Allen Glover Lanier dies

2013-08-15 by Robert Davis CONTRIBUTOR | 26 Comments
Allen Glover Lanier, an original member of Blue Oyster Cult who played both keyboards and rhythm guitar has died. Although Lanier had officially retired from touring in 2006, he reunited and performed with Blue Oyster Cult last November to commemorate the band's 40th Anniversary in New York.

Prior to his death Lanier had been dealing with C.O.P.D (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), which is a lung disease resulting in the breakdown of lung tissue and dysfunction of the small airways. Thoughts are with his former and current bandmates, friends and family.

RIP Allen Glover Lanier (June 25, 1946-August 15, 2013).

More cowbell was well played, some people just don't have a sense of humor when it comes to death I suppose. Either way, RIP.
