Albert Bouchard grew up in the 1000 Islands
NY and started his first band, The Regal Tones, with his brother
and three cousins when he was 12 years old. By the time he graduated
from high school he had played over 500 shows. In college he started
a band with fellow classmate, Donald Roeser. After a couple years
Bouchard and Roeser dropped out to become professional musicians.
The next band they started evolved into Blue Öyster Cult.
Albert played with BÖC for over a decade, during which they
sold millions of records and played thousands of shows all over
the world. In 1983 Albert set out on his own recording solo records,
producing several younger musicians and going back to school to
earn bachelor and masters degrees. In 1990 he produced a tape
for some friends with Deborah Frost and the project was called
Rocket Science by the Brain Surgeons. The friends, several of
which were in the music business, who heard this tape encouraged
Bouchard and Frost to put this tape out on their own and so in
1993 the Brain Surgeons and Cellsum Records came to be.
