Always miss you Brad Delp

On March 9, 2007, the world lost one of the greatest voices of my generation, Brad Delp, the lead singer of Boston. When he died I felt a piece of my heart break away and still feel so much loss. I will argue with anyone that he was the best singer ever born - the guy could sing anything, even had a Beatles tribute band the last years of his life - but from everything I've ever heard or said he was also the truly nicest guy in rock 'n' roll. I miss you Brad!



MORE THAN A FEELING

I looked out this morning and the sun was gone
Turned on some music to start my day
I lost myself in a familiar song
I closed my eyes and I slipped away

It's more than a feeling, when I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
'till I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walkin' away

So many people have come and gone
Their faces fade as the years go by
Yet I still recall as I wander on
as clear as the sun in the summer sky

It's more than a feeling, when I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
'till I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walkin' away

When I'm tired and thinking cold
I hide in my music, forget the day
and dream of a girl I used to know
I closed my eyes and she slipped away
She slipped awa y. She slipped away.

It's more than a feeling, when I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
'till I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walkin' away

Hi Beverly! Just like you I was deeply saddened by Brad Delp's death. I have always been a big Boston fan and his beautiful music will always be played in my house in his memory.

I still can't believe he's gone.
