Donald Thomas "Tom" Scholz (born March 10, 1947) is an American rock musician, inventor, engineer, and philanthropist, best known as the founder of the band Boston. He is also the inventor of the Rockman guitar amplifier. He has been described by Allmusic as "a notoriously 'un-rock n' roll' figure who never enjoyed the limelight of being a performer," preferring to concentrate almost exclusively on his music, and in more recent years, spending much of his time working with charities.

3After succumbing to pressure from Epic Records, he released Boston's second album, "Don't Look Back", in 1978, just two years after the group's self-titled debut album. Since then, new Boston studio albums have been released at eight year intervals - "Third Stage" (1986), "Walk On" (1994) and "Corporate America" (2002).
4Though the Scholz written Boston song "More Than a Feeling" is one of the biggest album oriented radio hits of all time and established Boston as a melodic rock giant, some credit the song's guitar riff with inspiring the grunge era.

Other members included Bradley Delp on vocals and guitar, Barry Goudreau on guitar, Fran Sheehan on bass and Sib Hashian on drums. By the release of their third album, only Scholz and Delp remained from the original line-up. When "Walk On" came out in 1994, Scholz was the only remaining original member still in the band.
