    Default Good Boston Cover

    Not that anyone could improve on the original, but it's not bad. I didn't expect much when I started watching it, but the kid nails the lead solos okay and plays the drums, bass, and organ also. The singer is pretty good too... makes me wanna start a Boston cover band. I'm sure they had fun recording the parts. RIP Brad Delp.

    A cover version of Boston's "Foreplay/Long Time" presented in split screen.
    Jon Baglo playing all the instruments.
    Spencer Needham doing all the bg vocals.

    And featuring the amazing David Steele on lead vocal.
    Here's David's web site:

    Note re: the drums... You're hearing take two... a continuous performance with no punch-ins or fixes. Unfortunately, I could not be there to videotape it. So Jon did ONE more take just for the video camera. Hence the discrepancies . I'd say 3 or 4 mismatches during a re-enactment of over 7.5 minutes of drumming is pretty good.

    Tom Scholz should invite these guys up on stage or at least over to his studio. Bravo!

    Good Boston cover? Man, that was right up there with that dude that did Baba O'Reilly on the piano - that was great! Kinda made me think of Tom Scholz back in the studio in '75/'76 putting this together mostly by himself. To me, the singer sounds a bit like Glenn Frey with a dash of Dennis DeYoung - not at all like Brad Delp - but he sounded good with it anyway.

    I suddenly feel incredibly inadequate.

    Best part of it, is that it is a video response to some guy showing off his "Expert" rating on Rock Band for the same song.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

    Who's the expert now?!
