Boston

Boston was formed in, duh, Boston in the mid-’70s by Tom Scholz, a tech nerd whose homemade demo tapes became the cornerstone of the band’s self-titled 1976 debut album — one of the biggest-selling first albums of all time. With singer Brad Delp and guitarist Barry Goudreau, Scholz helped form the core of a band that charted three hit singles from that debut LP: ‘More Than a Feeling,’ ‘Long Time’ and ‘Peace of Mind.’ Two years later, they returned with ‘Don’t Look Back’ and their first No. 1 album. Eight long years later, Scholz and Delp returned with ‘Third Stage,’ another No. 1 album and the band’s only No. 1 single, the power ballad ‘Amanda.’ Delp was gone by the ’90s, and, sadly, killed himself in 2007 at the age of 55. Scholz has continued to lead various lineups of Boston since, with their latest album, ‘Life, Love & Hope,’ coming out in 2013.
