New Boston Compilation Album
Wednesday, April 17, 2002

On Tuesday, April 16th, there was another Boston album released. Not the album we expected. This was a compilation album.

It's called More Than a Feeling. If you're familiar with the Rock and Roll Band compilation that was relased 4 years ago, you'll recognize the band picture on the cover; it's the exact same one. That's not the only similarity; not some, but all the songs listed are the same as the Rock and Roll Band disc. Even more so, they are in the exact same order. It's already featured at CDNOW.com, amazon.com and other online retailers selling for around $8.00.

 
Album Update
Monday, April 08, 2002

A member of the Boston Bulletin Board spoke to Brad Delp recently and this person asked Brad about the album. Here's what Brad told them:

*The album is in the final stages of mixing (no info regarding title, release date, etc)
*They still don't have a drummer to tour with (there goes my theory on Anthony Citrinite)
*All decisions rest on Tom's lap
*Brad will be raring to go when it's time to tour

 
thirdstage.ca Relaunched
Monday, April 08, 2002

If you've been here before, you probably noticed that things look a little different (actually, things look a lot different). Not only did I get it done on time, but it's up 1 week ahead of schedule (I set the relaunch date for Apr. 15)!

I've completely redesigned this site from scratch. I wanted to make this site more pleasing to the eye, faster to download, more comprehensible, as well as make it easier to get the information you want (like putting the Headlines and the On This Day info on nearly every page).

If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email me.

 
Hybrid Ice to Reunite
Saturday, March 30, 2002

This info is from the HybridIceFans list:

It has been four years since the name Hybrid Ice has appeared on a marquis. And over a decade since some of the former members have appeared on stage. Now, the original members of the Hybrid Ice who recorded the self-titled debut and "No Rules" albums have gotten back together to give their fans what they have been asking for, for many years...more live performances.

The lineup includes Rick Klinger, Rusty Foulke, Jeff Willoughby, Bob Richardson, Chris Alburger and we are very pleased to announce that Bernie Garzio (who joined the band in 1996) has agreed to be part of the Hybrid Ice Reunion as well.

The Danville PA based band achieved Top 5 regional chart status with the song "Magdelene," shortly after it's release in 1982. A second album "No Rules" was released in 1988. In 1994, the rock group "Boston" re-recorded the song "Magdelene" and propelled it to international status selling in excess of one million copies. The band continued to perform with various personnel changes until July 1998. In June 2000 a British record label, Escape, released the group's first album on CD. The band also released their own Limited Edition CD of the same album weeks later. Rumors of a reunion started to surface at that time. But personal scheduling conflicts quashed the possibility of a reunion then.

Rehearsals for this year's reunion began several weeks ago and all involved have reported things are going very well. One group member told us,"The spark is back and everything feels good. It's great to be working with these guys again."

Some venue locations have been booked with the determinant factors being geographic location to be able cover a sampling of the area they once performed. And by size of the venue itself to be able to accommodate as many fans as possible in each location. As of this writing, the following shows have been CONFIRMED:

Saturday, May 18 - Pepper's Lounge at the Briar Creek Sports Complex, Berwick PA
Saturday, May 25 - Thunderdome, Baltimore MD
Saturday, June 1 - Shakey's, Hershey PA
Saturday, June 8 - TJ's Clubhouse, Lock Haven PA
Saturday, July 13 - Washie's, Danville PA

I got this from the Boston discussion list the other day. At the Escape Music website, there is mention of a Boston tribute album being worked on.
 
Alliance Releasing New Album
Thursday, February 14, 2002

If you go to Escape Music's website, at the bottom of the page, you can see that Alliance (a band Gary Pihl's involved in) is working another album that should be out late summer. So far, there's no word at Robert Berry's website, but I'll post more info when it becomes available.

 
Boston Added to Artemis Records Website
Thursday, January 31, 2002

Boston signed to Artemis Records on March 6, 2000 and they've finally been listed under the artists at Artemis Records website. They didn't put anything new there. Here's what they put under the Boston section:

March 6, 2000, New York -- Artemis Records has just signed a recording deal with Boston, the legendary rock group behind one of the fastest and best-selling debut albums in history. This announcement was made today by Danny Goldberg, President and CEO, Artemis Records/Sheridan Square Entertainment.

The new album, currently untitled, will feature original members Tom Scholz and Brad Delp and is described by Mr. Scholz as "...a marriage of alternative influence with unmistakable, classic Boston style."

Said Mr. Goldberg upon the announcement: "Signing Boston is a milestone for our label. Words cannot express how excited we are by Tom's new music."

Commented Mr. Scholz upon the announcement: "This is the most excited I've been since Irving Azoff got himself into a lawsuit with CBS by deciding to release Third Stage in 1986."

New Members of Boston (Another Update)
Friday, January 04, 2002

I got in contact with Kimberley Dahme's personal assistant, and it appears that Kimberley has done some work on Boston's new album.

This raises the question as to whether or not she's part of the band. Unfortunatelly Kimberley's assistant was unable to give me an answer to that question as of yet (so speculate whatever you so desire!). Personally, I really hope she's in the band :) So, there is that possibility that she could be among those in the lineup listed in one of the Jan.01 posts in this page.

Make sure to visit her website at http://www.kimberleydahme.com

Star Spangled Banner Controversy (part 2)
Friday, January 04, 2002

If you read the previous post regarding the controversy over the performance at the Fiesta Bowl, you'll know what I'm talking about. It seems that someone at ESPN decided to jump on the bandwagon and wrote an editorial regarding it. It wasn't very pleasant either...

Kimberley Dahme Info
Friday, January 04, 2002

I got a surprise when I checked my email; a message from Kimberley Dahme. Here is what she wrote:

I'm honored to say I'm singing backup on the new Boston album (which is such a great album I must say! Tom Scholz is a generous and a great person) and I'm thrilled to have had the chance to play the National Anthem with them Jan. 1st, 2002. As it is now, if that was all I ever have the chance to do with them,,, my dreams have come true. But we'll have to wait and see....

 
New Members of Boston (Update)
Wednesday, January 02, 2002

I found out today through official channels that the drummer at the Fiesta Bowl was Anthony Citrinite. And I looked around at Kimberley Dahme's website and by the looks of it, she was only in for the Fiesta Bowl performance (in other words, a one time gig). Since she has at least one other gig booked elsewhere this month (according to her website).

That would mean that Antonio Cosmo is probably the permanent bass player in the band, but just filled in on guitar for the New Year's gig (this is just my speculation and not official info). Of course, that would probably mean that the tentative lineup of the band is (and this is just my speculation):

Tom Scholz
Brad Delp (vocals/guitar)
Fran Cosmo (vocals/guitar)
Anthony Cosmo (bass)
Gary Pihl (guitar)
Anthony Citrinite (drums)
