Overview

Here is the inside story of Chicago, one of the most successful and enduring rock bands ever. With their distinctive blending of soulful rock and horn-infused urban jazz, Chicago has thrilled music fans for more than 40 years with their lyrical brilliance. In this no-holds-barred memoir, legendary rocker Danny Seraphine shares his dramatic-and often shocking-experiences as the popular supergroup's cofounder and longtime drummer. He reveals behind-the-scenes anecdotes about Chicago's beginnings as the house band at Los Angeles's legendary Whisky A Go Go, where they were discovered by music icons Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, and personal insights about the group's many comebacks and reinventions over the years. Whether you're a diehard Chicago fan or just love a well-told rock-and-roll memoir, Street Player will entertain and surprise you.
