ATKINSON, N.H. (Mar 12, 2007)

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

Delp sang vocals on Boston's 1976 hits More than a Feeling and Long Time. He also sang on Boston's most recent album, Corporate America, released in 2002.

He joined the band in the early 1970s after meeting Tom Scholz, an MIT student interested in experimental methods of recording music, the group's official website said. The band enjoyed its greatest success and influence during its first decade.

The band's last appearance was in November 2006 at Boston's Symphony Hall.

On Friday night, the band's website was taken down and replaced with the statement: "We just lost the nicest guy in rock and roll.''

My mum told me after I got back from Glasgow this weekend. Absolutely gutted. The world has a lost a great great singer :down:
