Albert Bouchard

When I was a teen, I had a band with my brother, Joe. In college, I formed a band with Don Roeser that became Blue Öyster Cult.  I left BOC in 1982. I went back to college and got my BA in music and MA in English Literacy. In 2016, President Barack Obama honored me at the White House as an outstanding educator. In 2008, I formed a band with Joe and Alice Cooper bass player Dennis Dunaway, called Blue Coupe.

Drum Roll Please

You’re going to want more cowbell

When originally composing we were looking to use some cowbell, and who not better to bang on the bell than Albert Bouchard of Blue Oyster Cult. A sound like Mountain’s “Mississippi Queen” came to mind, but we rolled with the drums and rhythm bombs dropped.

The Lead Is Mine

Every coin has two sides

Listen to “Ready Set Go” vs. “Stopped Red Handed” for both sides of the race. I sat wondering when does the reader/listener have the opportunity to jump into the heads of two characters in the midst of their conflict. I mean really hear their inner voices call the race.

  Several years ago I performed on the Grand Ole Opry with Charlie Louvin from the Louvin Brothers. I came to love the Louvin sound. When I wrote Dear Mr. Varney, I decided to recreate that old fashion sound that Charlie and Ira produced that  was so simple and yet so effective.

When Johnny Cash started out with The Tennessee Two, which was Luther Perkins on the electric guitar and Marshall Grant. They went to Sun Records to record and almost half apologized for their simple bare bones sound but Sam Phillips knew that their sound was special.

A shout out to the Delta Blues. Recorded for the soon to be released eBook set to songs, "The Garden Raid" by John W. Nassivera. The song tells the story of a group of friends playing a game of cat and mouse with a ghostly old man and his demon dog.

Giving is a true confession

A gift of our hearts’ expression

Of love in our possession

Breaking the chain of oppression

In the studio recording 

There are days when I choose the wider path

But the road seems to narrow to the left 

So, I go back to the place where I should start

'Cause I Am Living With An Open Heart
