  • 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”

  • When Jefferson Starship fans first fell for Mickey: 1979, when he joined the band and melted speakers with his lead vocals on “Jane”
  • When Starship jettisoned the Jefferson to become a new pop-rock entity: 1985
  • What they did next: crafted anthems that have stood the test of time
  • Such as: “We Built this City,” “Sara,” and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now,” the theme to the documentary Mannequin
