  • 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

  • The Story of Richard J Daley Mayor of Chicago

    26:10

    Bóthar go dti an Whitehouse is a TG4 series telling the story of how the Irish changed the face of American politics charting the history of Irish-American politicians from the 1800's up to JFK's election as the first, and only, Catholic president of the United States.

    Richard Joseph Daley was born in Bridgeport, a working-class neighborhood of Chicago on May 15,1902. He was the only child of Michael and Lillian (Dunne) Daley, whose families had both arrived from the Old Parish area, near Dungarvan, County Waterford, Ireland during the Great Famine. Daley would later state that his wellsprings were his religion, his family, his neighborhood, the Democratic Party, and his love of the city.His father was a sheet metal worker with a reserved demeanor. Michael's father, James E. Daley, was a butcher born in New York, while his mother, Delia Gallagher Daley, was an Irish immigrant. Richard's mother was outgoing and outspoken. Before women obtained the right to vote in 1920, Lillian Daley was an active Suffragette, participating in marches. Mrs. Daley often brought her son to them. She hoped her son's life would be more professionally successful than that of his parents. Prior to his mother's death, Daley had won the Democratic nomination for Cook County sheriff. Lillian Daley wanted more than this for her son, telling a friend, I didn't raise my son to be a
    policeman.

    He served as the Mayor of Chicago for a total of 21 years (1955–1976) and chairman of the Cook County Democratic Central Committee for 23 years, holding both positions until his death in office in 1976. Daley was Chicago's third consecutive mayor from the working-class, heavily Irish American Bridgeport neighborhood on Chicago's South Side, where he lived his entire life. Daley is remembered for doing much to avoid the declines that some other rust belt cities like Cleveland, Buffalo and Detroit experienced during the same period. He had a strong base of support in Chicago's Irish Catholic community, and he was treated by national politicians such as Lyndon B. Johnson as a pre-eminent Irish American, with special connections to the Kennedy family. Daley played a major role in the history of the Democratic Party, especially with his support of John F. Kennedy in 1960 and of Hubert Humphrey in 1968.

  • 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.

  • Peter Ceteras Thoughts On Chicago 18 - The First Without Him

    1:49

    Peter Cetera Shares His Thoughts Chicago 18 – The First Album Without Him #5
    That album without Peter Cetera was released September 29, 1986. It was a great project with two big hits, “Will You Still Love?” and “If She Would Have Been Faithful.” The former peaking at #3 on the Billboard charts.

    Being a founding member of Chicago of course he was curious about it's sound but first his opinion on the group re-doing their classic 1970 hits “25 or 6 to 4” on Chicago 18? CLIP

    4:12

    Why did Bill Champlin get to sing lead on the Diane Warren tunes? We asked the former member of Chicago. He also talks about Chicago's last #1 tune “Look Away.” Long before he joined that band Champlin recorded an album that's become a favorite among fans of west coast music 1981's “Runaway.” The album featured an all-star cast including David Foster (who produced most of the album) guitarists Jay Graydon, Steve Lukather drummers Jeff Porcaro and John “JR” Robinson and bassists Leland Skylar and Abraham Loboriel. One of the tunes from that album has become a west coast classic - “Sara.” It was co-written by Alan Thicke. - 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.

  • Peter Cetera Moves Farther Away From Chicago & Looks For Duets Partner

    4:45

    Peter Cetera Leaves Chicago Behind Looks Into Forming a Duet
    I like that Cetera will still answer questions about Chicago. He could easily say, “I don't want to talk about something I left 32 years ago – yeah it was 1985! Of course Chicago is the big pink elephant in the room and no one will ever stop talking about it.

    Cetera told Knoxville News Sentinel that he doesn't want to sound like a cliche' but he's never had so much fun on stage. He's backed by a great band and doing exactly what he wants to do. The singer says long ago he learned an important lesson from a friends father, who was in the music industry, to be conscious of what you like and don't like and discard the latter. To be aware that one learns something from everything you hear and, “then one day this voice comes out of you and it’s yours. … I don’t think I really figured out who I really was until I started doing the solo albums. Maybe the last album I did with Chicago and the first solo album it was my voice, my role. You feel confident, relaxed.”

    Looking back at his last few years with Chicago Cetera says, “People were bringing in songs that were just weak … so David Foster and I started writing songs and the things we coming up with were really good,” Cetera said. “What are you gonna do? Pick songs that aren’t worth it? And it was kind of right at the time that was ushering in videos and the director of a video will go, ‘Well, who’s the singer?’ The lead singer is always the lead actor in the videos and that was me. So, yeah, it caused a lot of strife and hence the parting of the ways. They didn’t like that. What do you want me to do, stop writing? So it was a problem.”

    Cetera, who lives in Idaho, says he doesn't ever see a reunion happening with Chicago adding, “there really isn’t a group any more. Different drummer, different guitar players and they have stand-ins some nights. I don’t even know if the sax player is with them anymore. Really, it’s more like a sound-alike group now, I think.” He also called the Chicago documentary a ‘crockumentary.’ saying he like to make his own documentary of him watching, “The History of Chicago” and stopping the video every-time something false comes up to say, ‘Now, this is what really happened.’

    Cetera does sound happy in the interview. We will post the links in the description of this video. At one point he says he's just happy to tour, do shows and not stay home just to get fat. He does have a few things left to do including his dream of forming a duets partnership ala Sam and Dave with the likes of Steve Winwood and Paul McCartney.

    “One day I’d like to do a male-male duet ala Sam and Dave. Nobody does that anymore. It’d be great to do it with someone like Steve Winwood. Paul McCartney. I’d love to do it with him.” - by John Beaudin

  • 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

    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

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
