I assume most have heard already about Brad Delps untimely death.
Arguably one of the best male voices in contemporary music and you need not be a Boston fan to appreciate the talent Brad possessed.

Itís ironic too that I was talking Thursday with a friend of mine about our favorite male vocalist and the top two that came up were, Brad Delp and Paul Rogers.

RIP Brad you will be missed.

A fantastic voice of power and clarity. I will miss him, and say a prayer.

That's too bad. He has been going around New England with his Beatles tribute band Beatle Juice. I am almost certain they had gigs on the books for the not too distant future. I caught them a few years ago in a town hall near my home and they were tremendous. He will be missed.

What a terrible waste. I was priveledged to see him with Boston three times in '03-'04. That tremendous voice was still there. Apparently, he must have had a hell of a reason to take his own life at only 55 when he a had a loving family and fiancee to leave behind.

Godspeed, Brad! You will be missed.

Cheers,

Kevin

FWIW, Scholz posted a decent memorial to brad on his site:

Suicide? I am stunned to say the least. Rest ye well Brad, you will be missed forever, and remembered with every Boston song ever played.

I too was stunned to learn it was suicide. Even more stunning was the method. Two charcoal grills in the bathroom?
