One of the greatest voices in rock n’ roll was silenced today. CNN.com is reporting that Brad Delp – the lead vocalist for the rock band Boston – passed away this afternoon. There had been talk about a new Boston album and a possible reunion tour of the original members. That is now tragically gone forever.
Boston’s self-titled debut album – though released over 30 years ago – is timeless in its sound, innovation and compositions – not to mention one of the greatest classic rock albums of all time. Brad’s endless vocal range and soaring melodies helped to propel that album to one of the best selling debut records in the history of music.
