There are several prominent men named Stephen Bishop:. (no singles, no samplers, US release dates). Actor Christopher Walken portrayed 1970s mega-rock producer "Bruce Dickinson" who oversaw the fictional recording of "Don't Fear The Reaper." A dissatisfied, somewhat psychotic Dickinson loved the song but insisted he "gotta have more cowbell." As with many SNL skits, lines from the skit became catch phrases, even going so far as to spawn merchandise based on the skit. Blue Öyster Cult was parodied in a 2000 episode of the NBC's famed Saturday Night Live. Former members of the band include:.
The current members of the band are:.  (http://www.spiraling.com/words/umlaut.html). It was suggested to Pearlman by rock critic Richard Meltzer. The umlaut on the "O" in their name started the trend for using the "heavy metal umlaut" in band names.
Although Blue Öyster Cult is an experimental band, psychedelic may not be a correct descriptive term. They are still playing in the 21st century. At a time when the genre seemed tired and old-fashioned, Blue Öyster Cult released records that combined powerful music and intelligent and funny lyrics. They became a successful heavy metal band during the 1970s.
The band changed its name to the Stalk Forrest Group in 1968, then to the Blue Oyster Cult in 1970 (the umlaut was added later). The members of the band began to come together in the mid-1960s on Long Island, New York as a band called "Soft White Underbelly", at the prompting of critic Sandy Pearlman. Their song "Veteran of the Psychic Wars", with lyrics penned by Michael Moorcock, appeared in the soundtrack of the movie Heavy Metal. Blue Öyster Cult is a psychedelic/heavy metal band probably best known for their 1976 single "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" from Agents Of Fortune, and for the 1981 single "Burning For You" from Fire of Unknown Origin.
