RIP: Brad Delp

A couple of days ago, we lost one of the great rock vocalists, Brad Delp from the band Boston. There aren't a lot of other debut albums that could stand toe-to-toe with Boston's. Brad's voice really played a major role in giving Boston their own identifiable sound. Late last year, I saw Brad play with his Beatles tribute band, Beatlejuice. It's a shame, given that Boston had a new album and tour in the works for this year. Here's the official statement on their site from guitarist Tom Scholz:
As you all know by now, BOSTON'S lead singer, Brad Delp, was found dead in his home on Friday, March 9th 2007. Plans for live BOSTON performances this summer have, of course, been cancelled.

My heart goes out to his wonderful fiance Pamela, his two children and other family members, his close friends and band mates, and to the millions of people whose lives were made a little brighter by the sound of his voice. He will be dearly missed.

Tom Scholz
