and my only prescription is more cowbell.


Fellas, you gotta have that cowbell on the track.



I am Bruce Dickinson, yes, the Bruce Dickinson.

Needs More Cow Bell is greater than all.



A few friends of mine and myself will be performing this skit at our band concert at Taravella High in December.

Announcer: After a series of staggering defeats, Blue Oyster Cult assembled in the recording studio in late 1976 for a session with famed producer Bruce Dickinson. And, luckily for us, the cameras were rolling.


Bruce Dickinson: Alright, guys, I think we're ready to lay this first track down. By the way, my name is Bruce Dickinson. Yes, the Bruce Dickinson. And I gotta tell you: fellas.. you have got what appears to be a dynamite sound!


Eric Bloom: Coming from you, Bruce, that means a lot.


Buck Dharma: Yeah. I mean, you're Bruce Dickinson!


Alan: It's incredible!


Bobby: I can't believe Bruce Dickinson digs our sound!


Bruce Dickinson: Easy, guys.. I put my pants on just like the rest of you - one leg at a time. Except, once my pants are on, I make gold records. [ the group laughs ] Alright, here we go. "Don't Fear the Reaper" - take one. [ exits into the control booth ]


[ the group begins the song. Bobby slaps the drums, Eric jams his guitar, and Gene bangs on a cowbell. ]


Eric: [ distracted by Gene banging the cowbell ] Okay! Wait! Wait! [ the group cuts off their instruments ] Bruce, could you come in here for a minute, please?


Bruce Dickinson: [ stepping out of the booth ] That was gonna be a great track. Guys, what's the deal?


Eric: Are you sure that was sounding okay?


Bruce Dickinson: I'll be honest.. fellas, it was sounding great. But.. I could've used a little more cowbell. So.. let's take it again.. and, Gene.


Gene Frenkle: Yeah?


Bruce Dickinson: Really explore the studio space this time. I mean, really.. explore the space. I like what I'm hearing.


[ the group starts the song again, as Gene bangs more wildly onto the cowbell ]


Eric: Okay, wait! Stop! I'm sorry. Bruce, could you come back in here, please?


Bruce Dickinson: [ stepping out of the booth ] Fellas.. now, we just wasted two good tracks! That last one was even better than the first!


Eric: Well, it's just that I find Gene's cowbell playing distracting! If I'm the only one, I'll shut up.


Buck Dharma: It was pretty rough..


Gene Frenkle: You know, I could pull back a little. If you'd like.


Bruce Dickinson: Not too much, though! Fellas, I'm telling you - you're gonna want that cowbell on the track!


Gene Frenkle: You know what? It's fine. Let's just do this thing.


[ the band starts the song once more, with Gene banging the cowbell right next to Eric's ear ]


Eric: [ stopping the song again, fighting Gene ] Come on, people!


Bruce Dickinson: [ running out of the booth again ] That.. that doesn't work for me. I gotta have more cowbell!


Alan: Don't blow this for us, Gene!


Bobby: Quit being so selfish, Gene!


Gene Frenkle: Can I just say one thing? I'm standing here, staring at Bruce Dickinson! And if Bruce Dickinson wants more cowbell, we should probably give him more cowbell! And, Bobby, you are right - I am being selfish. But the last time I checked, we don't have a lot of songs that feature the cowbell.


Bruce Dickinson: I gotta have more cowbell, baby!


Gene Frenkle: I'll be doing myself a disservice, and everybody in this band, if I don't perform the hell out of this.


Bruce Dickinson: Guess what? I got a fever! And the only prescription.. is more cowbell!


Gene Frenkle: Thanks, Bruce. But I think, maybe if I just leave.. and, maybe I'll come back later, and we can lay down the cowbell. [ starts to leave the studio ]


Bruce Dickinson: Aw, baby..


Eric: Gene, wait! Why don't you lay down that cowbell right now. With us. Together.


[ everyone agrees ]


Gene Frenkle: Do you mean that, Eric?


Buck Dharma: He speaks for all of us.


Gene Frenkle: Thank you.


Bruce Dickinson: Babies.. before we're done here.. y'all are gonna be wearing gold-plated diapers.


Alan: What does that mean?


Bruce Dickinson: Never question, Bruce Dickinson! Roll it! [ exits back to booth ]


Eric: [ ready to lay the complete track down ] 1, 2, 3, 4.


[ the band starts up again. Close-up on Gene as he bangs the cowbell to freeze-frame with graphic: "In Memorium: Gene Frenkle: 1950-2000" ]
