Peter Cetera and Danny Seraphine to Join Chicago For Rock Hall Induction

The original lineup of Chicago, minus the late-Terry Kath, will reunite on the stage at the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next April.

Robert Lamm confirmed the event to Radio.com (via Classic Rock), telling them "If there’s ever a time that we can share a stage again, this is it. I think it could have a huge emotional impact on the audience."

Chicago waited 22 years for the call, a time that went by without even a nomination until this year's vote. The original lineup of Chicago, Peter Cetera, Terry Kath, Robert Lamm, Lee Loughnane, James Pankow, Walter Parazaider and Danny Seraphine, will be inducted.

Lamm also said he thought that the band would perform Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is, Saturday In The Park and Beginnings at the induction adding "If there’s a jam at the end, I think 25 Or 6 To 4 would be perfect, because of all the guitar players being inducted. That song has been sampled so many times by hip-hop guys that even NWA could get in there."

Four of the original seven members continue to play with Chicago. Terry Kath died in 1978 from a self-inflicted gun shot wound while handling a gun that he thought was unloaded. Cetera left the band in the summer of 1985 to concentrate on his solo career. Seraphine left in 1990.

I have not seen confirmation anywhere that Danny Seraphine has agreed to attend. And Peter Cetera is NOT coming.
