Topic starter

I just found out that Brad Delp, lead singer of Boston died tonight, no causes or reasons given.

I can't tell you how many copies of their first two albums I wore out, I also understand that he was a really nice guy.

A real loss for all! :cry:

I found out on Yahoo....

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming......
like the passengers in his car.

That's sad. I didn't know they did more than two albums either; they never really took off over here after "More Than A Feeling"

I'm a Diehard BOSTON fan. When I saw that link on Yahoo! all I could say was Oh My God.

Here's the link to the SHORT article.

I feel this loss almost as much as I miss Jeff Porcaro from TOTO. My biggest musical loss. :cry:

I've still got a vinyl copy of the First album, play it every now and then....More Than A Feeling is a classic. Like Alan said, they were very much one-hit wonders over here - Don't Look Back is the only other song of theirs that got much airplay.

Another sad loss for the music world.

RIP Brad.

None of us ever knows which day will be our last.

Yep, sad news. I was never a huge Boston fan, but I would still say I was a fan of their music. And it was Brad Delp's voice that truly impressed me, really a fantastic singer.

I grew up listening to Boston. I played their Third Stage album until it wouldn't play anymore (which I believe led to my obsession with girls named Amanda for a long while during my teen years). R.I.P.

Our songs also have the standard pop format: Verse, chorus, verse, chorus, solo, bad solo. All in all, I think we sound like The Knack and the Bay City Rollers being molested by Black Flag and Black Sabbath.
