'King of Kindness' Delp prodded Maine guitarist
Friday, September 10, 2010

By Nate Dow
Boston Herald

It's easy to understand why Mark "Guitar" Miller gets choked up when he talks about Brad Delp. A legendary guitarist in Maine, Miller had become best friends with the former lead singer of the band Boston. Delp even served as best man at Miller's wedding.

Since meeting in 1980, Miller and Delp often performed together. They also contributed to each other's solo projects. But, just as Delp's 2007 suicide left so much musical promise unfulfilled, all of those recordings remained under wraps.

Now, after several delays caused by financial problems and heartache from Delp's death, Miller has finally released "Whatcha Gonna Do," the solo CD he made with "special guest" Brad Delp.

Miller said it was Delp who urged him to resume working on the album, which he started recording in a Hollywood, Calif., studio in 2000 but abandoned due to lack of funding.

Judge: Scholz's libel lawsuit vs. Herald goes forward
Friday, September 10, 2010

Boston Globe

Bad news for the Boston Herald. A judge today rejected the newspaper's motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed against it by Boston rocker Tom Scholz.

Last March, three years after Boston singer Brad Delp committed suicide, Scholz sued the Herald for libel, claiming reporters Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa defamed him by writing that Delp's ex-wife, Micki, blamed Scholz for the singer's death.

"This court finds that Scholz's complaint and the inferences...support his claim that the defendants' alleged conduct is 'extreme and outrageous,'" wrote Judge John Cratsley in his decision.

Scholz, who is represented by attorney Howard Cooper, contends Fee and Raposa, authors of the tabloid's Inside Track column, attributed statements to Micki Delp that were "false and fabricated."

Judge: Tom Scholz must produce documents
Thursday, July 22, 2010

Boston Herald

A judge has ordered Tom Scholz of the rock band Boston to turn over documents, including e-mails between him and key figures in the case, sought by Herald lawyers defending the paper against a libel suit brought by Scholz.

Suffolk Superior Court Judge John C. Cratsley has granted Herald motions compelling Scholz, his wife, his ex-wife and his accountants to produce within 30 days e-mails and other documents that they had previously withheld.

“All e-mail correspondence shall be produced in its entirety, including any preceding messages and attachments,” Cratsley ruled.

The court rejected Scholz’s bid to subject the material to a far-reaching confidentiality order that the Herald’s lawyers claimed would have let Scholz pick and choose which documents to seal from public view.

Scholz’s lawyers argued that such an order was needed to protect the musician’s personal and business information.
