    ATKINSON, New Hampshire: Brad Delp, the lead singer for the band Boston, was found dead in his home in southern New Hampshire. He was 55.

    Atkinson police responded to a call for help at 1:20 p.m. Friday and found Delp dead. Police Lt. William Baldwin said in a statement the death was "untimely" and that there was no indication of foul play.

    "There was nothing disrupted in the house. He was a fairly healthy person from what we're able to ascertain," Police Chief Philip Consentino told WMUR-TV.

    Delp apparently was alone at the time of his death, Baldwin said.

    The cause of his death remained under investigation by the Atkinson police and the New Hampshire Medical Examiner's office. Police said an incident report would not be available until Monday.


    Delp sang vocals on Boston's 1976 hits "More than a Feeling" and "Long Time." He also sang on Boston's most recent album, "Corporate America," released in 2002.

    He joined the band in the early 1970s after meeting Tom Scholz, an MIT student interested in experimental methods of recording music, according to the group's official Web site. The band enjoyed its greatest success and influence during its first decade.

    The band's last appearance was in November 2006 at Boston's Symphony Hall.

    On Friday night, the Web site was taken down and replaced with the statement: "We just lost the nicest guy in rock and roll."

    A call to the Swampscott, Massachusetts, home of Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau was not immediately returned Friday night.

    lol, sorry did not mean to imply that.

    I dont know much about them, but what I do know, would give the impression that they would do a great live show.

    I didn't see the movie, but IMDB says that it was a band called "Stillwater".

    You can go here to check it out - http://imdb.com/title/tt0181875/

    I guess maybe it was more just a blend of 70's bands. But thought I had read it was supposed to be loosely based on a particular band.

    Thanks Bella
