Biography

Donald Thomas Scholz (born March 10, 1947) is an American rock musician, songwriter, inventor, engineer, and philanthropist, best known as the founder of the band Boston.
Scholz is an MIT-trained engineer who designed a recording studio in an apartment building basement. The first Boston album was mostly recorded in his basement studio, often using devices he designed and invented. After the success of Boston, he founded Scholz Research & Development, Inc. to develop and market his inventions, many under the Rockman brand. He was described by AllMusic as an “un-rock n’ roll” figure who did not enjoy the limelight of being a performer, preferring to concentrate on music, production, and inventing new electronic equipment. In more recent years, he has dedicated much of his money and time to charitable work.
