This is the official site of Albert Bouchard. There are some other Abert Bouchards out there on the web but this the site for Albert Bouchard, the musician. I played and wrote songs for Blue Oyster Cult and have been involved in many other groups and projects that I am proud to be associated with. I continue to make records and write songs as well as do as many gigs as I can fit into my schedule. I update this website from time to time so come back every month or so to see what the latest mischief I've gotten myself into.

2020 was weird with the pandemic disaster but I put my quarantine time to good use, recording a mostly acoustic version of my legendary record Imaginos. The record features myself and David Hirschberg playing and singing most of the parts but we also had help from Nashville guitar virtuoso, RJ Ronquillo, Joe Bouchard, Ace Bouchard, Greg Holt, Ross The Boss, Mookie Thomas, Vaughn Burton and Imaginos alum Doctor Jack Rigg. Re Imaginos was released on November 6, 2020, on brother Joe and my record label, Rockheart Records in partnership with DEKO records. It entered the Billboard charts at #97 to universal acclaim.
