Sorry about the post explosion. I’m just losing my mind today.
I really feel the pain of musicians who have killed themselves. Maybe it’s because you can go back and listen to their lyrics, their voices, and for a moment know exactly what they were feeling.
Lately I’ve been researching Brad Delp, singer for Boston. He killed himself about 2 years ago with a 2 charcoal grills in his house. At first everyone thought it was because the band screwed him out of money, but later the story turned up that he had put a secret camera in his girlfriend’s sister’s bedroom and got caught. The sister threatened to tell the girlfriend. He apologized a million times and said he was going through some tough times in their relationship. A week later they found him dead with the note pinned to his shirt: “Mr. Brad Delp. J’ai une ame solitaire. I am a lonely soul.”
Who knows what it was really about. All I know is when I hear his amazing voice, it gives me such a sad feeling. “I closed my eyes and I slipped away…”
