Chicago has a special feeling for Foster, as they were the first major group Foster produced, and after their success, he went on to be one of the greatest music producers in the world and win numerous Grammy, Emmy and Juno awards.
Foster produced Chicago XVI, XVII and XVIII, which included some of the band’s biggest hits: “Hard To Say I’m Sorry,” “You’re The Inspiration,” “Hard Habit To Break” and “Will You Still Love Me?”
Foster came backstage to congratulate the band on their recent performance on the Grammys, and for their Chicago Transit Authority album to be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame this year.
Said Foster after the concert, “Please tell all the guys that I absolutely LOVED the show. It was spectacular - the playing, the singing - so tight, so perfect!!! After hearing that giant body of impossible achieving work, it just confirms that I was a mere blip on the radar.
Going down early Chicago memory lane reminded me of why I love music and why I am addicted to their unique, brilliant sound!! It was an unforgettable evening!”
