    Box in my head is very poppy. There’s some range in the songwriting.

    Cheers,

    I saw your title and thought you meant Boards of Canada.

    Interesting fact: the original vocalist for Blue Oyster Cult was Jeffrey Kagel, who shortly afterwards became Krishna Das after meeting his guru, Neem Karoli Baba (my avatar). Kagel had his share of wilderness years, but eventually wound up playing kirtan, and has become probably the most well-known kirtan singer in the world.

    One of my favorite singers, and a lovely man. Glad he didn't stay with BOC...

    That's like saying The Beatles sound like Oasis. It goes the other way.

    The bass player's an old friend of mine. But he's the 'new guy' who's been with them for years.

    The record sounds good.

    Yes, an excellent album. I’m a fan so was more than a little concerned that it might have been a letdown. It’s not.

    Ever see him play locally on Long Island? I miss seeing him and everyone at the Ritz in Northport.

    How many old boys remain? Many look like young acolytes.

    I've played with him a few times at different jams, and he would show up out of the blue at a few of my shows. I haven't spoken to him in a couple of years now, but I'm about due to run into him somewhere. :)

    Two of them. Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser with the headless guitar and Eric Bloom with the SG. Both of them sang most of the radio hits.
