    ATKINSON, N.H. (AP) - Brad Delp, the lead singer for Boston, a huge rock sensation in the 1970s, was found dead Friday in his home, police said. He was 55.

    Atkinson police responded to a call for help at 1:20 p.m. and found Delp dead. Police Lt. William Baldwin said in a statement the death was "untimely" and that there was no indication of foul play.

    Delp apparently was alone at the time of his death, Baldwin said.

    The cause of his death remained under investigation by the Atkinson police and the New Hampshire Medical Examiner's office. Police said an incident report would not be available until Monday.

    Delp fronted the rock band, who rose to fame in the late 1970s and had several hits, including "More than A Feeling." The group sold millions of records.

    He didn't take his time, but he's moving on.
    Will we forget about him after he's been gone?

    This time, it really was more than a feeling.

    I bet they have 6 albums in the vault, which means the last one will be released in 2055.

    Brad Delp in recent years has done some work with Beatles tribute bands (as Lennon, I do believe). It ain't Boston without him. R.I.P.

    Yeah, I saw Delp in the Beatles band, Beatlejuice, at my high school several years ago. Not a bad show, all things considered. RIP
