Bone Bash XV: Boston, The Doobie Brothers, and John Kay & Steppenwolf
- Boston’s center: multi-instrumentalist Tom Scholz
- What Tom was doing while working for Polaroid in the ’70s: recording Boston’s demos in a basement studio he built himself
- How that worked out: he quit Polaroid when he started hearing “More Than a Feeling” on the radio
- Record-setting record: Boston’s self-titled debut became the best-selling pop debut in history until it was supplanted in 1986 by Whitney Houston
- Boston’s sound: arena rock populated with monster riffs, youthful lyrics, and harmonies as tight as a unitard on an elephant
- More than 40 million: the number of records sold by The Doobie Brothers
- Their sound: pristine vocal harmonies and guitar-driven melodies
- Essential hits: “Takin’ It to the Streets,” “Long Train Running,” “Listen to the Music”
- The sound of John Kay & Steppenwolf: motorcycle-revving guitar riffs, deep, raspy vocals full of soul
- Essential hits: “Born to Be Wild,” “The Pusher,” and “Magic Carpet Ride”
- The name “Steppenwolf” came from: the novel by Hermann Hesse
