Growing up, I wasn’t on board with the rock ‘n roll genre. To say that I equated all R&R with Metallica wouldn’t be an inaccurate statement. And I wanted no part of it.
That changed shortly after I graduated “hah skrewl” (a little Rush lingo, there) in 1981. It was at that point that I entered a fairly rebellious phase (for me) in my life. Part of that was developing a taste for – gasp! – rock ‘n roll. And the first band I remember going nuts over was Boston.
But if you click that link today, you’ll see a tribute to its lead singer, Brad Delp. That’s because he’s reached his destination, having passed from us at age 55.
In the story, they call him a tenor. Sorry, guys – that’s no tenor. I’m a tenor, and there’s no way in Hell I can get my voice that high without a vise grip attached firmly to my balls.
Tom, Barry, Sib – I loved your music, hated your politics, and haven’t listened to any of your stuff since Third Stage. But I will miss the hell outta Brad, and I grieve with you that he’s gone.
Rest in peace, Brad.
