Scholtz is a certified genius. His music isn't my cup of tea either. But the guy is smart. And a great audio engineer as well.


Before his sucess in Boston, Tom Scholz graduated from M.I.T. and worked at Polaroid as a product engineer. He is also the creator of the Rockman headphone guitar amp.

I will most likely see Boston at Rock-Fest 2008 in Cadott WI. this summer...unless I go to Rocklahoma instead ... :beerbang:

I'm out of the loop. I know why Axel is an ass, but what kind of things has Tom done? I'm not doubting you guys; I just haven't heard about it.

Read everything he's said about anything in the last 10 years. You'll see what I mean. :wink:

He's arrogance personified, IMO. Way too arrogant for a band with 2 great albums 30 years ago.

...and that's being nice!

Did you see he got all bent out of shape when Mike Huckabee played "More Than a Feeling" on bass at a fund raiser?
:roll:

Yep. Now he even tries to determine when and where his music is played... and by whom.

The icing on the proverbial cake, though. He's been pissing all over his formed bandmates for years. I realize he was the creative force behind the band... but there were others who contributed greatly to their success. Goudreau, Delp, et al...

To hear him tell it, though, he's been a one-man band since their inception and the rest of the band were little more than window dressing. I still say that the conflict he generated among the band members for all these years was a large contributing factor that lead to Delp's eventual suicide.

What does he do for an encore, you might ask? He starts pissing and whining about who said what about the circumstances of his death and arguing with Delp's ex. :roll:

He's always been an innovator and a top-notch musician. Sadly, he's also a self-centered, juvenile, emotionally-stunted jackass. He makes Axl look like a walk in the park if you ask me.

Or you could just listen to the first two albums and pretend their plane went down after that. :wink:

That's pretty much what I do... but I never wanted the plane to go down, I just wanted an amp stack to roll out of the back and crush Scholz on the tarmac. :shock: :lmao:

Yep... Scholz, Axl and Simmons have missed the point, IMO.

If it's more about ego than music, you're in the wrong line of work, no matter how talented you are.

Unfortunately, I think age has something to do with it to a great degree. I've noticed Alice's quotes are getting a little on the "high and mighty" lately. That's just something that happens to successful people when they age I guess. Hopefully it doesn't get too bad with the artists that we really like.

One significant difference... when Alice gets a little uppity when talking about being snubbed by the R&R HoF and such, he's just a little indignant about not getting the respect he deserves.

When Scholz runs his mouth, he's demanding respect for things he doesn't deserve. :wink:

BOSTON mainman Tom Scholz will be Alice Cooper's special guest on Cooper's radio show "Nights with Alice Cooper" airing Wednesday night, April 16. The program is a classic-rock format and can be heard on over 100 radio stations in the United States, Canada, UK, Ireland, and Australia. Air times differ, so make sure to check out NightsWithAliceCooper.com for more information.

BOSTON will headline the outdoor festival at Marina Park on Friday, June 6 in Thunder Bay, Ontario, at one of the Canadian stops of the Great Race 2008. The 'round-the-globe motor sports event will be making a pit stop in Thunder Bay as a part of its centennial anniversary. The show kicks off a summer of stadium, concert and festival dates that will span the United States and Canada.

BOSTON will be bringing two new recruits on tour this year. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Michael Sweet, the veteran STRYPER frontman, will both sing and trade riffs with Gary Pihl and Tom Scholz on guitar. Unexpected phenomenon Tommy DeCarlo, the fan that posted his BOSTON covers on his MySpace page and ended up on stage, will also be belting out the classics that skyrocketed the band to worldwide fame.
