Have you ever wondered if the band Boston is actually from Boston?
According to WikiPedia :
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 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”. It has sold over 31 million albums in the United States, of which 17 million were for its self-titled debut album and seven million were for its second album, Don’t Look Back. Altogether, the band has released six studio albums.
The band was born from Tom Scholz who attended MIT and through various band met what would be assembled as Boston. It was in his basement in Watertown that Scholz constructed a studio (spending everything he made over the course of 6 years), and was recording a demo tape that would go down in the history books. Scholz and his wife Kim still live in Boston.
