New Brad Delp Article
Sunday, June 12, 2011

[Short Link: http://3rdstg.ca/bdlastverse]

June 12 marks what would have been Brad Delp's 60th birthday. Rock Hard Magazine has released an article featuring interviews with some of the people who were closest to Brad. The article also features a sample of a never before released song sung by Brad called "That's All Love Is".

The article gives some encouraging news with info from Brad's daughter Jenna. There is work being done on cleaning up some of Brad's unreleased solo material and collaborations with hopes of release! At the time of the interview, Jenna had hoped to have one song released on iTunes in time for Brad's birthday, however there doesn't appear to be any release yet. You may have seen the video on YouTube that Mark "Guitar" Miller posted of him recording in Brad's studio in the 80s for Brad's solo work. If you haven't seen it, you can check it out.

There are some challenges with the material -- namely mold. Apparently some of the material was damaged in a basement flood, and the tapes need to be cleaned. There's a video on YouTube of Brad's friend Roger Carmody working on transfering a tape wearing protective gear:

The article is posted as a series of JPG images. If you have trouble reading it, I created a full transcript of the article in text form which can be accessed here.

From the Boston Globe:

Among those celebrating Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s 150th anniversary over the weekend was Tom Scholz. The MIT alum and mastermind behind the formerly mega-selling band Boston performed with the Pops at Symphony Hall, wearing a tuxedo shirt and playing his signature Mighty Mouse Les Paul guitar. (In his intro, Pops conductor Keith Lockhart recalled how Boston’s first LP was the soundtrack to his senior year of high school.) Scholz played a new song, "Last Day of School," on the Symphony Hall pipe organ. He played four songs on guitar to a sold-out house backed by the orchestra, ending the set with "To Be a Man" from the "Third Stage" album.

Cosmos Perform for Organ Donor Awareness
Saturday, May 21, 2011

Fran and Anton Cosmo will be performing to help raise awareness for organ donation.

The concert, which will be held at The Stage on 6th Street in Austin, is to help raise awareness of organ donation and raise funds for Austin booking agent Tammy Miranda. Tammy has an autoimmune condition that causes liver failure. She has about a year to live. Tammy doesn't qualify for Medicaid and cannot get insurance.

Fran knows the importance of organ donation; his brother Ralph was saved with a double lung transplant. Fran has said "My brother Ralph had less than a month to live, but then had a double lung transplant! Now he is doing GREAT. I know in my heart that this is all going to turn out just as well for Tammy, I can feel it!"

Tammy Miranda is forming a foundation to raise funds for organ transplants.

You can buy tickets or make a donation by going to teamtammymiranda.com
