The co-founder and guitarist of the Blue Öyster Cult, Allen Lanier, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 67. He was battling lung disease.

Posted on August 14, 2013 to the band's website:

“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 BÖC at the 40th Anniversary show in New York this past November.

DFTR sweet man. We love you and miss you.”
