As someone who bought a copy of Blue Oyster Cult's Agents of Fortune, when he was 12, and a fan of SNL in the 70's and 80's back when... well, we don't need to get into it - you know. Anyway, as someone who enjoys comedy and classic rock, I have one question, a question that I really would like answered before I die:
What the hell is up with the cowbell sketch?
Honestly. I just don't see how the fact that there's a cowbell in "Don't Fear the Reaper" warrants a five minute sketch, much less one that many consider a "classic." So many people think this is hysterical, and I just don't get it.
Please, please, will someone explain it to me?
