Eric Bloom - Blue Oyster Cult Live at Medina, MN 01/29/16

Many thanks to my always-in-the-know friend Mark for sending over the link to this recently published, very cool interview that Blue Oyster Cult guitarist/vocalist Eric Bloom did with the Boston Rock/Talk podcast.

Bloom discusses some of the history of Blue Oyster Cult throughout the years, as well as his own latest incarnation in J.K. Rowling's new novel "A Career of Evil." Coming in at nearly 45 minutes, this is do not miss stuff if you consider yourself an BOC fan of any kind.

I wasn't there but a few friends of mine made it out to this show and shared some memories.

Autographed Megadeth t-shirt (Title Wave St. Louis Park - Sean Sauder Collection)

Flamin' Oh's drummer Sean Sauder was kind enough to share this photo of his circa-1985 Megadeth "Killing Is My Business..." tour t-shirt autographed by the entire band. Earlier on the day of the Alice Cooper/ Megadeth show, Megadeth did and in-store appearance at Title Wave Books and Records in St. Louis Park, MN. Sean says "David Ellefson and I grew up in the same small town in southern MN (Jackson) and he is a super nice guy. The Heineken was flowing pretty freely at the in-store!"

I still haven't turned up an ad for the Megadeth in-store at Title Wave, but I'm sure I'll come across a copy of it at some point. When I do, I'll add it here.

Another friend, KLKK-FM and KIOW-FM radio DJ Mark Skaar shares his memory of the show: "I saw that show the night before in Des Moines, IA and met all the guys after the show outside and on the bus. Later, a friend and I went to a local bar and who should come in but a very drunk Dave Mustaine. He told us he'd put us on the guest list for the Saint Paul show. So...we drove home, slept and then drove to Minnesota and...we weren't on the guest list."

And finally, our pal Kevin Moose shares this: "I was there! Well, my body was there. And the people I went with told me it was a awesome show!" (We know exactly how that is Kevin - we've got a few of those kind of shows stored in our own "foggy memories" file.)
