Boston Still Doing It Tom's Way

(antiMusic) A cynic would say that Boston's Tom Scholz is probably a huge influence on Axl Rose, as Scholz paved the way for Guns N' Roses in two very important ways: he proved that a band's debut album could sell an absolutely insane amount of copies. Then he proved that once you had that fan base, you could take as much time as you want to release a new album.

Tom Scholz really wrote the book on how to break the rules and still win in rock n roll. So it's no surprise that he's breaking another big rule. Normally a band puts out and album and then goes on tour to promote it. Not Boston, they're heading out on tour and will then go back into the studio to finish the album. That's great news for fans because they'll most likely get to see the band this summer and then again after the album is done.

Now here's the report: Boston leader Tom Scholz tells Billboard.com he hopes to finish recording the band's next studio album after its summer tour and have it out "just after the first of the year." Scholz says the album -- Boston's first since 2002's "Corporate America" -- is a mix of "really straightforward rock 'n' roll songs and some things that are pretty esoteric. - The article goes into more depth and they also discuss the impact of Brad Delp's suicide on the Scholz.
