Thanks for the music, Curly! Enjoy your retirement.

The Professor of Rock YouTube channel released an interview today featuring original Boston drummer Jim Masdea. Check it out.
BOSTON's Gary Pihl has a new project with an album releasing in November.
The Roads is a collaboration between Pihl and singer Mick Devine. It started when Khalil Turk of Turkish Delight sent Gary one of his songs so Gary could add guitars to it. Gary had some ideas for the song that would require changes to the drum parts. Gary was put in touch with the drummer, Josh Devine, from whom Gary later discovered that the vocalist on the track was Josh's father, Mick. Khalil suggested Gary and Mick work together.
The album features many special guests performing, including Boston/Stryper bassist Tracy Ferrie on bass, Lawrence Gowan (Styx), Paul Taylor (Winger), and Josh Devine.
