Brad Delp dead at 55 March 9, 2007

Posted by daveintexas in guitarsrockandroll.

UPDATE: Found this live Youtube video of a live performance at the Meadowlands around ’79.  It’s a little rough, but it shows Brad and the band playin Smokin’ and having a damn good time with it.  Not a bad way to remember him.

*click on it again past the “owner doesn’t allow embedded” message, and you’ll see it in another winder.

Another man with a non-human voice

Cause of death unknown.

Brad could belt out some incredible vocals.  His ultra-tenor voice was monster on all of their first three albums (spanning two decades but ok that’s nitpicky of me).

All seriousness aside, he was a great vocalist, and I’m sorry he’s gone.

Requiescat in pacem Brad.

Thanks for posting this. I’m going to listen to Foreplay/Long Time now just for the memories.

There’s something about a good Lead Singer’s voice that’s Undefinable. You know it when you hear it.

That band has a pretty interesting (strange) history. Scholz had (I think) a well-deserved beef with the other guys, but I think he remained on good terms with Delp.

Delp had an incredible voice. Inspirational. Feelin Satisfied has to be my favorite song of all time. RIP, man.
