Chicago Won't Be Reuniting With Peter Cetera At Rock Hall After All (Top Story)

On Wednesday Chicago Won't Be Reuniting With Peter Cetera At Rock Hall After All was a top story. Here is the recap: Contrary to earlier comments made by a band member, Peter Cetera will not be reuniting with Chicago for a performance at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

Chicago's Robert Lamm released a statement on Tuesday revealing that he misspoke in an interview where he said that the former singer/bass player would be reuniting with the band at next year's event.

Lamm said in an interview published this week by Radio.com that Cetera would join the group when they perform at the induction ceremony but now says that he misunderstood Cetera.

"I've mistakenly said Cetera would be playing," Lamm said in a statement. "He has emphatically declined. My email exchanges with Cetera were misinterpreted by me, and I've apologized to him, and likewise apologize to the music press community and fans."

Lamm also discussed in the Radio.com interview why Chicago has never reunited with Cetera. He said, "[Cetera] just wanted out. Several times, we've been approached to do a tour together, he just didn't want to do it.

"We were getting very, very attractive offers from promoters. I said, 'Come out with us: you can have your own bus, you can bring whoever you want to bring on the tour, you can sing the songs you want to sing, you don't have to play bass.' He said, 'I'll never say never, but I don't want to do that right now.'" -
