Formed in San Francisco, BLUE CHEER blew up with its full-on heavy metal version of “Summertime Blues” from the band’s seminal 1968 album, “Vincibus Eruptum.” Pitchforkmedia.com recently wrote that, “The Who ripped these guys off!” Named after a brand of LSD created by Owsley Stanley, BLUE CHEER, then young regulars on the Haight-Ashbury scene, made a name for themselves as the first heavy metal band to be universally called: “The loudest band in the world.” The band epitomized the San Francisco psychedelic sound. They are hailed as the fathers of metal, the godfathers of grunge as well as garage gods.
