Brad Delp, Lead Singer of Boston, Dies at 55

I just heard the news that Brad Delp, the original lead singer of the group, Boston, died today at the age of 55. At the time of this writing, not much is known about the cause. Just that he died at his New Hampshire home this afternoon and apparently was alone. You can read the news report here.
