The Fallsview Casino Resort concert continues in June 2015 with a performance by the platinum selling group Boston. This rock band gained fame and notoriety in the late 1970’s and 80’s, but is still relevant in the world of rock and roll today. Original member, and lead rhythm guitar player Tom Scholz leads the way.
Heralded From Boston
Boston is a rock band that got their start in Boston and clung close to their roots to the city. Tom Scholz was always the driving force behind the success of Boston and had his hand in just about every aspect of music production from playing lead guitar and singing backing vocals to producing the albums and writing many of the bands songs. Boston quickly became a very popular rock band and many of their hits from back in the day still get a lot of rotation on classic rock stations. The level of success that Boston achieved is pretty rare. In total, they sold well over 31 million albums in the United States alone and more than half of those album sales are all due to their self-titled debut album.
It is almost impossible to turn on a classic rock station and not hear a song by Boston. They have so many different hits it is hard to count them all. Their most popular rock anthem include:
- "More Than A Feeling"
- "Long Time"
- "Peace Of Mind"
- "Don't Look Back"
- "I Need Your Love" and more.
How Boston Was Formed
Boston got their start as a band back in 1969 when Tom Scholz was attending MIT. It was in college where Scholz began writing songs and joined a band with guitarist Barry Goudreau and drummer Jim Masdea. They would later form their own band and change their name to Boston. Vocalist Brad Delp was the missing link and once he joined the group they began producing their own demo tapes. It did not take Boston long to get the attention of record labels and begin their climb to notoriety and fame in the world of rock.
With new members, but with Scholz leading the way Boston still tours worldwide playing their most famous rock hits.
