Street Player: My Chicago Story
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 forty 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.

I was hmmm 8th grade Catholic school in Chicago when CTA came out. I was not sure what to think originally but I did get hooked. Beginnings became the prom and wedding song for so long.,....and I became an adoring fan of these guys. My ex wife and I went to the memorable concerts those at aire crown, the old Chicago stadium and in Madison Wisconsin when Chicago 16 came out......I adored this book but not Danny's problems through his life. Thanks Danny S for the great drumming I still listen to.......and from the book telling me of "Little one" thank you a fellow Chicago guy adacguy@Yahoo.com. ken
