Brad Delp Cause of Death Released
Wednesday, March 14, 2007

The death of Brad Delp has had a profound impact on many fans. The cause of death makes me as sad as I was when I first read the news of his death as it appears Brad took his own life.

CONCORD, N.H. --The family of Brad Delp, the lead singer for the band Boston, said Wednesday his death was a suicide.

"He was a man who gave all he had to give to everyone around him, whether family, friends, fans or strangers," the family said in a statement relayed by police. "He gave as long as he could, as best he could, and he was very tired. We take comfort in knowing that he is now, at last, at peace."

Delp, 55, died Friday at his Atkinson home. Police have said his fiancee, Pamela Sullivan, found him.

Toxicology tests by the state medical examiner's office showed that Delp committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning, said Lt. William Baldwin. Delp also left two notes taped to a door and letters to his family and Sullivan.

Baldwin said police do not know the contents of the letters because they were sealed.

The family's statement said Sullivan, Delp's children and their mother, his ex-wife Micki Delp, were grateful for the sympathy they had received and asked that their privacy be respected.

Brad Delp joined Boston in the mid-1970s and sang two of its biggest hits, "More than a Feeling" and "Long Time."

Delp had planned to marry Sullivan this summer during a break in a tour with Boston. A lifelong Beatles fan, Delp also played with a tribute band, Beatle Juice.

Beatle Juice performed a benefit last year to help build a new public library in Atkinson, a small town of about 6,000 residents on the Massachusetts border.

The family said last week it planned a private funeral followed by a public memorial to be scheduled later. Family and friends directed donations to the American Heart Association in Framingham, Mass.

Friday, March 09, 2007

It is with great sadness to report that Boston vocalist Brad Delp has passed away.

From the Associated Press:
ATKINSON, N.H. -- Brad Delp, the lead singer for Boston, a huge rock sensation in the 1970s, was found dead Friday in his home, police said. 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 fronted the rock band, who rose to fame in the late 1970s and had several hits, including "More than A Feeling." The group sold millions of records.


Boston has been in the works in preparing for a summer tour. I would like to express my condolences to Brad's family, including his fiancee Pamela Sullivan.

You will be missed, Brad.

Anthony Cosmo Facing Lawsuit
Monday, January 15, 2007

This was published in the Boston Herald:

Tom Scholz of Boston fame has More Than a Feeling about recent bandmate Anthony Migliacco using his affiliation with the vintage rock band, so he’s filed suit against him in Suffolk Superior Court!

Apparently, Migliacco, aka Anthony Cosmo, has been touting his stage work with the classic band - despite signing an agreement that he wouldn’t do so. But what really has Scholz Smokin’ is that Migliacco allegedly billed he and his dad, Francis, who also played with the late 1990’s version of Boston, as the classic Hub band when they played a gig in St. Croix earlier this month.

Migs, according to the Boston Business Journal, said the agreement is null and void. Scholz’s legal counsel disagrees.

“Tom Scholz owns the trademark, the name, and there’s a lot of value to that, and he wants to protect the value,” Susan Stenger of Burns & Levinson told the BBJ.

The suit, filed last month, seeks to enforce the agreement and collect legal fees.

As always, do stay tuned

Update: Feb 02, 2007:
According to melodicrock.com, the lawsuit between Tom and Anthony has been dropped. Here's what was posted:

It seems the lawsuit mentioned around the traps between Tom Scholtz of Boston and Anthony Cosmo has been dropped, with the issue at hand dealt with behind the scenes.

Does Boston Plan to Tour in 2007?
Friday, December 15, 2006

During the Christmas at the Palace Theatre, which aired on WZID 95.7, Kimberley Dahme and Brad Delp performed. After Brad performed Paul McCartney's Wonderful Christmastime and John Lennon's Happy Xmas (War is Over), Brad was asked if Boston plans to tour in 2007.

Here's a transcript of what Brad said:

Host: ...before we let you leave the stage, Brad Delp, we need to know, we need to know, is Boston coming back for another tour anytime soon? Your fans wanna know, I'm sure.

Brad: I heard rumors to that effect -- we played not too long ago at Symphony Hall for Doug Flutie's retirement party, and the gig went so well, Tom was very pleased, and so actually -- tell a secret, we have rehearsal this Saturday. Looks like we may be going out this summer folks, so that means Beatlejuice takes a small hiatus, but I'm so lucky that I get to do things that I love -- you know i love -- obviously singing the Beatle songs and the fact that after all these years people still wanna come out and see Boston, that means a lot to us.

Host: 30 years, isn't it, Brad?

Brad: Yes it is 30, but my hair -- it used to be not grey, I think when we started.

Host: You used to have that fro that we just follow you around on stage, right?

Brad: That was the other guy -- well actually I had one too, but that was, yeah, that was Sibby. So I guess the short answer to your question would be yes.

Well, Brad said it, I guess we'll have to hold him to it!

By the way, if you missed the show, you can hear the Brad and Kimberley performances in the audio section. It features Kimberley and Brad singing two songs each, plus guest performances.
