyster Cult’s Eric Bloom has 73 candles on his birthday cake today. While working at a Sam Ash Music store in 1968, a local band that had a pretty good following came into the store and Eric struck up a conversation with them. The band was called Soft White Underbelly. They liked him enough to offer Eric a job as their tour manager. In 1969 the lead singer left the band and they asked Eric to become the singer. By 1971, the band changed their name to Blue Oyster Cult.
Eric has been with the band ever since.
Ever hear anyone sing “Don’t fear the reefer??” We have.
Happy Birthday Eric!!!
