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)

 
National Anthem Sparks Controversy
Wednesday, January 02, 2002

It seems that Boston's rendition of the Star Spangled Banner has caused quite a stir. It seems that there are some people who are outraged by the rendition of the national anthem, calling it a "disgrace" and an "outrage". After the anthem, there was an outpour of anger on the Fiesta Bowl message board (the posts have since been removed, however, new posts have emerged).

According to officials for the Fiesta Bowl, phones have been ringing off the hook with an outpour of complaints, but they stand by their decision to have Boston perform the anthem stating they have "done things just a little bit different than other bowl games"

The world watched today as Boston performed the Star Spangled Banner live at the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The Fiesta bowl aired live at 4:30pm EST on ABC (and also TSN in Canada).

If you missed the performance, don't worry. You can see the performance 24/7 in the Screening Room. You can also see some screen shots in the Pics section.

 
New Members of Boston
Tuesday, January 01, 2002

If you saw the performance @ The Fiesta Bowl, you may have noticed that there were 7 people performing on stage. One of them (playing guitar) was Antonio Cosmo (Fran's son).

There's also a new drummer (I don't know what happened to Curly), and there was a female bass player. By the looks of things, the bass player was Kimberley Dahme. I don't know if she's in the band permamently or just filled in for the one show, but I'll post more information as it becomes available to me.

 
(Another) Fiesta Bowl Update
Thursday, December 20, 2001

It looks like the band is getting ready for the Fiesta Bowl. Even though they're performing the instrumental version of Star Spangled Banner, the entire band is involved with it (which means Brad Delp and Fran Cosmo are participating despite the fact that they won't be singing).

The whole band has spent the last few days rehearsing, and will continue to do so until the event (they'll even be having a dress rehearsal, from what I hear).

This'll be Boston's first live television appearance (that I know of). As for the time, I've seen 3 different times (8pm MST; 3pm MST; 2:30pm MST). I'll keep looking for more details, and when I find them, you can be sure to find them right here!

Boston Webring Update
Monday, September 10, 2001

If you run a Boston fan site, you may be familiar with the Rock Band Boston Webring. For the last 5 years, the ring's been run by Jody Wager. That's changed as of today.

Over the last couple of months, we've exchanged emails and she told me she wanted to find someone else to take it over. I gladly volunteered to assume responsibility for it. I am now the ringmaster for The Rock Band Boston Webring.

If you have a Boston site that is in the webring, you'll need to get the latest html code to insert. I have relinked to my webring page and I've redesigned the interface (mostly cosmetic changes). There are 2 different interfaces to choose from (they are similar except one uses a regular image, while the other uses Flash animation (nothing too extravagant). To pick thich one you want, go to the webring page.

If you have any questions regarding the webring, please email me (just click on Contact Me).
