    Lead singer of the band Boston dies

    Lead singer of the band Boston dies

    03/10/2007 2:10 AM, AP


    Brad Delp, the lead singer for the band Boston, was found dead Friday 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. Lt. William Baldwin said in a news release that there was no indication of foul play.

    "There was nothing disrupted in the house. He was a fairly healthy person from what we're able to ascertain," Police Chief Philip Consentino told WMUR-TV.

    Delp apparently was alone at the time, Baldwin said.

    The cause of death remained under investigation. Police said an incident report would not be available until Monday.

    Delp sang on Boston's 1976 hits "More than a Feeling" and "Long Time." 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.

    Oh man, that's sad. I wore out to 8 track tapes of the very first Boston release.

    It's a sad day in Mudville
