Cosmo is a rock band that was formed by Fran Cosmo and Anthony Cosmo, both former members of the rock band Boston.


Band History



Cosmo was originally formed in the mid 1990's shortly after Fran's return from Boston's highly anticipated 1994 Walk On tour. The group experimented within the realm of Post-Grunge and Brit-Pop which controlled the radio, and it was in this time period that the group recorded several songs which would eventually be released on Boston's "Corporate America" Album. On January 13, 1999, Tom Scholz, Brad Delp and Fran Cosmo appeared on Rockline Radio to debut two of these songs; concurrently introducing Anthony Cosmo as the newest member of Boston. The new material included an extended version of Cosmo's "Turn it Off' (which lacked several guitar and organ solos found in the final cut) and 'Someone', which featured Brad Delp on vocals. However, masterfully edited and 80's guitar-laced versions of Cosmo's "Turn it Off", "Cryin'" and "Stare Out Your Window" would ultimately appear on Corporate America as a massive departure from the rest of the songs on the disc. Following the subsequent Corporate America tour, Fran and Anthony departed from the band and re-formed Cosmo in its current form.
