Last Words – Brad Delp – Note
On March 9, 2007, Brad Delp was found dead in his home in Atkinson, New Hampshire. Delp, 55, died from the smoke of two charcoal grills he lit inside his sealed bathroom.
He was found by his fiancée Pamela Sullivan, lying on a pillow on his bathroom floor with a suicide note pinned to his shirt stating that he was a “lonely soul.” The official cause of death was listed as carbon monoxide poisoning.
Brad Delp was known for his considerate nature; he had left a note on the front door of his house warning that there would be carbon monoxide present.
That day, the official website for the band was taken down and replaced with the statement: “We’ve just lost the nicest guy in rock and roll.”
