July 29, 2021 –

Dear FB group members, It has come to our attention that an administrator from another FB group is telling people to make a choice between Terry Kath FB groups meaning our group and our sister group Searchin for terry Kath based on the false pretense of a conflict of interest. The truth of the matter is the administrator in question, sexually harassed our Administrator via Messenger texts and is trying to save face. We have the entire conversation screenshot, as evidence of the harassment. As in most of these cases, the harasser is trying to make the victim out to be at fault. It is time to make a stand, in order to try, prevent, and end this online harassment, at least in this case. We trust you will make the right decision and make a difference here.

Dr. Chicago Review What would Terry think?

By now you’ve seen the endless barrage of new Chicago Zoom vidtunes, the “new” songs, The Christmas songs, The making of the Chicago Christmas Songs, and you ask yourselves what is going on?

This is marketing gone wild so to speak. In a year of the worldwide pandemic, social distancing, cancelled tours, Chicago strives to remail relevant for the almightly buck. Are they succeeding? The diehard fans seem happy but, isn’t it time to move on?

There are so many fine tribute bands out there, Chicago has but two original members left with a third cameo jumping in to smile from time to time.

What would Terry think? What do you think? Send you answer to the website email on the homepage!

We all have heard about Hank Steiger. He was Terry’s trusted friend and guitar tech. Today, marks the 15th anniversary since his death. Hank worked with Chicago as Terry’s guitar tech then continued on with Chicago working for them 35 years. Hank received the famous Cartoon Guitar from Terry which was passed down to his wife Kathy and stepson, Trevor.

Thanks to one of our members Rick Parfait, we were able to get these pics from Chicago XXX cd that was dedicated to Hank.
