Brad Delp RIP

I have a long list of topics I want to cover in my blog, not including the day-to-day events going on here in New Orleans.

One of them is the death of Brad Delp, lead singer of the band Boston. He died on March 9, 2007. (That's how far behind I am!)

From Wikipedia:
On March 9, 2007, Delp was found dead in his home in Atkinson, New Hampshire. Delp, who was only 55, died from the smoke of two charcoal grills he lit inside his sealed bathroom. He was found by his girlfriend Pamela Sullivan lying on a pillow on his bathroom floor with a suicide note pinned to his shirt. The official cause of death was listed as carbon monoxide poisoning. That day, the official web site for the band was taken down and replaced with the statement: "We've just lost the nicest guy in rock and roll."

Rest in Peace, Brad.

Here's the cast of Scrubs doing what I think is Boston's greatest song:

That's got to be the strangest way to commit suicide.

Very sad.

Great song, though.
