It was instant love as I found this album was absolutely "Smokin". And I'm not joking.
John "Sib" Hashian was the drummer on Boston's first two albums. The first album, self titled "Boston", may (in my most humble of opinions) be one of the best rock albums ever. I played that album on our phonograph over and over again.
Sib Hashian died on March 22, while performing on a cruise ship with other rock greats. He was 67.
Perhaps a rocker would love to enter rock and roll heaven while performing. In tribute, I'd like to ask you to listen to a handful of other Boston songs.
Hitch A Ride.
And, finally, the song I think is the best song they ever did - "More Than A Feeling". The lyrics and music both transport me to a different place. I read online that it took more than five years to perfect this song.
That's all I have to say. I'm going to close my eyes and slip away....
Another great gone.
No, wait - one more song. "Don't Look Back". Except I do.
Note: In April, I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. Not all of my Monday posts will be music oriented (although the April 8 post will be). I will be back posting music Mondays again starting in May.
