Boston

The arena rock band behind one of the fastest-selling debut albums in history, Boston was essentially the vehicle of guitarist and studio wizard Tom Scholz, born March 10, 1947 in Toledo, Ohio. A rock fan throughout his teen years, he began writing songs while earning a master's degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After graduation, he began work for Polaroid, and set about constructing his own 12-track recording studio in the basement of his home, where Scholz and vocalist Brad Delp recorded demos that earned them a contract with Epic in 1975. Although some recording and overdubs were later done in Los Angeles, the 1976 release of Boston consisted largely of tapes recorded in Scholz's basement. (By then, the lineup had coalesced around Scholz, Delp, guitarist Barry Goudreau, bassist Fran Sheehan, and drummer John "Sib" Hashian.) Boston spawned three hit singles ("More Than a Feeling," "Long Time," and "Peace of Mind"), and shot immediately to the top of the charts, remaining the best-selling pop debut effort in history before it was supplanted by Whitney Houston's first album in 1986.

Despite the record's overwhelming success, Scholz spent over two years working on the follow-up, 1978's number one hit Don't Look Back; a perfectionist, he only then released the album because of intense label pressure for product. Dissatisfied with the results, he swore he'd produce the next album at his own pace; as a result, the chart-topping Third Stage did not appear until 1986, at which time only Scholz and Delp remained from the original lineup.

Scholz spent the next several years in the courtroom: eventually, he won a seven-year battle against Epic, which claimed Boston had reneged on its contract by taking so long between releases. When the band resurfaced again in 1994 with Walk On, Scholz was the lone remaining member; Delp and Goudreau had reunited in 1992 as RTZ, releasing the album Return to Zero. Unlike previous returns, Walk On was a commercial failure. Radio and MTV ignored any attempts at singles or videos, and the minimalist approach taken by the popular alternative artists of the era made the crystalline production and lengthy recording time seem anachronistic.

Taking another eight years to work on the next record, he targeted the Internet crowd first by releasing a single to www.MP3.com in the summer of 2002. The track became the site's number one download, and word of their new album spread quickly. (Delp's return to the group also helped matters.) Secondly, Scholz set his lyrical sights on political targets, going so far as to title the record Corporate America, as he emphasized his disdain for the system he had been a vital part of at one time. After releasing the record in the fall of that year, Boston embarked on a tour that took them into 2004. Around this time, Scholz began work on the next album using the same studio equipment the band had used since its inception. The work moved slowly and a shadow was cast over the project by the 2007 suicide of Delp, but the band's sixth album, Love Life & Hope, was released by Frontiers Records in late 2013. The album featured vocals by Delp and was something of a return to the classic Boston sound of the '70s. ~ Jason Ankeny

When Delp died, so did the group Boston, I am so glad I saw them back in the day with all the original members. Pretty sad to bring in a karaoke singer, Brian May of queen said it the best when Freddie died, queen died also the day Freddie did. Sholz only did for the money. Shame on him.

A major player in the current lineup is Gary Pihl, lead guitar and back-up vocals with Boston for over 30 years. He and Tom Sholz have crafted the sound we all love with their engineering talent. The new lead singer, Tommy De Carlo is fantastic. He has brought back the excitement of the original Boston songs with his incredible vocals. I have never been to better concerts and I have been going since the 70's! Long Live Boston! Thank you Tom, Gary, Tommy, Tracy, Jeff and Beth for all you do!

Still Luv my Boston girl... She'll never know the number of times I've flown the arrival to Boston right over Groton, near Lowell, enroute to Jeveli's in East Boston for some of that Veggie Pizza. Dude fine sliced and sautéed that eggplant to perfection. Hmmm, best pie on the planet! Yeah, and of course there's The Porthole for seafood on route A1A.

Saw Boston and Dennis DeYoung, original frontman for Styx at Fiddler's Green Amphitheater in Denver last Friday night. Only went to see Boston, but was super impressed with Dennis. Sounded like the original Styx stuff - pretty awesome. I liked Boston, but if you are a super fan like I am, you definitely noticed the inability of the new lead singer to hit the high notes like Delp. Sounded like they tried to cover it up by playing the original tracks in the background.

Saw them at Fiddler's Green in Denver last Friday. Dennis DeYoung of Styx fame was the opener. One of the best concerts I've seen. Brought my daughter and son-in-law who are in their mid 20's and are big fans of this timeless music.

Saw them at Fiddler's Green in Denver. Dennis DeYoung of Styx fame was the opening act. Both he and Scholz are 69 years old!! The lead singer that replaced Delp was having trouble with high notes but it was still an amazing show.
