The Meck Radio Show: Long Time Memories of Brad Delp. [reposted]

Message from Tom Scholz - posted on www.bandboston.com
As you all know by now, BOSTON'S lead singer, Brad Delp, was found
dead in his home on Friday, March 9th 2007. Plans for live BOSTON performances this summer have, of course, been cancelled.

My heart goes out to his wonderful fiance Pamela, his two children and other family members, his close friends
and band mates, and to the millions of people whose lives were made a little brighter by the sound of his voice.
He will be dearly missed. -- Tom Scholz

Brad Delp .. The Singer with The Heavenly Voice that would Reach Out and Lift You Up.
Brad Delp .. The Man who was a Servant to Everyone he met. He loved People more than his Music.

He sold over 30 million albums and no doubt touched millions of lives even off the stage.
If he ever shook your hand .. and said 'Thanks For Coming ..' You knew he meant it.
Brad's grattitude was an attitude that was genuine. Life was More Than a Feeling to him.

Thanks to Marty Hom and Glenn Matthews for always including me on The Boston Tours.
I can't believe I'll never hear Brad again in concert. He was always the last one to leave.
The reminiscing, autographs, pictures, hugs. No one could greet and meet like Brad Delp.

Brad had TIME for everyone. The Greatest gift you can give anyone.

Thanks to Brad's close friend, Bill Faulkner, for reaching out and connecting with me.
I met him many years ago with Brad. Saw him in Atlanta in 2003 [ Chastain Park concert].
He's always encouraged me. Just like Brad.
I appreciate his kind and gracious words.

Subject: Thank You, Meck

Meck,
I want to thank you for the wonderful, heart felt article you wrote in remembrance of my friend Brad.

From the minute he met you in Atlanta, you were part of his lexicon, part of his life, a friend. We would often fondly recall "The Meck", your heart and your kindness. He would always look forward to the southeast shows, as that meant he'd visit with you again.

It meant a lot to Brad when you invited him to the ballpark in Atlanta, and we all had a memorable time. You took such good care of us, like we were family, although we had known you for just a day. I have great photos of that event taken by Walter, the legendary Braves official photographer.

You have a wonderful heart Meck, and you made an impression on Brad. Whenever we spoke of The Meck, we would smile and a story or two would ensue, always punctuated with an enthusiastic "It's Time To Smell The Cornfields, Baby"!

Yesterday, we said goodbye to our friend in a very private ceremony in New Hampshire.
Again, thanks for your heartfelt remembrance.

Best Regards,

Bill Faulkner

I hope we can interview you soon regarding your dear friend .. Brad Delp.

Coming soon .. We'll post some interviews we did with Brad on our Radio Show.
And we might post some video clips from Brad's visit to Dothan with Javy.

Thanks for listening today as we pay tribute to our friend Brad Delp.
The internet is full of praise for Brad's music and even higher adoration for him as a person.

What will they say about you when you die?
Will they say anything at all ?

Brad Delp's Legacy is that he Served Others. Giving him Everlasting Fame and Fortune.
Will your legacy outlive your music [ your profession] ?
It's the question we all must ask ourselves.
Meck

T I M E spells L O V E
Written by Eddie Carswell and Michael O'Brien

T I M E spells L O V E

Throw me the ball Daddy
I've been waiting all day
I'm so glad you're home and we got some time
So Let's go out and play
Just me and you
It's my favorite thing to do
Daddy I'm tellin' the truth

Chorus
T I M E time
Spells L O V E love
And Love is the one thing
This world needs more of
The choice is up to you
So what will you do
With your T I M E Time
and your L O V E love

I'll never forget you Daddy
You taught me the game so well
It's taken me places I never dreamed
So many stories to tell
How the time has come and gone
And now I have a son of my own
And I'm making sure your memory lives on

Bridge
I've heard it said a time or two
This game of life can take from you
But I found out love isn't really love
Till you give it away
