Black Blade

One of my favorite Blue Oyster Cult songs is Black Blade which is about Stormbringer and Elric. I know the band were fans of Michael Moorcock's stories. There is another song, Veteran of the Psychic Wars which is about the Eternal Champion.


  1. Moorcock actually co-wrote Veteran of the Psychic Wars, and has performed onstage with BOC. A great photo can be found at:

  2. That's a trip. I dig the link to the photos!

  3. There's also "The Great Sun Jester" which was inspired by Moorcock's "Messiah at The End of Time." It's on the "Mirrors" album.
