Chicago is an American rock band formed in 1967 in Chicago, Illinois, calling themselves the Chicago Transit Authority in 1968 before shortening the name in 1969. The self- described “ rock and roll band with horns” began writing politically charged rock music, and later moved to a softer sound, generating several hit ballads.
The group had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Customer Service; Subscribe; Buy this issue; Billboard biz.
