March 10th marks Tom Scholz's 55th birthday. Happy birthday Tom and many happy returns!
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.

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 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."

January 31st marks the birthday of Boston drummer (former drummer now I guess) Curly Smith. Happy Birthday Curly!

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.

Just a reminder that Beatle Juice will be performing a benefit show on January 12th in Portsmouth, NH supporting the Sexual Assault Support Services.

Beatle Juice is also the cover story in the Jan. 03 issue of Showcase magazine. You can see the article at Foster's Online.

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...

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....

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)
