It’s been 11 years since Boston released their last album, ‘Corporate America.’ If you were starting to think that there wouldn't be another Boston album in your lifetime, you weren’t alone. As Tom Scholz shared with us during an exclusive interview, there were times when he too wondered if he would be able be able to finish the album he had been working on over the past decade.
Ever since Boston announced the upcoming release of ‘Life, Love & Hope' -- their first new album since the tragic 2007 death of longtime lead singer Brad Delp -- it had been assumed the record would contain the last of his vocal contributions to the group. However, in an exclusive interview, band mastermind Tom Scholz says we may hear Delp's voice yet again in the future.
Boston have undergone a lot of lineup changes over the course of the band's 37-year history, but their sound has always remained more or less the same, with very few concessions to current trends. As bandleader Tom Scholz revealed during a recent interview, that's at least partly because he doesn't even know what those current trends are.
One of the ‘70s’ most remarkable breakthrough success stories turned sour with the release of an second album that redefined the “sophomore slump” – and all because it was so late on arrival.
