Gonna Hitch A Ride, Head For The Other Side

Dude, I haven't listened to Boston in forever, but this news is still sad. That 1st Boston album was my very first Lock N' Loll album when I was 12-years old circa 1977.

Boston Lead Singer Dies
Friday, March 9, 2007
(03-09) 15:55 PST Atkinson, N.H. (AP) --

Brad Delp, the lead singer for Boston, a huge rock sensation in the 1970s, was found dead Friday in his home, police said. He was 55.

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

Delp apparently was alone at the time of his death, Baldwin said.

The cause of his death remained under investigation by the Atkinson police and the New Hampshire Medical Examiner's office. Police said an incident report would not be available until Monday.

Delp fronted the rock band, who rose to fame in the late 1970s and had several hits, including "More than A Feeling." The group sold millions of records.

I still have my original copy of that 1st Boston album (it's TRASHED) and I've never owned any Boston on CD.. They are ancient history to me, in more ways than one. It's been such a long time... it's more than a feeling.
