Walk On is the fourth studio album by American band Boston, released in 1994. (See 1994 in music). Walk On is the first and only Boston album to lack Brad Delp as vocalist. Delp was replaced by Orion the Hunter singer Fran Cosmo. Delp left the band in 1990 to join original Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau in forming RTZ.

The Walk On album peaked at #7 on The Billboard 200 and was certified Platinum (1 million copies sold) by the RIAA. However it was a drop off performance wise from earlier Boston albums. This may be due in part because of the following reasons:

  • There was little record company support and promotion for Walk On.
  • The album lacked Brad Delp's signature vocal sound, which is often linked with the 'classic' Boston sound.
  • Music critics generally regarded the album as sub-par.
  • The material on Walk On was considerably weaker than on previous efforts, with many songs having outside co-writers.
  • Grunge and Gangsta Rap were dominating the charts at the time (despite the fact fellow classic rockers Pink Floyd and The Eagles each released #1 albums in 1994), and Arena Rock was considered to be outdated.

The Walk On tour ran from 1994-1995 in both the US and around the world, with both Delp and Cosmo on vocals. Pink Floyd are an English rock band that earned recognition for their psychedelic rock music, and, as they evolved, for their avant-garde progressive rock music. ... The Eagles are an American rock music group that originally came together in Los Angeles, California in the early 1970s. ... Arena rock is a loosely defined style of rock music, often also called anthem rock or stadium rock. ...


The final eight pages of the album's booklet are titled "Walk On -- Against Violence and Cruelty" and are dedicated to preventing Domestic Abuse and Animal Crueltly, providing contact information of numerous organizations, including The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and The Humane Society. The band would do similarly in their next album.

Walking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (853 words)
Walking is the main form of animal locomotion on land, distinguished from running and crawling.
Walking is generally distinguished from running in that only one foot at a time leaves contact with the ground: for humans and other bipeds running begins when both feet are off the ground with each step.
In some countries walking as a hobby is known as hiking (the typical North American term), rambling (a somewhat dated British expression, but remaining in use because it is enshrined in the title of the important Ramblers' Association), or tramping (the invariable term in New Zealand).
