About Chicago

According to chart statistics, Chicago is second only to the Beach Boys as the most successful American rock band of all time, in terms of both albums and singles. If that fact's surprising, it's because Chicago has been underrated since the beginning of their long career, both because of their musical ambitions (to the musicians, rock is only one of several styles of music to be used and blended, along with classical, jazz, R&B, and pop) and because of their refusal to emphasize celebrity over the music. From the beginning of their emergence as a national act, they've been able to fill arenas with satisfied fans. And beyond the impressive sales and chart statistics, their music has endured, played constantly on the radio and instantly familiar to tens of millions.
