Continuing with my A to Zed or Zee of Rock bands I like and some I have been lucky enough to see play live. Sorry I never mentioned Black Sabbath or Barclay James Harvest...
BOC were formed in New York in around 1967. They have also used the band title Soft White Underbelly which they sometimes still use when they wish to play small intimate venues.
I was lucky enough to see them at Manchester Apollo in 1989 or was it 88? It was on the Imaginos tour me thinks.
What an amazing Hard Rock band. Watching them play songs like 'Godzilla', 'Joan Crawford' and 'Hot Rails To Hell' had me transfixed. It was a brilliant concert by a brilliant band.
You will probably know their most famous track: "Don't Fear The Reaper". It's supposed to be about drugs and being young and not fearing anything, even death.
Like President Roosevelt once said: " There is nothing to fear but fear itself". I think it's even on the soundtrack to the film "Helloween".
This track reached number 12 in the American Billboard charts and they have sold 25 million records or more. I would be happy to be famous in Iceland or even Asda. 😀Enjoy.
