Album: Blue Cheer - "Vincebus Eruptum" 1968 ... RIP Dickie Peterson

"Dickie Peterson, the bassist/vocalist and founding member of BLUE CHEER, passed away Monday morning (October 12) at 5 a.m. in Germany. He was 61 years old. Peterson had reportedly been battling prostate and liver cancer, and according to BLUE CHEER`s message board, had developed a fatal infection following a surgical procedure to help alleviate his fight.

This is very sad news indeed. In memory of Dickie Peterson here is Blue Cheer's debut album "Vincebus Eruptum". I probably don't need to say anything more, as legendary as this album and Blue Cheer have come to be.
