Remembering Brad Delp of Boston with His Last Known Interview
We were still reeling from the news of Maine music legend, Bill Chinnock's death in the windy chill of an early March. Then came a phone call while I was on the air a couple days later with the unbelievable news that Brad Delp was gone.
This song has always been very moving. After Brad died, it brings tears every time.
I got word from my friend Dave. He was a huge Boston fan and also a loyal follower of Brad's tribute band, Beatlejuice. Dave also had connections to Brad through friends and was the first to share this tragic news with WBLM. I remember instantly choking up and then after composing myself, delivering the sad story to Blimpsters followed by Boston classics for the rest of the show.
On March 9, 2007, the world was dimmed with the loss of a gentle soul with the voice of a rock-n-roll angel.
You can listen to the last known radio interview with Brad Delp hosted by our radio brother, A-Train at the Shark in Portsmouth New Hampshire. It took place just two days before his suicide.
