The lead singer for the band Boston, Brad Delp, was found dead in his home in southern New Hampshire. He was 55.

Atkinson police responding to a call on Friday at 1:20 p.m. and found Delp dead. Police said in a statement that there was no indication of foul play.The cause of his death remained under investigation by the Atkinson police and the New Hampshire Medical Examiner's office. Police said an incident report would not be available until Monday.

Delp sang vocals on Boston's 1976 hits "More than a Feeling" and "Longtime." He also sang on Boston's most recent album, "Corporate America," released in 2002. I first listen to them when my parents used to play Boston records, when I was young.
He joined the band in the early 1970s after meeting Tom Scholz, an MIT student interested in experimental methods of recording music, according to the group's official Web site. The band enjoyed its greatest success and influence during its first decade.
The band's last appearance was in November 2006 at Boston's Symphony Hall.

On Friday night, the Web site was taken down and replaced with the statement: "We just lost the nicest guy in rock and roll."
