Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – A profile of the rock band Chicago – originally called the Chicago Transit Authority – from their inception in 1967 to present day is presented. Constants over the entire course of their existence are wanting to be comprised of the best musicians, initially all from their native Chicago (hence the name), and the democracy of sorts which ruled the way they operate as a group. That democracy meant that no one person was ever to be known as the front man, each band member was treated equally – which further meant that the contributions of each person was considered of and treated as equal value even if it didn’t meet the sensibility of some – and each band member was meant to contribute to the best of his ability. After the struggles of being a club band to their initial success finally able to crack airplay on AM radio, they became known as the rare breed of a horn band i.e. that equally featured the horn section unlike most bands of the era solely featuring guitars and/or keyboards. That success and their chosen isolation in living together on a ranch in Colorado had its downside in having easy access to and thus overindulgence to substances, legal and illegal, without any oversight. That success also took a hit during the disco era. The change in focus during the early 1980s in what may be considered the David Foster produced ballad era of the band, it which favored the mentality of Peter Cetera who was then one of its more insecure members, arguably had the potential to derail the band altogether despite their success in this ballad-laden focus as the horn section was often excluded in their recordings. The effects of loss of founding members, guitarist Terry Kath who died in 1978 from an accidental self-inflicted gunshot (which band members agree was the darkest day in the band’s history), bassist Cetera who left voluntarily in the mid-1980s in his overall dissatisfaction, and drummer Danny Seraphine who was fired for his lack of focus especially during live performances, are individually discussed. As an epilogue, the four founding members still with the band speculate what will happen to their relationship in the inevitable end of the band as a unit.
Plot: The history of legendary rock band Chicago is chronicled from their inception in 1967 all the way to the present.

Reviews:

A bit rushed and flawed, but enjoyable all the way.
This is a documentary I’ve been wanting to see for a while because I really like Chicago’s music and this serves as a vehicle for a better understanding of the band’s creative input and output. Evidently, it doesn’t help to fully understand the ups and downs of the relationships between all band members because not every member was involved in the making of this documentary nor with testimony to aid the band’s story. So, considering how conflictingly the band parted ways with whom was the voice and face of the band, Mr. Peter Cetera along with the producer who co-wrote with Cetera some of the band’s most successful tunes, this doesn’t give you the full scope, because there is one side missing.

I like Chicago’s 70’s songs and the latter music of their career as well, so I’m not divided as many of their fans are. In the beginning of the documentary, I felt they were telling the story of their beginnings a little fast; and since I didn’t know how the members looked in real life, I had a bit of trouble remembering who was who and what instrument each of them played. One thing I didn’t particularly liked is that they didn’t even named Peter Cetera until they got to If You Leave Me Now, I think that they should have introduced each of the members at the beginning.

There is a heart-warming tribute to Terry Kath, who contributed enormously to the band’s sound in the early days with his technical guitar playing. Troubles begin when the film reaches the part where Chicago’s musical direction changed. Since in this era of the band, Cetera’s musical input was massive, it’s inevitable for him to take center stage in this story, but his refusal to appear in the documentary leaves many questions unanswered and leaves it without a key point of view to understand the story better. So that is the main flaw this documentary has, it’s only one side of the story, but it’s a decent side, it’s enough to understand how the majority of the members felt during the different stages they went through as the years went by. But I can’t take their truth when it comes to absent members unless we get both sides of the same coin.

To be honest, it’s hard not to enjoy the documentary, even if you don’t think that it comes across as sincere, because it deals with the music of one of the greatest bands of all time, Chicago.

Good Documentary about a Great Group
I saw this over the weekend and really liked it. I learned some things about Chicago and it’s journey that I never knew before. I thought I already knew a lot but there was some good stuff here. My only concern is that this is produced by the band and directed by Lou Pardini’s family member so it is not going to be completely objective. At the end of the day Chicago is a great band with a lot of big egos. The remaining members seem to down play Cetera’s ability as a song writer and his contributions. Cetera is an excellent song writer and had one of the best voices in the business. Clearly Foster took them in a different direction but it seemed like it was a good decision at the time. The really needed a change up in my opinion. I am disappointed Cetera couldn’t check his ego at the door and perform at the Hall of Fame. That would have been amazing. I also thought Bill Champlin was overlooked in the movie. I know he didn’t want to participate but the founders acted like he didn’t have much to offer. Interesting that since this documentary was made that Jason Scheff was also fired. So other than Lamm, Pankow, Loughnane, and Parazaider. Chicago will always be my favorite group but it is too bad that all of the ego’s ended up crushing the stage.
