Today is Tom Scholz' birthday!  The founder of the band Boston and architect of one of the most popular sounds of the 70's turns 68 today.  He was born and grew up in Toledo, Ohio.  So, it makes total sense that the guy would form a band called "Boston" right?

Tom is an M.I.T. grad (which is in Boston), and he has the invention of a guitar amplifier to his credit.  He's quiet, private, charitable, and vegetarian.  But most importantly, I can't imagine what rock music would have been like without those Boston albums!!
