    OT: Boston to Tour with new vocalist

    Check out how much this guy sounds like the late Brad Delp. Pretty freaky.

    I guess I'm not as impressed with his vocals as you. He sounded pretty good but, in no way, had the vocal range or rock chops of Brad Delp. I wish they wouldn't do the obligatory "greatest hits" tour, which invariably becomes a Vegas-style review. (Maybe I'm a purist. I even had a hard time accepting the Who with Kenny Jones and Zack Starkey.) I mean, this album came out when I was a sophomore in college. No way they could sound like that today, even with Brad Delp. And Michael Sweet? MICHAEL SWEET of STRYPER??!! Come on.

    He sounds like Delp UNTIL he has to get to those high ranges. He doesn't even try. That was one of things that made Delp so unique.
    But, I would still give it a look if the opportunity is there.
    FYI: Michael Sweet has been hanging around BOSTON for awhile. He sang during the Delp Tribute show last year.

    Are they touring now as Boston[SIZE="4"][B]*[/B][/SIZE]?

    BTW - Boston was the worst band ever IMHO.

    Why? That's a pretty strong statement considering all the junk that's come down the pike.

    Out of the box (that's what she said), Boston's first album is an undisputed classic. The songs rocked and Scholtz developed and employed the Rockman, a crunchy modeling device that gave them their signature "space ship meets dinosaurs battling" rock tone. They were always disappointing as a live act, however, because it was almost impossible for them to duplicate that sound out of the studio.

    Absolutely right. His voice is much thinner than Delp's in the higher registers. Not a bad 'imitation' however, overall.

    Listen to his cover of More than a Feeling. It's decent, not a bad cover, but it's not even close to Delp's voice in the higher ranges.

    By the way, Skyhooks is the worst band of all time. I had the "pleasure" of witnessing this car wreck of a band when they opened for some act I saw in the 70s, which might have been Entwistle's Ox. At first it was funny, then I found myself joining the other audience members in the pitching coins, etc., at these clowns.

    That's because Michael Sweet from Styper is singing it, I like his voice more then Delp it's less high pitched.

    This is Tommy DeCarlo, he sings ok but has no ****ing stage presence.

    Brad Delp did all the vocals on the Boston albums. If you hear a vocal, whether it be lead or harmony, it was Brad Delp. Kind of hard to replicate in concert.

    But anyway, I am excited about the tour. Boston is one my favorite bands.

    My friend knew Stryper. They were doing coke and banging chicks on the tour bus. Nothing wrong with that...unless you are pretending to be holy rollers. Then I guess it is still ok.

    I was always blown away how AC/DC replaced their lead singer. I loved Bon Scott and still think he's better but as a replacement Brian Johnson is damn good.

    I guess they couldn't train a screeching cat to prance around the stage.

    I loved Bon Scott. Brian Johnson is so grating.

    I think Tim "Ripper" Owens (Judas Priest) did the best job as a replacement singer.

    Also, Tim Owens and Yngwie Malmsteen are joining in Malmsteen's band Rising Force.

    Don't know which is worse - the band or the city.
