When I was a little kid, there was a lotsa cool things on the radio and music stores; but I was just a kindergarten student and can't get much things.
There was a golden age on the all fields of arts, especially in the musical scene, and even the most "commercial" and less "artistic" things are really fine; and among those things, I remember about nice songs like "Saturday in the park", "Happy man", "If you leave me now" and "Baby, what a big surprise".
Chicago. I knew the band's name, but knew nothing about it.
I heard it was a rock band, but "Hard to say I'm sorry" hardly sounds like a rock' n roll song. No way.Recently, a few months ago, on a night of dull boredom and curiosity, I decided to read something on Wikipedia about the band that created the songs I enjoyed when I was a little kid.
So, I learned about Terry Kath, the forgotten guitar hero; about the "Chicago Transit Authority" album; about Terry' tragic (and stupid) death; about one of most interesting Chicago' members, a brazilian guy - the percussionist Laudir de Oliveira; about how cool Peter Cetera was at those times, and how dull him is now ("Glory of love"? Please, gimme a break...!); so, I put my hands to work and I tried to get at Youtube the things about which I had read.
And I discovered things like "Does anybody really know what time it is?", "Someday", "Ballet for a girl in Buchannon", "South California purples", "Questions 67 & 68"... and, OhMyGoddess, "25 or 6 to 4"! Man, what a shockwave!
Currently, I hear Chicago very often. "Ballet for a girl in Buchannon", "Does anybody really know what time it is?" and "25 or 6 to 4" play very often in my mind, as if it were battle hymns inside a soldier's mind.
And I really like it. Chicago WAS a REALLY, REALLY cool band! Sometimes, I wonder what's happened with that wonderful band, if Terry Kath hadn't died, if they hadn't succumbed to the influences of "champagne lifestyle".
How could it be?
What do you think about it, guys?
