BOSTON s Tom Scholz Looks Back  InTheStudio On The 35th

Dallas, TX - JULY 29, 2013. North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History s Greatest Rock Bands goes behind the curtain with the wizard of rock,Tom Scholz, for the 35th anniversary of Boston s second smash album Don t Look Back. Boston s self-titled debut album had blown up two years prior, becoming the # 1 selling debut album of all-time and keeping that title for more than three decades. The pressure to deliver again was monumental, and exactly two years to the month (August  78) Boston released Don t Look Back which would sell over 4 million records in just the first month of release and produce hits,  Don t Look Back ,  A Man I ll Never Be and  Feelin Satisfied . Shortly after the success of their second album, Boston s Tom Scholz found himself at the beginning of a long and protracted  David vs. Goliath legal battle with his record label Epic Records, which Scholz would eventually win seven years later. Tom describes some of the harrowing details of that ordeal to InTheStudio host Redbeard.

 To get into the position of controlling these major labels... these people are smart and ruthless; have clawed their way and destroyed the competition until they got to the top. You re not talking about a real sweet bunch of guys...A lot of people thought I was really stupid for not just kissing butt and going along with it, but I unfortunately can t help it. I m really rebellious by nature, and as soon as somebody does something to me that I think is wrong, I will not let it go. I just keep going with it until I m satisfied with the result, or I have nothing left to fight with.

Friday night, April 19th, 2013

Tonight I'm going to bed a little prouder of the city of Boston, a little prouder to be an American. The amazing selflessness of responders at the Marathon attack, the outpouring of grief and support from an entire city - an entire country, followed by the relentless determination of thousands of professionals and citizens over the past five days that culminated in the removal of these two murderous cowards from our streets has renewed a spirit of hope after the horrible losses that have weighed on us all.

I like to think that adversity has made me pretty tough. I woke up on Tuesday with stoic resolve to forge ahead in spite of what had just happened the day before. But when I turned on the TV 24 hours after the bombings, and saw that picture of little Martin, I broke down. I'm thankful I was alone at that moment, I still can't think about it without tears.

I wonder if others have the same feeling, that all four of those who died were not just young, but were the kind of wonderful human beings who brought joy and light to those around them. These were the targets of the maniacs. These and the dozens of horribly injured innocent people whose only crime was to help celebrate someone's personal achievement at the Boston Marathon. The lives that will be forever altered number in the thousands.

People struggle to make sense of it, but of course there is no sense to be made. Whether psychotic savagery is inspired by religious fanaticism, or some other motivation really makes little difference; the needless loss and suffering that result are utterly without logic regardless of origin. I think it's this lack of an actual reason, even a perverse one, that makes the loss even more devastating.

In the news tonight reporters spoke of relief now that the second killer has been apprehended. For me it was not relief from fear that a madman was no longer on the loose, but from the uncertainty of whether justice would prevail, and how long it might take.

For those twisted individuals who think they have delivered a message to us, I say you have failed. Without reason there is no message, and we here in Boston are not afraid.

We may not be perfect, but this is one hell of a city, one hell of a country.

Tom Scholz

To Infinity and Beyond...

Many exciting things are moving forward as we head into spring 2013.



Tom is buried in the studio, lovingly coaxing his legacy analogue equipment to bear with him just a little longer while he wraps up the mix of his latest song, "Someday." Although he has listened to it more times than he cares to count, he is still very excited about it, saying, "This final song might be the title track for the new BOSTON studio album; it reminds me of the up tem...po rockers I wrote for the debut album over 30 years ago."

With a little more tweaking, then some re-tweaking, then a tad more tweaking, Tom says the new album should be ready for release by mid year ... that would be mid year 2013. "After completing this mix I only need to redo vocals on a couple of the cuts, remix them, and sequence and master the album. After working on this project for over 10 years I can finally see light at the end of the tunnel," he says. Tom plans to start work on the long awaited BOSTON live DVD as soon as the studio album is finished.

Meanwhile, ebony porn in other cool news, Gibson is honoring Tom and his original Les Paul with a limited edition Gibson Custom Collectors Choice guitar. (His is #10.) From Gibson: "If you've ever listened to the music of the legendary rock band BOSTON, then you've already heard the latest Collector's Choice Les Paul. In its own right, this example of a 1968 Goldtop (now with the top stripped off the original finish to expose its maple top) is an amazing instrument; a nice, "cheeky" neck, a flexible tone palate via Tom's preferred P-90 and DiMarzio Super Distortion pickup combination, and a patina that comes from a lifetime of extensive live and studio use. One of two in Tom Scholz's collection, this particular '68 Les Paul Goldtop Deluxe is the first 'real' guitar Tom ever owned, acquired over 30 years ago and essential to his very unique sound and career." Tom Loves the attention to detail that was apparent in duplicating his guitar. He says, "The precision with which Gibson has replicated the physical properties of my original Les Paul is astounding. This guitar feels and plays exactly like my guitar, and the resemblance to the original is uncanny. But most impressive is that it actually sounds like my guitar! I'm really humbled that such an elite shop would go to so much trouble to reproduce the guitar I play." Tom says he will donate all the proceeds from his royalties on the sales to charity.
