Boston's Tom Scholz Hasn't Listened To New Music Since 1974

Boston rocker Tom Scholz admits that he doesn't keep up on trends in music. During a recent interview with MusicRadar, he claimed that he hasn't listened to any new rock bands since 1974.

When asked about his opinions on U2 and the Police he said: "I have to confess: I don't know who they are. I don't mean to be disrespectful, but I don't listen to any other music - not since about 1974."

"The only times when I'll hear other music will be at the ice-skating rink or the gym - you know, if I go out and somebody's playing something. I don't listen to the radio in the car, and I do that because I don't want to be influenced."

He adds: "The closest I can come to answering that question is, I can probably tell you when it's an old Jeff Beck song or early Led Zeppelin - I can recognize Jimmy Page. I can tell you that I can always recognize a Boston song, even if it's in a noisy place. I can hear that it's Boston even before I know what song it is. If a Boston song comes on in a club or somewhere, I notice that it's Boston, and the second thing I notice is what song it is."
