We've all seen SNL's "beyond the music" skit, featuring a parody of BoC's tune, "Don't fear the reaper"... Well, a song popped in my head today during lunch, & I found myself torn. Is it possible, that SNL's desire to spoof BOC's song: "Dont fear The Reaper" is misplaced? I was thinking about this and a Nazareth song, popped into my head. Name of the track was, Hair of the Dog. So, I decided to check it out... & sure enough, Nazareth's Hair of the Dog was released in 1975. And Blue Oyster Cult's The Reaper was released 1 year later... in 1976. In retrospect, we've gotta wonder if BoC was trying to steal Nazareths thunder? Here we are, almost 30 YEARS later, & Blue Oyster Cult is thought of the band that revolutionized the Cowbell. But, do they really deserve the credit? Was Nazareth's notariety circumvented,,, by an SNL skit?
