BAND of the WEEK


This band is a personal favorite of mine. I used to listen to them all the time in H.S.
Boston is an American rock band from Boston, Massachusetts that achieved its most notable successes during the 1970s and 1980s. Centered on guitarist, keyboardist, songwriter, and producer Tom Scholz, the band is a staple of classic rock radio playlists.

Boston's genre is considered to be hard rock, while combining elements of progressive rock and heavy metal into their music.

Boston's best-known works include the songs "More Than a Feeling", "Peace of Mind", "Foreplay/Long Time", "Rock and Roll Band", "Smokin'", "Don't Look Back" and "Amanda".
Tom Scholz first started writing music in 1969 while he was attending MIT.

They have sold over 31 million albums in the United States, of which 17 million are their self-titled album.
