So, I remember in late 2011 there were a lot of optimistic messages about new music being written and recorded and also a soundboard series on premium access, etc.  Does anyone have news about…Continue

So far I haven't seen much discussion of the Dialogue soundboard recording or the three new rerecorded classics up for sale. I wish they were 99 cents a download, but other than that, I'm still…Continue

So, I remember in late 2011 there were a lot of optimistic messages about new music being written and recorded and also a soundboard series on premium access, etc.  Does anyone have news about anything on that front??  (I know about the remix album.  I appreciate the experimentation but...it's not my cup of tea and it's certainly not newly written material.  There have been a few soundboard songs but not too many).See More

"I'm a Foo Fighters fan, too, and I was really shocked to see that Drew played percussion on a song on the new album, a song called "Arlandria."  It's weird to have a Chicago member on a Foo song, huh???"

I've been in bands for years but I've never covered Chicago even though they're one of my favorite bands. Even though the "classic years" and Terry Kath, etc, is my favorite era, Bill Champlin taught me a lot about singing.  Today I'm playing in an acoustic trio and I managed to work in "Look Away" inspired by the Bill/Keith acoustic version on YouTube.  I know, I know...it's a Diane Warren song, etc, but I think it'll be an unexpected song for people.  You don't hear people play it live often,…See More

Laudir de Oliveira

So, in all the posts on here about the history of the band and favorite members, etc, I rarely see Laudir mentioned. Now, I know he's not a HUGE part of the band's history, but with the band adding permanent percussion onstage again, I was just sort of wondering if the band ever kept in touch with him and what the circumstances of him leaving were. Wikipedia says he teaches music in Brazil these days. I know that 80s music moved away from percussion, etc, but I was just wondering a bit about… Continue

New version of Another Rainy Day in NYC

so, I found the free download of another rainy day in NYC. I almost didn't download it because, hey, I have Chicago X. I'm a fan, you know? But I thought that maybe the quality would be better and I'd replace my other digital file of the song. So then I listened and immediately noticed that it's a new version with Scheff singing. I don't see much discussion about this on here. What's the thought behind remaking an old Chicago song? It was kind of fun and completely unexpected. I didn't think… Continue

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakwale300@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Stella
