He's gone to that big guitar / spaceship in the sky / outer space

Brad Delp, the golden-throated singer of the 70's rock behemoth Boston, died this weekend at the fairly young age of 55. Dang. He's the one on the right with the Andre The Giant as Bigfoot-style hairdo-beard combo, although in the video below he has ditched the beard in favor of a more Doug Henning -like appearance. These guys sold 17 million copies of their self-titled debut album in 1977. Which would explain why they are sitting on their own plane in the above picture.

Say what you will about them, but "More Than A Feeling" is a song that rocks your balls off. It's easily one of the best entries on the mighty "Guitar Hero" video game (although I'm growing increasingly fond of G-n-R's "Sweet Child O' Mine" on "Guitar Hero 2.") Anyway, here's a grainy video of "More Than A Feeling" for you to sing along / cry to.

Apparently Richard Jenni was a huge fan and terribly despondent over the whole thing.

By the way, Is this also a bigfoot sighting. Did you see the pelt on the drummer. What the hell?

I guess Boston was just a hairy band.
