Boston lead singer Brad Delp dies at 55

03/09/2007 8:31 PM, AP

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. 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 sang vocals on Boston's 1976 hits "More than a Feeling" and "Longtime." He also sang on Boston's most recent album, "Corporate America," released in 2002.

He joined the band in the early 1970s after meeting Tom Scholz, an MIT student interested in experimental methods of recording music, according to the group's official Web site. The band enjoyed its greatest success and influence during its first decade.

The band's last appearance was in November 2006 at Boston's Symphony Hall.

On Friday night, the Web site was taken down and replaced with the statement: "We just lost the nicest guy in rock and roll."

A call to the Swampscott, Mass., home of Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau was not immediately returned Friday night.

I saw Boston once it was pretty cool.

I always thought Tom Scholz sang and played all the instruments. I didn't even believe there was an actual band.

I drank my first ever beer to the first Boston album, so, RIP Brad Delp.

Did anyone have him on their Death Pool?

I saw them too back in like 1996 or 1997. Not that bad of a show for cheesy rock n roll. I guess Tom Scholtz made every guitar amp and all of the effects pedals or something like that. the guy is a MIT engineer.

Smokin... smokin...smokin the night gonna keep on token!!!!

A good part of my high school idle time was spent listening to Boston. Sad this makes me. He had a very good voice.
