Lead Singer of "Boston" Dead At Age 55

ATKINSON, N.H. (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 meeing 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.
