SOUNDBREAKING

Nobody Knew That Boston Wasn’t Really a Band At All

  • Aired: 11/15/2016

  • Rating: TV-PG
In the second episode of Soundbreaking, guitarist Tom Scholz chronicles how he nearly single-handedly created the hit record of Boston in his home studio, with the technique known as 'multi-tracking.' Music writer Chuck Granata and Tom Scholz discuss the secret hidden in plain sight--the record company had no idea that they weren't promoting a live band.
