  • Chicago Loses Two Band Members in One Week: Whos Gone Whos New

    4:28

    Chicago Loses Two Band Members in One Week
    This is a band that has had a revolving door of members through the years but just this week bassist and vocalist Jeff Coffey and drummer Tris Imboden both announced they were leaving for family reasons. They were kind of saying the band tours too much for them.

    Coffey's note to the fans said, “I am coming to you today with a heavy heart to announce that I am also leaving Chicago. In fact, we both played our last show earlier this week. As many of you know, my family is my whole world! We’ve all faced this same dilemma at some point, I’m sure. As Tris eluded, the scale here leans more and more towards heavy touring, with NO time for anything else. It wasn’t the right balance for me. As Chicago moves forward, I wish them continued success with their long and illustrious career.”

    Chicago released a statement wishing Tris well and announcing Walfredo Reyes Jr. who has been playing percussion for the band for the last 5-6 years would be their new full time drummer. He's also played with Carlos Santana, Steve Winwood and Smokey Robinson. The statement also said goodbye to Coffey saying “While Jeff was only with us for a short time, we are grateful for his considerable contributions and his dedication. We wish him continued success with his solo career and in all his professional endeavors.”

    The band also addressed the toll of being on the road, “The rigors of touring are immense. Now, in our 51st consecutive year of touring, we understand the toll it takes on families, the birthdays and milestones that are missed and the strain of being away from loved ones for weeks at a time. Chicago routinely plays over 100 events a year. When you add in travel days, band members are away from home for over 150 days a year. It is a difficult life, but also one filled with tremendous rewards. We look forward to sharing those rewards as we welcome new members to the band.”

    And the announcement of their new singer, “Many of you are already familiar with Canadian Neil Donell who has been enthusiastically received as a guest vocalist with Chicago on occasion, we now welcome him as an official band member taking over lead tenor vocals. On bass we will be joined by Brett Simons who has toured and recorded with musical icons such as Brian Wilson, Fiona Apple and Melissa Etheridge. We will be posting more about these new members in the weeks and months to come, and hope you will embrace them with the same love and support you have for all present and former Chicago band members.

    Jeff Coffey had been with Chicago since 2016 – he replaced Jason Scheff which in turn replaced original bassist and vocalist Peter Cetera and Tris Imboden since 1990 he replaced original Chicago drummer Danny Seraphine.

    Chicago has four remaining members of the band from the good old days vocalist and keyboardist Robert Lamm and the horn section Lee Loughnane, James Pankow and Walter Parazaider. Walter is still a member of the band but touring is not part of his life anymore. - by John Beaudin

  • Peter Cetera On David Foster Rejected Tunes From Chicago 16 - Interview #7

    2:16

    Peter Cetera On David Foster Rejected Tunes From Chicago 16
    Foster might have been criticized for bringing Chicago more into a David Foster band but that first album he produced, “Chicago 16,” in 1982 reached #9 on the Billboard chart. Other than it's follow up, “Chicago 17” two years later (also produced by Foster) which peaked at #4 it was the last time the band had a Top 10 studio album.

    We heard the stories that on first working with the band David Foster rejected the bands songs on Chicago 16. So Was Peter Cetera's songs rejected? CLIP

    Peter Cetera says “You're The Inspiration,” one of the four hits from the album was especially special for him. (Clip)

  • Chicago Blues: A Living History

    Grammy nominated Chicago Blues: A Living History is being hailed by critics,musicians and music historians worldwide as the greatest tribute of our time to the Chicago Blues.

  • Peter Cetera Done With Chicago After Declining Another Reunion at Songwriters Hall Of Fame

    6:05

    Peter Cetera Is Done With Chicago After Declining Another Reunion at Songwriters Hall Of Fame
    This story is almost anti-climatic and really not surprising considering the same thing happened at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year so here we go again. Robert Lamm and James Pankow will be honored at Songwriters Hall Of Fame next week in New York and Cetera will not be there.

    Cetera's response, “Music is supposed to be fun, and nothing about that evening was pointing towards it being a joyous occasion. I mean, there’s a reason why we’re not together, you know. And I’m sure we’re both happy with that. Basically, they didn’t want to work with me nor did the show want to work with me to see if something could happen. And I begrudgingly tried to make it happen, even though I didn’t really want to do it. There’s been too much water under the bridge. And so be it. I just couldn’t get up there and fake like I was having a good time.”

    I know there are many fans who are disappointed but Cetera's allowed to say no. In these case's I always say the same thing – do you want to go on a road trip with you're ex-wife? Maybe your neighbors didn't want you to break up because you were such a cute couple but they weren't living with you either and have no idea what went on in that house. There are people close to the band that know some of the stories and I've heard a few but ultimately, like a family, like a couple, there are secrets, stories, dirt that we will never know and If you've been together as long as these guys have there's lots of dirt. Music is also so competitive and Chicago was and is a big band.

    I reached out to former drummer Danny Seraphine after that “so called” Chicago documentary a few months ago and he was pissed. Was Chicago playing fair with their ex-members liked Cetera, Bill Champlin, Donnie Dacus in just making them wrong but remember as Cetera says there a lot of water under the bridge.

    I have a good relationship with my ex-wife Lynn but I'm not so sure we'd still be talking if we were in the same rock band for 50 years. At least there's sex in a marriage!

    I would love a reunion with all these guys. I respect them all. I still have all those albums and listen to them often. I remember in 1974 at 14 being pissed off at Chicago V11 that the whole album didn't sound like (I've Been) Searchin' So Long and Wishing You Were Here but then I gave the album a real shot. Opening with Seraphine's Prelude to Aire going into “Aire” by Jimmy, Walter and Danny. That was a trip and so my journey began. I bought every album before that.

    They say never meet your heroes. They can be jerks – sometimes. So can we. - by John Beaudin

  • Chicago has Replaced Singer Jason Scheff with Jeff Coffey: What Happened?

    1:46

    Chicago has Replaced Singer Jason Scheff with Jeff Coffey..So What Happened?
    The guy who replaced Peter Cetera in 1985 is now gone himself. After three decades Scheff and Chicago have parted ways.

    The band released the following statement: Chicago would like to officially welcome bassist / vocalist Jeff Coffey to the band! Jeff has been touring with Chicago in recent months, filling in for long-time member Jason Scheff.”

    We are so grateful to Jason for the enormous contribution he has made to Chicago over the last 30 plus years. Everyone wishes him and his family all the best as he continues his musical journey.

    In May the singer/bassist took a leave of absense from Chicago because of, “important family health issues that may need Jason’s personal attention.”

    Then Scheff told his friends and fans on Facebook, “I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your understanding and respectfulness of my privacy during these challenging times due to family health reasons,” Scheff said in a post to his Facebook page.

    “And to address any of the rumors floating around, I make it a personal policy to not respond to silly and crazy things. Just to make things clear, I'm not leaving the band. We're in the middle of a pretty great run and I'm having the time of my life,” Scheff said.

    “Other than that we're all hanging in there. Thank you again for your respectfulness.”

    There were hints of this coming. Just lat week Earth, Wind and Fire's bassist Verdine White said on Facebook, Thank you all my family friends and fans, for your comments regarding long time Chicago member Jason Scheff. EWF loves honors and respects his choice to move forward with his life,

    Scheff is appearing a new show called 'American Supergroup' with Jennifer Nettles.

  • Big Chicago Reunion with Jason Scheff, Bill Champlin & Danny Seraphine

    3:18

    Big Chicago Reunion with Jason Scheff, Bill Champlin & Danny Seraphine
    Well this doesn't happen everyday! Of course we've all heard of he band CTA featuring Seraphine who was on those Chicago albums from their first Chicago Transit Authority up until Chicago 19 – he left in 1990 and Bill Champlin who was with Chicago from Chicago 16 in 1982 – their comeback project until almost ten years ago but having Scheff in the fold is pretty special. He replace Peter Cetera for Chicago 18 in 1986 and left a few years ago.

    There they were on stage last night at the Rose Theatre in Pasadena, California and Bill Champlin's wife Tamara shared video on her Facebook of them playing Chicago's cover of Spencer Davis Groups 1967 hit “I'm a Man” which Chicago released two years later and their #3 hit 'Hard Habit To Break.” Former Doors guitarist Robby Krieger also joined them on stage for the Doors the title to “LA Woman” from 1971.It was cool to see the rhythm section of Chicago back together.

    Thanks to John Zaika who is buddies with Bill Champlin for sending us the pictures. He told me that Jason was there the night before for Danny who turned 70 on August 28th.

    You know Chicago has only three original members left of the classic lineup vocalist keyboardist Robert Lamm, and two of the three from the horn section Lee Loughnane and James Pankow. So, as of last night, it was even but the band Chicago still has the name but if anything last night there were two different universes flying around. - by John Beaudin

  • Lost Interview: Peter Cetera On The Chicago Songs Hes Most Proud Of

    2:51

    On part six of our lost interview with the former lead singer of Chicago we want to share an honest clip of a guy who is asked over and over again his former band when really he just wants to move forward CLIP

    But he did share what Chicago songs he's most proud of CLIP

    Cetera says the 1982 hit “Hard to Say I'm Sorry” was especially gratifying since by then the critics had all but written off the band. CLIP

    We will have more from our lost interview with Peter Cetera next Friday. - by John Beaudin

  • Peter Cetera Defends His Solo Music Sounding Like Chicago - Lost Interview

    5:15

    Peter Cetera Defends His Solo Music Sounding Like His Old Band Chicago
    He left the band in the summer of 1985 right after their hit album “Chicago 17” which featured 4 hits, Stay the Night,Hard Habit to Break,You're the Inspiration, and Along Comes a Woman. Cetera sang lead vocals on three and co-lead with Bill Champlin on another.

    We have been going through the three large boxes of interviews that broadcast journalist Steve Burgess donated to us about 15 years ago. Old reel-to-reels that needed a lot of TLC to make them broadcast worthy. Steve was one of my closest friends for about 15 years and he had a go-for-the-jugular attitude to interviews. He would ask the questions that other broadcasters wouldn't ask. So when Cetera was promoting his biggest solo album “Solitude/Solitaire” he asked something that something that I would never have asked – why would you leave Chicago to make Chicago music? (Clip 0111)

    That's a good point. Cetera said at the time he had a hunger to be known as an individual not just a singer in a band (Clip 012)

    This long lost interview that hasn't been aired on radio since the late 80's shows a real perspective to his mindset on leaving the band. We will have more of our lost interview with Peter Cetera next Friday. For more info on Peter go to PeterCetera.com – by John Beaudin

  • “1968” exhibit at CHICAGO HISTORY MUSEUM + a “CHICAGO SEED” bonus

    4:41



    The 1968 exhibit ran from October 4, 2014 through January 5, 2015 in Chicago.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    From WIKIPEDIA:
    “Seed was an underground newspaper launched by artist Don Lewis and Earl Segal (aka the Mole), owner of the Molehole, a local poster shop, and published biweekly in Chicago, Illinois from May 1967 to 1974; there were 121 issues published in all. Disagreements between Lewis and Segal led to its purchase by Harry Dewar, a graphic designer and Colin Pearlson, a photographer, who thought it had commercial potential. Lester Dore took over the art direction when Don Lewis moved to New York to work for Screw magazine. Skeets Millard, a young photographer and community organizer who was publishing the Chicago edition of Kaleidoscope, joined the Seed staff in 1969, at a time when all of the original founders were gone and there was no one working on the paper who had been there more than 12 months; Mike Abrahamson was running the paper in Abe Peck's absence. Jim Roslof, Karl Heinz-Meschbach, Paul Zmiewski, Skip Williamson, Jay Lynch, Peter Solt, and other 60s artists contributed to what was called one of the most beautiful underground press publications of its time.

    The Seed was edited for several years by Abe Peck. Among the staff writers were Marshall Rosenthal and Eliot Wald. It was notable for its colorful psychedelic graphics and its eclectic, non-doctrinaire radical politics, and was a member of the Underground Press Syndicate. It was a real DIY operation: in the Seed office copy was set on an IBM Selectric and pasted up, negatives were made and stripped up for plate-making, and inks were mixed to take to the printer. The Seed, along with the San Francisco Oracle, was one of the first tabloid newspapers to use split fount inking on a web press. At its peak it circulated between 30 and 40,000 copies, with national distribution. Important events covered by Seed writers and artists were the trial of the Chicago Eight, Woodstock, and the murder of Fred Hampton. After losing its original printer in 1968 it was printed for a time on the presses of liberal Wisconsin newspaper publisher Bill Schanen, who provided printing services for a large number of Midwestern underground papers that could find no other printer.”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The Chicago History Museum on January 30, 2014 hosted a panel discussion about the history of CHICAGO HOUSE MUSIC. A video of excerpts from that presentation is also on YouTube channel TheMotionDevotion.

More platinum albums followed – ‘The Wild Heart’ (1983), ‘Rock A Little’ (1985), and ‘The Other Side Of The Mirror’ (1989).

    In 2019, Stevie Nicks made history by becoming the first female artist inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice - first as a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1998, and most recently in recognition of an extraordinary solo career that spans nearly 40 years.

  • The Doors - history - where they performed in Chicago

    6:56

    ~ Auditorium Theatre ~
    (Two at Chicago Coliseum)
    (Two at Auditorium Theatre)
    Chicago was home to four Doors concerts. All four took place within minutes of Chess Records where the greatest Blues musicians in the world lived & recorded...the likes of Willie Dixon (wrote Back Door Man, Little Red Rooster, and Close To You for Howlin' Wolf), Johnny Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers, and others.

    THE DOORS ~ LIVE IN CHICAGO
    ** HISTORIC DATES **
    5/10/68 Chicago Coliseum
    Jim, refreshed and roaring to go, incites a riot this night escaping through the backstage door while the crowd of 4,000 destroys the stage. During the 8:30 p.m. show one teen gets so excited he does a swan dive off the balcony. Jim is now pushing every button, raising every level as far as they will go, both personally and professionally, just to see what will happen.

    11/3/68 Chicago Coliseum (demolished in '82)
    The Doors play one afternoon show at 3:30 p.m. The show is just the opposite of their rowdy appearance here on May 10th and from the outset Jim and the band are subdued to the point of hypnosis. Jim is obviously slowed by alcohol and off key yet remarkably graphic and poignant during The Celebration of the Lizard which the band plays before closing with an airy version of Light My Fire.

    6/14/69 Auditorium Theatre (first show after Miami incident on 3/1/69)
    2/15/70 Auditorium Theatre

    Tickets to these shows were between $2.50 - $6.50. They often played an Early Show and Late Show at each of the dates. Please contact me, if you were at any of these shows or have first hand stories from someone who was at any of these shows.

  • Marty Salzman On Chicago Blues History

    3:40

    In this clip from - Marty Salzman, an independent artist manager, talks about the background of blues music. Historically, black artists performed blues for black audiences in the Southside of Chicago. Salzman lists some of the famous blues clubs in the Southside, such as the Checkerboard Lounge and the 708 Club. Eventually, blues gained a white audience and soon there were white and black blues players. Salzman explains that more and more clubs opened on the Northside, such as Blues Etcetera. Also in this segment, Salzman discusses the club scene today. He claims that there were more clubs twenty years ago then now. He shares his belief that this is because people don't have to go out anymore to see performances. Easy access from technology like DVDs and Pay-Per-View has quieted the club scene.

    Hi guys, my name is Uzo, and I am a Professional DJ, Designer, Business Consultant, Artist, and Community Activist who has spent four years studying Chicago House Music Scene and while building Uber Technologies in Chicago. As a professional DJ and event producer, I had the honor to be living my trace on the history of the world by living my voice and input in regards to music as it made impacts on my life and cultural developments with MALA National, Library of Congress, Voice of America, Museum of African American History & Culture, & The White House. I had a blessing to meet and be a part of history while playing alongside some of the greatest legends of house music, such as Terry Hunter, Paul Johnson, Jesse Saunders, Mark Farina, Julius TheMad Thinker, Gene Farris, DJ Madrid and many more. During the 2015 commemorations of Frankie Knuckles' life, I had an opportunity to meet most of the house legends in Chicago and meet the family of Frankie Knuckles. That moment was priceless, and I will forever remember that Boiler Room Day at SmartBar & Gramaphone records.

    July 23, 2019 – It's Jeff Coffey week on Rock History Music. We premiered his new video yesterday. There's a link to the video right at the top of the desciption of this video. It's a great cover John Waite and the Babys Hit, “Back on My Feet Again.” When Peter Cetera left Chicago in the 80's his replacement was Jason Scheff who was with them until 2016. Thats when Jeff Coffee stepped in as vocalist and bassist. But he left in 2018 citing their crazy touring schedule. Scheff was there when he auditioned for Chicago so he knew him but Peter Cetera well he met him not that long ago.
    Clip 14, 5

    It's Jeff Coffey week on Rock History Music. Join us at 1PM central each weekday this week for our five-part​ conversation with Jeff at 1PM eastern. Tomorrow Jeff will reflect on his days with Chicago. He joined the band in 2016 and left in 2018. We talked to him right after he left but we'll see how he looks at that experience now. Go to Jeff Coffey Music on Facebook for more on him and check out his new video “Back on My Feet Again” on this channel there will be links at the end of this video and in the description of the video. - by John Beaudin

  • A Tough Message from Chicagos Lead Singer Neil Donell

    6:20

    Here is the message from Neil Donell. Life as a touring musician is not without its challenges but I am by nature, a grateful person and do my utmost to honor the gifts the creator has bestowed upon me. But this tour has been exceedingly difficult as my dear mother passed away quite suddenly at the beginning of the tour, and yet, the haters persist, making disparaging and hurtful comments about whatever they do not like about me personally or my contributions to the band. I am disappointed that these “adults” have little better to do with their spare time than to attack and criticize someone they do not even know. It’s so very sad and shameful and often, quite cruel.
    Thank you to those who have reached out to me in kindness during this difficult and heartbreaking time. ????

    NOTE: The Aragon no longer stages dance events such as this but the Green Mill DOES ! It’s right around the corner from the Aragon and every bit as historical. On Thursdays they clear out a section of tables which becomes a dance floor on which an amazing mix of people enjoy swing dancing to the music of Alan Gresik and his Swing Shift Orchestra. The Green Mill describes it as “an old time radio broadcast up close and personal”. Young hipsters rub shoulders with grizzled dance veterans who twirled on that very floor decades ago. It’s a sight to behold and great fun.


    From WIKIPEDIA, here's an interesting bit of info. According to legend, the secret tunnels under the nearby Green Mill bar, a Prohibition-era hangout of Al Capone, lead to the Aragon's basement.

  • Ramsey Lewis Presents Franz Jackson With the Chicago Making History Award

    6:26

    Several months before his death in May, 2008, Franz was notified that he was to be awarded the Theodore Thomas History Maker Award for Distinction in The Performing Arts by the Chicago Historical Society. The award ceremony took place on May 15th, nine days after Franz left us. The jazz legend, Ramsey Lewis, presented the award to Franz's daughter, Michelle, who accepted it on his behalf.

  • Did Chicago Photoshop Singer Jeff Coffey Off Their Album Cover?

    3:35

    This is a bit strange. The band Chicago have two new live albums coming out on Rhino Records on October 26th of this year. Greatest Hits Live featuring 13 tunes recorded while vocalist Jeff Coffey was still in the band (he left in Jan, 2018) and their 1970 Isle of Wight set. It's the former that many fans are talking about. It seems that Coffey is absent from the cover. Some say he was photoshopped out? Why was this necessary? It's another chapter with the band and bad blood with former members.

    Now there is an online petition to change that cover. It reads, The legendary band, 'CHICAGO', will release their new album through RHINO Records on 10/26/2018. Bassist/Vocalist, Jeff Coffey, was deliberately removed from the album's cover. Along with playing bass throughout, he is a featured vocalist on 9 of the 14 album cuts. Jeff's time with the band ended prior to this release, thus seeing no value in including his likeness along with everyone else. This is unacceptable to many. Please sign if you are a dedicated CHICAGO fan who will not consider this release as legitimate or for purchase, unless the cover is corrected. Either a proper/fully representative band shot or a classic-style CHICAGO logo in place of stage shots. Check it out here
