Eric Bloom is a personal friend, I have known him for close to 20 years. Eric was working at a music store in Long Island in the 70's when the just forming BOC stopped in to look at some gear. Eric was their salesman and he became a founding member of the group on the spot.
Eric is known for his unusual Blue Oyster Cult Logo Guitars. I will be posting some of them here soon. I will also be building them starting in 2003. The will be built under the Abstract name. Contact me for info, I have original signed models available. Pictures will be posted as soon as several trademarks are locked up (so stay tuned).
Lead Vocalist Eric Bloom's distinctive vocals are the personality and power that drives Blue Öyster Cult's harder-hitting songs.
On stage, Eric is a busy man... not only is he lead vocalist, he also handles both rhythm guitar and keyboards as needed.
Eric's songwriting efforts comprise some of Blue Öyster Cult's best songs. His collaborations with Science Fiction Writer Michael Moorcock brought to light three excellent songs, "The Great Sun Jester," "Black Blade" and "Veteran of the Psychic Wars." and more recently, on the Club Ninja album, Eric recruited novelist Eric Van Lustbader for the song "Shadow Warrior." "The Old Gods Return" and "Eye of the Hurricane" are standout Eric tracks on the new album, Curse of the Hidden Mirror.
