    Brad Delp lead singer of Boston, died

    I heard about this yesterday. Boston was a band that both my father and I listened too. I had hoped to catch them a few years back when they toured, but missed out. Story below:

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,258108,00.html

    ATKINSON, N.H. 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 statement the death was "untimely" and that there was no indication of foul play.

    Delp apparently was alone at the time, Baldwin said.

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

    I propose a moment of silence, after which we all crank our stereos to 11 and blast "More Than a Feeling."

    He wasn't the biggest name in rock, but he'll be missed.

    Tommy, close your eyes.

    sorry to say, twas a suicide.

    From Pollstar:
    Delp's Death Was Suicide
    Updated 14:41 PDT Wed, Mar 14 2007
    (Associated Press, Concord, N.H.) The family of Brad Delp, the lead singer for the band Boston, said his death was a suicide.
    "He was a man who gave all he had to give to everyone around him, whether family, friends, fans or strangers," the family said in a statement relayed by police Wednesday. "He gave as long as he could, as best he could, and he was very tired. We take comfort in knowing that he is now, at last, at peace."
    Delp, 55, died Friday at his Atkinson home. Fiancee Pamela Sullivan found him.
    Toxicology tests by the state medical examiner's office showed that Delp committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning, said Lt. William Baldwin. Delp also left two notes taped to a door and letters to his family and Sullivan.
    Baldwin said police do not know the contents of the letters.
    The family's statement said Sullivan, Delp's children and their mother, Delp's ex-wife Micki Delp, were grateful for the sympathy they had received.
    Brad Delp joined Boston in the mid-1970s and sang two of its biggest hits, "More than a Feeling" and "Long Time."
    Delp had planned to marry Sullivan this summer during a break in a tour with Boston. A lifelong Beatles fan, Delp also played with a tribute band, Beatle Juice.
    Beatle Juice performed a benefit last year to help build a new public library in Atkinson, a small town of about 6,000 residents on the Massachusetts border.
    The family said last week it planned a private funeral followed by a public memorial to be scheduled later
    "Woke up at 9.55am. Soon as I woke up, I looked at Suzanne and she looked at me. I said, 'Did I tell you about the immune system?' Suzanne starting laughing, I said, 'it's amazing.' She said, 'Not now.'"

    That is sad. I heard about it on the radio today, and the DJ kept saying he had two charcoal BBQ's in his bathroom.

    Yet, Rush is still considered the third best Canadian recording artist ever behind Bare Naked Ladies and Anne Muary!!!!

    At least Boston was the first good group out of their respective city who didn't sell out and make power ballads only these days.

    Bare Naked Ladies suck, but Anne Murray is the balls.
