    Brad Delp, the lead singer for the band Boston, was found dead Friday in his home in southern New Hampshire. He was 55. Atkinson police responded to a call for help at 1:20 p.m. and found Delp dead. Police Lt. William Baldwin said in a statement the death was "untimely" and that there was no indication of foul play.

    Delp apparently was alone at the time of his death, Baldwin said.

    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.

    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."

    A call to the Swampscott, Mass., home of Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau was not immediately returned Friday night.

    The first rock band I ever listened to. The one CD that will never leave my collection. R.I.P man, you were an inspiration to many.
