    Even though their songs get played on every classicrock station daily still amazes me how ahead of their time sonically they were. Their first releases could have came out yesterday and been a hit still.

    Boston was my first love with purchasing Rock & Roll albums. I had their debut album on vinyl when I was about 4 years old. I had "Don't Look Back" on vinyl as soon as it came out at age 6.

    First time I saw them was 1978 at Anaheim Stadium with Black Sabbath, Van Halen and Sammy Hagar and was blown away. I have seen them many times since, but I have not seen them without Brad Delp. Not too sure I would want to.

    I liked their early stuff, Mr Scholz certainly is a genius in the studio. Their overall sound kinda wore on me after a while, but those first two albums are real gems. Walk on is not a bad album either...

    Caught them shortly before losing Brad Delp at Jones Beach Amphitheater. They sounded just like the albums! Phenominal.......and the stage looked like mission control. Ridiculous system

    I was at that show. It was at Giants Stadium and it was Poco, Todd Rundgren and Utopia, The Outlaws and Boston. Boston was the loudest band I've ever heard. We didn't stay for their whole set, just didn't like them that much although I grew up playing air drums to their first record when I was 13.

    I liked some of their songs that didn't get much radio play.
    They're not one of my favorite bands by any means, but I do have some good memories when I hear Boston songs :)

    Skipped school back then to see some all day festival kinda deal: some local bands, Poco, Doobie Bros. & Boston.

    Ran into them at a red light after the show....they asked for directions.

    My brush with greatness :D


    Every time I hear More Than A Feeling, it seems like just yesterday......not 1976 !!!!!!!!!

    The solo in "Hitch a Ride" is a guilty pleasure of mine.
