Formed in 1971, Boston was formed by Tom Scholz, whilst doing a master’s degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, when he met fellow guitarist Barry Goudreau, and Jim Masdea, drummer. By 1975, after Scholz’ graduation, the as-yet-unnamed had found a vocalist in Brad Delp and recorded the first drafts of soon-to-become hits “More Than a Feeling”, “Peace of Mind” and “Somethings About You”.
Their self-titled first release, “Boston” (taking their name on suggestion from producer John Boylan) in 1976 was a phenomenal success, breaking sales records, selling over 500,000 in its first three weeks, earning it gold certification, and platinum three months later. Today, it is diamond certified, its sales exceeding 9 million, making it one of the best-selling debut albums in the U.S in history!! All of the singles, including "More Than a Feeling”, "Peace of Mind” "Foreplay/Long Time” and "Rock & Roll Band” were both AM and FM smash hits, giving the band airplay rotation that continues as a standard to this day.
