The band Chicago, second only to the Beach Boys as the most successful American rock band of all time, has roots which go back to their days at DePaul University, where a group of students began performing at clubs and late-night jams around campus.
Back then, the band which would become Chicago featured trumpet player Lee Loughnane, saxophonist Walter Parazaider, guitarist Terry Kath, trombonist James Pankow, drummer Danny Seraphine ,and keyboardist Robert Lamm. Bassist Peter Cetera would join the group last.
Under the name The Chicago Transit Authority (which would later be changed when the real transit authority threatened suit), Chicago released their debut album in 1969. The work was quite an endeavor; it’s extended jams, complex guitar stylings, and jazz infusions resulted in the singles “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?", "Questions 67 and 68,” and "Beginnings", not to mention lots of heavy airplay.
Their second album, known as Chicago II, became the band’s breakthrough album with "Color My World" and “Make Me Smile.” Through the 1970’s, Chicago released albums at a rate of more than two per year, until 1981 when they jump-started their next career phase with a new Warner Brothers contract, producer David Foster, and new band members Bill Champlin and Chris Pinnick.
Chicago quickly returned to the top of the charts with “Love Me Tomorrow” and “Hard to Say I’m Sorry/Get Away,” from their album Chicago 16. The album which followed, Chicago 17, became the group’s crowning achievement, with the singles “Hard Habit to Break” and “You’re the Inspiration.” They topped the charts again, in 1988 with “Look Away,” off their Chicago 19 album.
In 2010, Chicago toured once again with the Doobie Brothers, as they had previously in 1999 and 2008, and in 2011, they performed a full-length symphonic concert with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra at Red Rocks, outside of Denver.
With over twenty-two gold albums, eighteen platinum albums, eight multi-platinum albums, twenty-one top ten singles, and five number-one albums, Chicago is one of the most successful American bands of all-time.
Chicago has continued to write, record, and tour well into the new millennium.
