Chicago's Robert Lamm: "One of Our Songs Is Being Played Virtually Every Minute"

We've come too far to leave it all behind," crooned Chicago's former bassist Peter Cetera. These lyrics from the 1977 hit "If You Leave Me Now" are still relevant for a band that's sold more than 100 million albums in a career spanning 45 years. 

Chicago is one of the first bands to incorporate brass as an essential element of its sound, a signature style as definitive as the roman numerals that mark almost all of the group's albums. They've successfully adapted to changing times, from underground beginnings and tours with Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, to their role as pop linchpins and stadium headliners. These tireless troubadours remain.
