    Lead singer of the band Boston dies

    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.

    I played "More Than a Feeling" on my show last night in memory of him.

    I am so sorry to hear this. The article mentioned that there was a response to a call for help, and that Brad was alone. So I am guessing that he felt ill, made the call for help, but didn't survive for long after that. How sad. I love that group, and I have such good memories that I recall every time I listen to their music. I will pray for Brad's family.

    Off topic: DK you said you played, "More Than a Feeling" on your show last night. Do you have a radio show? I didn't know that.

    Yes, I'm a night time radio DJ. We play Adult Top 40 with classic hits like that mixed in.

    Ah, just my kind of music, DK. We have such diversity here on WS. People form all over the country, and some from other countries, and we have people in so many different career fields. It is one of the many reasons I like WS so much.

    I can't get over that Brad Delp is gone. They stated that he seemed to be in fairly good health, and he was 55. I wonder if it was not a heart attack or a brain or pulmonary aneurysm. This was very unexpected, and I imagine his family and friends are still in a state of shock and disbelief. This is sad news.

    Thanks to DK for posting this.

    RIP Brad!

    I saw Boston live when I was a sr in high school @ Princeton University. Still to this day are one of my all time favorite bands. Any time I'm driving and one of their songs come on, the windows come down and the volume goes up!! So sad to hear of this news though.......
