Brad Delp & Boston in 1976.

 

When, suddenly, the sun was gone.

In his basement, the gawky engineer fresh out of MIT painstakingly recorded layers of guitars, keyboards, and bass until he got it right. But it wasn?t until Tom Scholz, the stubborn perfectionist, met Brad Delp, the dark, complicated singer with the soaring voice, that those basement demos came alive…

SHOCKING DETAILS: LATE BOSTON SINGER MIGHT HAVE HAD A YOKO?

In the wake of lawsuits flying in Boston about the band Boston following the 2007 suicide of singer Brad Delp, it turns out there might have been a Yoko in the band — Delp’s girlfriend.

Some are saying Delp’s struggles with his girlfriend are why he killed himself, others allege Boston mastermind Tom Scholz is to blame, and we at Sludge think it might have something to do with the band playing some of the world’s blandest, by-the-numbers corporate rock for 30 years.

At any rate, it all makes for an incredible story in the Globe that you can read HERE – if you’re a Boston fan (OK, I admit it, I am) or even a soap-opera fan, you’re going to LOVE this story.
