Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Ultimate Classic Rock is proud to present the exclusive premiere of the second part of a video interview with Boston‘s Tom Scholz. The segment, ‘One in a Million,’ is embedded above.

In the clip, which is the latest installment of PBS/NOVA acclaimed web series, ‘The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers,’ Scholz dicusses how he recorded Boston’s debut album while still employed at Polaroid for fear that it might not pan out. It wasn’t until Boston were about to embark on their first headlining tour — after ‘More Than a Feeling‘ had blown up — that he realized he could probably make a go of being a full-time musician.

Previously, Scholz talked about how his childhood fascination with boats and planes prepared him for a life of engineering. While at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he got bitten by the rock bug. A project at Polaroid showed him that it was possible to build equipment that allowed him to reproduce the sound he heard in his head.

‘The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers’ is an Emmy-nominated bi-weekly series of fascinating interviews with people in the public eye who have a background in science or engineering. Previous subjects have included Bill Nye, Neil DeGrasse Tyson and actress Mayim Bialik. You can follow the show on Facebook and Twitter. Boston will be on tour all summer — you can get all the dates at their website.
