    Just ran across this for the first time this evening. Wow, Chicago can still get it done, even if "virtually".
    Looks like only 3 of the original guys are still on board, but the other guys sure seem to be enjoying it!
    Keith Howland really gets around on that Strat.
    Rushing the season a little, I admit, but...

    Sorry, IMO Chicago died with Terry, but I loved their first three double albums, and nothing really after that.
    Here's a bit of trivia- James Pankow's (the trombone player) brother is John Pankow, who played Paul's cousin Ira on the Paul Reiser/Helen Hunt sitcom Mad About You, as well as appearing in many stage productions, and lots of other well know TV series and Hollywood films

    James wrote some of Chicago's most well known songs, as well as doing the horn arrangements for the band

    Good rendition for a virtual concert. It's not really my type of music, I think it somehow lacks the verve or that certain spark of energy or whatever you want to call it, that the early Chicago provided. It just doesn't makes my feet tap....

    Points well-taken! There's just something about this video that makes me smile-- maybe just the way these guys are enjoying doing what they do. The same can be said for a ton of other bands and artists too, I guess! It's all good!

    Well it's certainly nice that they keep up the spirit of playing together!
