Allen Lanier: 1946-2013

Blue Öyster Cult founder member Allen Lanier is dead at 67. From the band's official Facebook:

We have extremely sad news to report.

We’ve lost our friend and bandmate Allen Lanier.

Allen succumbed to complications from C.O.P.D.

He is survived by his wife Dory, sister Mary Anne and mother Martha.

Although he retired from touring in 2006 Allen returned to the stage for what turned out to be his final appearance, reuniting with B?C at the 40th Anniversary show in New York this past November.

DFTR sweet man. We love you and miss you.
