Boston (the band)
- Tom Scholz first started writing music in 1969 while he was attending MIT, where he wrote an instrumental, titled “Foreplay”. While attending MIT, Scholz joined the band “Freehold,” where he met guitarist Barry Goudreau and drummer Jim Masdea, who would later become members of Boston. Vocalist Brad Delp was added to the collective in 1970. After graduating with a master’s degree in mechanical engineering, Scholz worked for Polaroid, where he used his salary to build a recording studio in his basement, and to finance demo tapes recorded in professional recording studios.
