Another Musician Dies at a Young Age
The Captain reports on the too early death of the lead singer of the rock band Boston. I don't know the guy's name name and don't care.
This guy may have been the Paul Whiteman of 1970's rock & roll. A very talented musician who gained fame and fortune by playing lousy music. Anyone who attended Prof. Leckrone's Big Bands class at UW should recall his disdain for Whiteman. The Paul Whiteman Band played overly practiced and overly precise "jazz" music. It did not swing and was not big band jazz.
Similarly, every note played or synthecized by this Boston guy was perfect. It was not rock. Boston represents everything wrong with 1970's rock music.
Thankfully this man won the war and changed it all.
The stadium rock fad is dead too. Rest in peace Boston singer. Burn in hell Boston band and music.
