Blue Oyster Cult
Spanning three decades, Blue Öyster Cult has a long and storied history, including hits such as “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper”, “Godzilla” and “Burnin’ for You”. The band has sold over 24 million albums worldwide, including 7 million in the United States alone. They got their start in the late ’60s on Long Island, New York, as the Soft White Underbelly, but each member had been involved in bands previously in high school and college, before ending up in the “right place at the right time” to create the beginnings of Blue Öyster Cult.

Robby Krieger of The Doors
Krieger’s energetic fingerstyle approach to the electric guitar, broad musical tastes, and songwriting helped establish the Doors as a successful rock band in the 1960’s and beyond. As the guitarist, and arguably the band’s secret weapon, he wrote or co-wrote many of the band’s songs, including “Light My Fire”, “Love Me Two Times”, “Touch Me”, and “Love Her Madly”. Krieger has performed alongside band members from Blue Oyster Cult, Oingo Boingo, The Black Crowes, Fuel, The Cult and Gov’t Mule. Rolling Stone has named him one of the 100 best guitarists of all time. Visit Robby Krieger’s website.
Still touring today, Vanilla Fudge retains their dynamic, psychedelic sound that helped them rise to stardom in the 1960’s. The band successfully covered of “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” by The Supremes, warping the song into a slowed-down, hard rocking version that put them in the Top 10. The band has been cited as “one of the few American links between psychedelia and what soon became heavy metal.” In 2007, they went back into the studio to record a cover of Out Through the In Door, the acclaimed Led Zeppelin album. Vanilla Fudge has been featured on hit TV shows such as Mad Men and The Sopranos. Most recently, the band returned to TV with a appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, who called them “a legendary rock ‘n’ roll band who are still as heavy as ever.”
