Off topic: Honoring a Music Legend

There are bands out there...and then there are BANDS! They clutter the airwaves, and in the post-grunge era, they all sound alike. But there is one group that is instantly recognizable, both vocally and musically...BOSTON...Whenever you hear a BOSTON tune, you just KNOW it's BOSTON!

From their debut hit MORE THAN A FEELING, to their last offering WALK ON, Brad Delp's voice screams "BOSTON"! I don't mean, in any way, to sell Tom Scholtz short...he is the wizard of BOSTON'S unique sound, but it was Brad's voice that captured a generation! I don't know why life got so bad that Brad felt compelled to take his own life, but I can assure you that a generation of music fans were saddened with this loss. Rest in peace Brad! Here is a clip of one of their more famous performances:
