More than a feeling
The Associated Press reports that Brad Delp, the lead singer of Boston was found dead in his home on Friday. When I read about it, it brought back a lot of memories for me. Our house was a den of guitar rock for about all of my childhood. My sister and I sang along to "Third Stage" (in tape form, even!) probably once a day from the moment it was released until we went off to college. We found each possible harmony -- sweet and sour -- that we could throw at the songs. We memorized all of the lyrics, even for the songs that really should have been fast-forward songs. Cool the engines! Slow this rocket down! I mean, come on. I already miss it so much.
