  • Lead Singer From "Boston" Dies

    Easily one of the top bands, if not THE top band to emerge from the 70's. There never was and quite possibly never will be a rock voice as amazing as Brad Delp's. This is a major loss for the rock community. (Please merge if this has already been posted.)

    Lead singer of the band Boston dies

    03/09/2007 11:37 PM, AP


    Brad Delp, the lead singer for the band Boston, was found dead Friday in his home in southern New Hampshire. He was 55.

    Atkinson police responded to a call for help at 1:20 p.m. and found Delp dead. Lt. William Baldwin said in a news release that there was no indication of foul play.

    "There was nothing disrupted in the house. He was a fairly healthy person from what we're able to ascertain," Police Chief Philip Consentino told WMUR-TV.

    Delp apparently was alone at the time, Baldwin said.

    The cause of death remained under investigation. Police said an incident report would not be available until Monday.

    Delp sang on Boston's 1976 hits "More than a Feeling" and "Long Time." He also sang on Boston's most recent album, "Corporate America," released in 2002.

    He joined the band in the early 1970s after meeting Tom Scholz, an MIT student interested in experimental methods of recording music, according to the group's official Web site. The band enjoyed its greatest success and influence during its first decade.

    The band's last appearance was in November 2006 at Boston's Symphony Hall.

    On Friday night, the Web site was taken down and replaced with the statement: "We just lost the nicest guy in rock and roll."

    A call to the Swampscott, Mass., home of Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau was not immediately returned Friday night.

      Heard this on the radio. Pretty sad. I'm not a huge fan of Boston's music, but "More Than a Feeling" is an amazing song.

        Bummer. I've always liked Boston.

            With all due respect, LDF - I don't know if I'd go quite that far - but Boston is a group that along with bands like Aerosmith, Steely Dan, ELO, Bachman Turner Overdrive, and others really defined the music of the 70's.

            I enjoyed Boston's music and this is sad news indeed.

                  That sucks. Wasn't a big fan but they were one of the defining bands of the 70's for sure.

                    That might be one of the reasons why I never much cared for 70's music. Everyone has said he was a really good guy, though, which puts him way ahead of most good lead singers of his era. They tend to be jerks.

                      Another Musician with an untimely death - I agree with Radiobarry, Boston was one of the defining bands of the 70's and Brad will be missed.
