We'll Never Forget You, Brad

I can't believe it's been four years since Brad Delp died.

I remember the day like it was yesterday, when I first heard the news that Brad was gone, I couldn't believe it - in fact I didn't believe it right away, not until I read a news article from a major news organization. Once I was forced to accept that this was real, I spent hours going through all the news channels on TV, looking for articles online, anything that had more information as to what happened. Then when it was revealed that he took his own life, I was in utter shock. I, like many others had no idea of the depression Brad felt or any problems he was having in his life.

Many try to point the finger, find a reason why this happened. I don't think there is one thing that pushed Brad to that point and I don't think we'll ever truly understand, even with the recent article The Boston Globe wrote, or the emails that have surfaced. Even if we could find an answer, it doesn't change what happened, doesn't change what the world lost on that day.

The Brad Delp Foundation was created by his friends and family to carry on the legacy of giving and kindness of Brad.

Let's take the time to remember the man, remember the voice. Listen to any recordings you have with Brad and celebrate the life of Brad. Please share any stories or memories you have of Brad in the comments.
