I hadn't heard this. Thats so sad. Boston actually revolutionized the music biz and patented a special sound and redesigned their amps. Its pretty cool stuff, even though there are a lot of people that dont think they really had a big impact. They did, and I liked his voice. It's too bad he's gone.

I cannot remember the guitarist's name, but I do remember reading that he has a masters degree in engineering. He was probably the one who redesigned their amps. The news is still pretty new, but ugh - a lot of good artists from those good days are slowly going.

Tom Scholz is the guitar player's name. He and Brad both have degrees from MIT, which is where they met. How many bands can say they have two MIT graduates in their line-up. Not many I'd bet.

Boston seems to be the only band with MIT alumni, never mind MIT graduates, that I know of. It was on Boston's album that pointed out that Tom Scholtz had a master's degree in mechanical engineering. It would be interesting to see how they acutally came together, but it seems that the band name Boston & MIT comes together nicely.

I always think it's a sad day when somebody in the music industry passes away. I think it's because music plays such a huge role in our lives. For me I know I have a song for everything and without these wonderful talented people we wouldn't have our "first dance" "first kiss song" wedding songs...even the song we made love to :) it's a sad day in the music world indeed.

What an awesome voice and talent. My friend had their first album on vinyl and we literally wore it out. I bought it a couple years later on cassette and played it so much in my car that I wore it out too! I have another copy on CD now. It's one of those CD's that when you're driving down the highway at 70mph you roll down the windows and crank up the volume and sing until you lose your voice. Lots of good memories with that band. RIP Brad
