Blue Oyster Cult Founding Keyboardist/Guitarist Allen Lanier Dead at 67

Allen Lanier, a founding member of Blue Oyster Cult, has died at 67 after being hospitalized with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, according to the band’s Facebook page. “DFTR sweet man,” reads the post — an obvious reference to the band's biggest hit, "Don’t Fear the Reaper." “We love you and miss you.”
