Boston lead singer Brad Delp dies at 55

03/09/2007 8:31 PM, 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. Police Lt. William Baldwin said in a statement the death was "untimely" and that there was no indication of foul play.

Delp apparently was alone at the time of his death, Baldwin said.

The cause of his death remained under investigation by the Atkinson police and the New Hampshire Medical Examiner's office. Police said an incident report would not be available until Monday.

Delp sang vocals on Boston's 1976 hits "More than a Feeling" and "Longtime." He also sang on Boston's most recent album, "Corporate America," released in 2002.

He joined the band in the early 1970s after meeting 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.

Boston Lead Singer Dead at 55

Brad Delp was found dead at his New Hampshire home. Police have ruled out foul play. Boston had a number of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

New Hampshire authorities are investigating the death of Boston lead singer Bradley Delp, who was found dead in his home at the age of 55.

WGIR is reporting that police responded to Delp's residence in the small town of Atkinson for a reported untimely death.

Investigators said Delp was apparently alone at the time of his death, but found no indication of foul play.

Boston had a number of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s, including "More Than a Feeling," "Peace of Mind," and "Foreplay/Long Time."

When not working with Boston, Delp played in a Beatles cover band called Beatlejuice.

The band's official website was taken down Friday night and replaced with this message: "The nicest, kindest, most caring, down to earth rock star the world has ever known. May you rest in Peace."

Boston was going to rehearse throughout May, then set out on a big tour in June. A new Boston album was being worked on, although its exact status is unknown.

Delp was also planning to get married to longtime girlfriend Pamela Sullivan this summer.
