Blue Oyster Cult

(TeamRock Radio) Veteran rock producer Sandy Pearlman has died at the age of 72. He suffered a brain hemorrhage in December last year, leaving him "unable to walk, talk or fully comprehend his circumstances" prompting his longtime friend Robert Duncan to set up a GoFundMe page to help cover care costs.

Duncan confirmed Pearlman's death via his Facebook page, saying: "Sandy Pearlman, poet, writer, songwriter, producer, manager, professor, polymath, visionary, passed peacefully, surrounded by love, at 12:30am, July 26, 2016, in Marin County, California. A celebration of his exceptional life will be announced later."

Pearlman was best known for producing nine Blue Oyster Cult albums and a co-producing credit on the band's trademark track (Don't Fear) The Reaper in 1976. Read more here.
