Old Days was the beginning of the Pete Show. Guercio was still producing. VII, X, and XI saw the rise of Pete as the hit maker. The Phil Ramone produced stuff was weak IMO. So was the Tom Dowd record.16 had Foster at the helm.Cetera had pop hits w/Chicago long before DF came into the picture.
I think Leonid, the bass player, organized them to do just ONE song in a studio for him. That blossomed to the point where their covers have four and five million views, and they're still relatively unknown. They've done a couple of visits to the US recently (I'm not sure if they've been able to make their currently planned east coast visit). They're just as good in person. Ksenia showed up in a black catsuit. Now that's a visual. Their lead singer, the little guy that does the Cetera stuff, is involved with defending the Ukraine (I think he's from Kyiv). Hope he makes it out okay.Leonid and Friends. I was almost stunned when I came across them. Excellent group.
So true.... 100% proof that firearms and alcohol DO NOT mix, as you all know the story from January 1978, out in California.It’s a damn shame that he blew his brains out.

"Terry Kath and the guys were hanging out, at one of the Roadie's apartments. Terry Kath was a gentle "firearms enthusiast" as it was documented. They were partying, getting drunk, dabbling in a little this 'n that... And tragically, Terry Kath started waving his 9mm handgun around, and the guys all told him to put it away. Terry Kath (drunk out of his mind) pressed the magazine release, ejecting the loaded mag. But he failed to remember he still had a live round in the chamber. His famous last words were: "What's the matter? You think I'm gonna blow my brains out?" and proceeded to hold his 9mm up to his temple and squeezed the trigger. BOOM.... The world lost an amazing guitar player, and, Chicago as a band, was never the same."
