"More Cowbell" Video

Reading my daily round of blogs today, there was an obscure reference to a "cowbell" which linked to this site, which contains a classic video of Saturday Night Live. The SNL skit revolves around the Blue Oyster Cult and features Christopher Walken as Bruce Dickinson and Will Ferrell as Gene Frenkle - a fictional character in charge of the cow bell (actually handled by BOC singer Eric Bloom).

What's Next?
