Forty years in the business...six gold & platinum U.S.
albums...classic songs like (Don'tFear) The Reaper, Godzilla,
Burnin' For You, Astronomy and E.T.I. Donald "BuckDharma" Roeser,
Eric Bloom, Allen Lanier, Albert Bouchard & Joe Bouchard
comprised one of the great stadium acts of the '70s & '80s. BOC
were heavy enough to duke it out with Kiss, Rush, Aerosmith, Ted
Nugent & Black Sabbath, yet smart, funny, ironic & jaded
enough to please the tough New York critics.Agents of Fortune
examines the complicated early days of the band, graphically
demonstrating the showbiz sweat that goes into making a successful
act. The book is centred around the peerless intellectual quality
of the songs - made entertaining by the band's psychotropic &
ghoulish humour; its interest in all manner of conspiracy theories,
cults, monsters, vampires, UFOs, foul play, arcane spiritualism,
alchemy, love lost & love buried, science fiction &
friction.Popoff draws on his personal interviews with Roeser,
Bloom, Albert & Joe Bouchard, along with drummer Bobby
Rondinelli, legendary band producer Murray Krugman & BOC expert
Bolle Gregmar. For insight into the band's fantastic lyrical world,
Popoff went right to the source, the writers of the BOC classics
highlighting their creativity through the author's countless
interviews with Sandy Pearlman (manager during the golden years),
Richard Meltzer, John Shirley, cover artists Greg Scott and
Ioannis, as well as the late Helen Wheels and David Roter. An
essential read for Blue Oyster Cult devotees.
