That's sad. Perhaps he saw this and just couldn't take it.

This just took the wind right out of me. Delp always struck me as a nice guy, and he had one of the best voices in rock and roll. If you're familar with the drama that is Boston, then you can only be amazed that Delp was able to work with both sides of the various lawsuits. I've seen Boston in concert a few times and was hoping to see them again during their summer tour.

Just awful news.

Awful. He had one of the most unique voices in rock in my opinion.

I always had hopes of seeing them in concert but never got to.

There are a couple famous bootlegs around that show off how good the band and Brad sound. Well worth it if you can track them down.

Very unfortunate and very true. We are used to seeing people who show the outwards signs of depression being the one's who take their own life. Delp's death shows us how it can effect even those who seem to have the great things ahead of them. Please get help yourself or look after those who seem to be dangerously near suicide.

Dimeadozen had around 10 or so posted this last week, including the Long Beach show which is probably the most famous. Excellent soundboards. If you can't find them, Lisser, talk to me in the hub and I'll get you hooked up.

I just read about it being suicide.. my first thought was.. "why the hell is the family releasing this info?". If authorities need to, fine, but why would someone's family make such an announcement? Weird.

Tragic ... and unnecessary, but he lost hope and was unfortunately determined to end his life.

http://www.comcast.net/music/index.jsp?cat=MUSIC&fn=/2007/03/15/611554.html&cvqh=itn_delp

He sealed himself inside his house with two charcoal grills. The car exhaust was "option" 2.

Clinical depression distorts peoples perception on life. He must have fealt worthless and been in tremendous pain to "forget" his fiancee. I hope she can "forgive" herself, as Brad was determined to hide his depression and end his life. There probably was very little she could do to help him, especially if he did not want help.
