Vocalist Brad Delp and drummer Jim Masdea were joined by a recent MIT graduate, Tom Scholz on keyboards.
The band didn’t last, but its members spent time in a homemade recording studio in Scholz’s basement recording demo tapes in hopes of making a new start.
Those tapes eventually landed the group, now called Boston, a deal with Epic Records, and in 1976 they released what would become the biggest selling debut album in history, with sales exceeding 17-million.
The legendary Rockman guitar amplifier was a product of Scholz’s own company, which he formed in the early ‘80s and later sold.
Scholz and Delp were the only original members of Boston who were still with the band until March 2007 when Delp died at the age of 55.
Boston Weathers the Storms: Like other bands of the era who achieved major commercial success in a short time, there was internal dissension and a tenuous relationship with a record label anxious to capitalize on the huge success of the band’s first album.
