Earlier this year, rocker Tom Scholz – the legendary musician behind “More Than A Feeling” – granted us a rare, behind-the-scenes look at his self-engineered music studio. While we were at it, he let us into his world, revealing his surprising backstory, his musical insecurities, and his engineering know-how. Then, he topped the whole thing off with an intimate, surprise performance.
Here’s what we took away from the eye-opening experience.
1. When Tom Scholz made it big, he was still working as an engineer.
The first time Scholz heard “More Than A Feeling” on the radio, he was working as a product engineer at Polaroid. He only caught the end fade out.
2. He knows how to dress for a performance.
Represent your alma mater? Yes. Sleeves? No.
