Second only to The Beach Boys as the most successful American rock band of all time, Chicago has been hitting the Top 40 album charts for five decades. Formed in the mid-'60s, Chicago brought together the academic approach to music (three founding members were music students at DePaul) with the music of the streets (they would moonlight in local clubs where they absorbed the sounds and picked up more band members). The group began as a politically charged and often experimental rock band and evolved into a softer sound with hit ballads like "If You Leave Me Now," "Hard to Say I'm Sorry," "You're the Inspiration" and "Look Away." With eight multi-platinum albums and 21 Top 10 singles to its credit, Chicago is still going strong. The touring lineup includes co-founder Robert Lamm, the keyboardist and vocalist who wrote such Chicago hits as "Beginnings," "Saturday in the Park" and "Dialogue." Other co-founders still with Chicago's nine-person lineup include trumpet player Lee Loughnane, trombone player James Pankow and Walter Parazaider, who plays sax, flute and woodwinds.
