Obituary
Boston Lead Singer Brad Delp Dies at 55
Complete Story of the US Rock Band Lead Singer
Brad Delp, lead singer of the band Boston

Brad Delp, the lead singer for the band Boston, was found dead on March 9 in his home in southern New Hampshire. He was 55. Atkinson police responded to a call for help at 1:20 p.m. and found Delp dead. Police Lt. William Baldwin said in a statement the death was "untimely" and that there was no indication of foul play.

Delp apparently was alone at the time of his death, Baldwin said.

The cause of his death remained under investigation by the Atkinson police and the New Hampshire Medical Examiner's office. Police said an incident report would not be available until Monday.

Delp sang vocals on Boston's 1976 hits "More than a Feeling" and "Longtime." He also sang on Boston's most recent album, "Corporate America," released in 2002.

He joined the band in the early 1970s after meeting Tom Scholz, an MIT student interested in experimental methods of recording music, according to the group's official Web site. The band enjoyed its greatest success and influence during its first decade.

The band's last appearance was in November 2006 at Boston's Symphony Hall.

On Friday night, the Web site was taken down and replaced with the statement: "We just lost the nicest guy in rock and roll."

A call to the Swampscott, Mass., home of Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau was not immediately returned Friday night.

Who Is Bradley E. Delp?

Bradley E. Delp (June 12, 1951 in Danvers, Massachusetts – March 9, 2007 [1] in Atkinson, New Hampshire) was an American musician best known as the lead vocalist of the rock band Boston.

Dearly life
Delp's interest in music began at age thirteen, when he bought a guitar after seeing the Beatles perform on The Ed Sullivan Show. In 1970, he was making heating elements for Mr. Coffee machines at Danvers company Hot-Watt when he met Boston founder Tom Scholz, guitarist Barry Goudreau and drummer Jim Masdea while playing in a cover band.

Boston and bands
Delp auditioned as lead vocalist for Boston, and got the job immediately. He also contributed back-up vocals, guitar, and keyboards on the Boston albums, and also plays the harmonica. His partnership with guitarist Tom Scholz led to a string of hit songs.

On the 1994 album Walk On, Fran Cosmo replaced Delp, but the album did not sell as well. Delp later shared vocals with Cosmo in concert, where Delp said Cosmo covered "the really tough high parts."

Delp was also lead vocalist for the band Return to Zero, a band created by former Boston member Barry Goudreau. Delp also performed with Goudreau on a recent album.

Later, Delp played in a Beatles cover band called Beatlejuice when he had time off from the band.

Later life
Delp was married to Micki Delp and had two children with her prior to their divorce. Delp had been a vegetarian for over thirty years and had contributed to a number of charitable causes. [4] Delp was set to marry longtime girlfriend Pamela Sullivan during a two day break in Boston's 2007 summer tour.

Delp was found dead in his home in Atkinson, New Hampshire on March 9, 2007. That day, the band's official web site was taken down and replaced with the statement: "We've just lost the nicest guy in rock and roll." He was scheduled to perform with Beatlejuice in Somerville, Massachusetts on the day he died. Beatlejuice has canceled its upcoming shows in the wake of Delp's death.
