JOE BOUCHARD is best known as the bassist of BLUE ÖYSTER CULT from their debut self-titled album in 1972 to their 1988 opus Imaginos. After his departure Bouchard went on to form BLUE COUPE with his brother Albert Bouchard and Dennis Dunaway (ALICE COOPER). He’s released several solo albums, and is currently touring with his brother as THE BOUCHARD BROTHERS. JOE BOUCHARD’s latest solo album is American Rocker. It was released on June 3, 2022.
