Sadly, 10 years ago today, we lost Brad Delp of the band Boston. If you love your classic rock station or you grew up in the 70s, you definitely heard of Boston and the iconic voice of Brad Delp. Boston was known for “More than a Feeling,” “Piece of Mind,” “Foreplay/Longtime,” “Don’t Look Back” and more. Boston would be on hiatus due to mainly legal issues after their second album and would not return until 1986 with Third Stage.
Boston’s Third Stage would return the band to #1 with “Amanda” and also three other hits. The album is notable for having mainly Delp and Tom Scholz playing on the album, and keeping the usual Boston sound.
In the 1990s, Boston would press on, but without Brad Delp in the beginning. Delp and Scholz would have their disagreements before the 90s arrived with Delp leaving Boston in the end. He would join Boston alumni Barry Goudreau to form RTZ (Return to Zero).
Delp would re-join Boston in the mid-90s for the Walk On tour and would stay with both Boston and RTZ until his death in 2007.
