I just caught wind of this terrible bit of news over at Y&T...

Brad Delp died on Friday... He was the lead singer of Boston and one of rock's most distinctive voices... :cry:

Not much news out there yet... More will be out about this on Monday...

RIP ~ Brad... :B

Oh shit! Brad was one of a kind. Liked his work with RTZ as well. I will have a beer in his honor or two this evening.

Very tragic indeed.... :(

It's hard for most to understand that for some people, death truly does seem like the best, or only option....

Sad, yet so very real a mindset for some. Not because they choose to think that way, but because circumstances, or consequences for that matter, lead them to feel it's the only possible way to think....

Hard to understand, but so very real.

And not one of us is immune to that level of despair.

R.I.P Brad Delp

Some people get angry at those who commit suicide. I don't. It must truly be an enourmous amount of anguish to finally cause that final step. I'm glad he is no longer suffering.

Well said... I agree with you, Bob... :B

I just hate to hear about something like this... We've all had tough times...

...but you're right... Sometimes, one person can make a huge difference in someone's life when they are on the verge of something like this... I just hate the fact that fate didn't intervene on his behalf and give him that little glimmer of hope when he needed it most...

I always thought that it was so ironic that some of the most talented, kind-hearted and gifted individuals end up leaving this way (or through drugs or alcohol)... and it's a shame that they can't find a way to get something positive out of all the joy they bring to others...

I've had some pretty damn-near hopeless times in the past as well... I guess for me, it had the opposite effect...

One day I realized that the only limits I have in life are the ones I put on myself...

...so I decided a long time ago to grab life by the nuts every day...

Besides, bad times are just God's way of making sure you appreciate the good times...

RIP ~ Brad

Kind of puts a different spin on Boston's "A man I'll never be" doesn't it. That was the first thing that came to mind when I hear it was suicide.
