A fond farewell/Boch takes it all in
Tuesday, August 21, 2007
Boston Globe has a couple news clips in their August 21 edition under the Celebrity News section.

A fond farewell
"We did it for Brad," said Boston bassist Fran Sheehan, chatting backstage during Sunday's tribute to Brad Delp. In honor of Boston's late, great lead singer, Sheehan and bandmate Barry Goudreau set aside their differences with Tom Scholz to close the show with one of the band's big hits, "Don't Look Back." However, not everyone was on stage for the fiery finale. Drummer Sib Hashian declined to take part in the emotional reunion, telling friends he wasn't "comfortable" sharing the stage with Scholz. Hashian, we're told, wasn't even in the house at the end, having retired to a hotel suite nearby. Among the well-wishers milling about backstage were Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer, who insisted on paying for his ticket, celebrated rock 'n' roll shutterbug Ron Pownall, Godsmack singer Sully Erna, guitarist Johnny A, Boston's original manager Paul Ahern, WZLX DJ Carter Alan, Nashville singer Tom Hambridge, and Delp's fiancee, Pamela Sullivan.

Boch takes it all in
If you didn't make it to the Delp tribute concert, don't worry, there's a chance it'll show up on DVD. At considerable expense to himself, Ernie Boch Jr. recorded the entire affair. The auto magnate, whose band Ernie & the Automatics opened Sunday's show at the Bank of America Pavilion, arranged to have seven cameras and a 48-track mobile unit capture the concert's sights and sounds. "I did it because it was a historical moment," said Boch. The bands all signed off on the recording, though Scholz did request that he be given the tapes of Boston's performance. (He's promised to give Ernie a copy.) Boch, by the way, appears on the cover of the new issue of Automotive News. "In my industry, this magazine is like the Bible is for Christians, or Rolling Stone is for the rock set," said Boch, who spiked his hair for the photo shoot. "It's just me being me."
