The legendary "Rock n' Roll Band" named for the town they're from ascended in the mid-to-late-1970s with lightly progressive hard rock marked by the high-crying reach of late lead vocalist Brad Delp and wailing multi-voice backing harmonies of his bandmates. Boston issued two multi-platinum albums and a string of tracks that became classic rock radio staples -- "Don't Look Back," "More Than a Feeling," "Peace of Mind" and "Foreplay/Long Time" --and experienced a comeback of sorts with their 1986 third LP and its soft rock chart-topping ballad, "Amanda." Lead vocal duties are currently filled by Tommy DeCarlo, a fan who penned a song dedicated to Delp after his 2007 suicide and was among the vocalists invited to sing at a concert in Delp's honor. DeCarlo was welcomed into the fold on a more permanent basis after the departure of Michael Sweet, who left his four-year stint singing with Boston to re-focus on his main band, Stryper.
