Bradley E. Delp (June 12, 1951 – March 9, 2007) was an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist of the rock band Boston. Delp was known for his extremely high range, and is often cited as a key influence in the rock music vocal scene.

Though well known for his [size=small]"golden" voice with soaring vocals and range[/size],
Brad Delp was also a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, harmonica, and keyboards.
Additionally, he wrote or co-wrote several songs for Boston and many other artists.

Taken from here

While reading about the Boston (1976) album I found this:

By the way, this is what Head-fi'ers say about Michael Jackson's singing.

IMHO, Brad Delp knocks Michael Jackson down in the first minute of the first round!

Metaphorically speaking - Brad Delp (Cassius Clay) vs. Michael Jackson (Sony Liston):

Michael Jackson was an "entertainer", Delp was a musician; a freakin good one at that.
