Blue Öyster Cult
The Fabulous Thunderbirds
four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans
of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums
loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY--based
band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene
for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies
a unique place in rock history because it's one of very
few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream
critical acclaim as well as commercial success.
The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts
such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1's countdown
of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.
30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have been the quintessential
American band. The group’s distinctive and powerful
sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles, manifested
itself into a unique musical hybrid via such barnburners
as “Tuff Enuff” and “Wrap It Up”.
Co-founder Kim Wilson, the sole original member, still spearheads
the group as it evolves into its newest incarnation.
“The thing about the T-Birds is that they can play
both blues festival and rock venues,” Wilson comments.
They’re a diversified band now and everybody’s
on the same page.
