Video of the Week: Terry Kath and Vintage Chicago Tear Up ’25 or 6 to 4′ in 1970

If you’re one of those wondering why the band who sang “Hard to Say I’m Sorry” was just elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I submit Exhibit A.

In their heyday, Chicago smoked. And lead guitarist Terry Kath was breathtaking.

Robert Lamm wrote the song. Peter Cetera sang it. But as Lamm acknowledges at the song’s end, it’s Terry Kath’s showcase.

Know what makes Rock and Roll great? The fact that a song about sitting around a recording studio doing nothing can sound this exhilarating.
