Boston’s city of origin: Boston
Boston’s center: multi-instrumentalist Tom Scholz
What Tom was doing while graduating from MIT in 1970: honing his skills as a songwriter
What he was doing while working for Polaroid post-graduation: 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
Since then: they’ve sold more than 31 million albums
Boston’s sound: arena rock populated with monster riffs, youthful lyrics, and harmonies as tight as a unitard on an elephant
Essential tracks: “Peace of Mind,” “Amanda,” “Smokin,” and the immortal “More Than A Feeling”
The Doobie Brothers
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”
4: the number of Grammy Awards they’ve earned
2004: the year they were inducted into the Vocal Hall of Fame
What singer-songwriter-guitarist Pat Simmons says about his band’s influence: “We have entered a territory that we never imagined for ourselves, as far as being a part of the cultural landscape.”
What guitarist and founding member Tom Johnston says in regard to the group’s balance between touring and recording in the studio: “The Doobies have always been about playing live.”
