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.
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...
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.
