Tom Scholz: Sound Machine

NPR Music (2014)
Director: Joshua Seftel


The man behind the band Boston, whose debut album is one of the best-selling albums of all time, is content to treat the rock star life like a fantasy he can dip into and out – he’s in it for the love of music. Tom Scholz is not only the founder and lead songwriter behind Boston, he hand-crafted the devices that create Boston‘s distinctive sound. In this behind-the-scenes short film, Scholz shows off his hyperspace pedal and the infamous Rockman amplifiers, and performs Boston‘s hit songs “More Than a Feeling” and “Foreplay.”
