Why Peter Cetera Is Not Participating In Chicago's Rock Hall Induction


.
On Tuesday Why Peter Cetera Is Not Participating In Chicago's Rock Hall Induction was a top story. Here is the weekend recap: Peter Cetera has revealed his reasons for not taking part in a reunion jam with Chicago when they are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this spring.

He released the following statement on his website explaining his decision, "Regretfully, I've decided NOT to participate in the 2016 HoF induction ceremonies. I appreciate the award and I want to thank all of you who voted and finally made it happen.

"Many of you will be disappointed and that's understandable. Quite frankly, I'm disappointed as well. There comes a time when you need to make a decision based on what's best for you without worrying about the consequences and this it that time.

"Every idea or suggestion I offered about how it could work musically was either rejected or changed by the shows producers. Together with the fact that while I sent those same emails to the group, the only reply I ever received back from them was a very snarky 'Take a chill pill dude!' Whoa! Really?

"At this point in my life, I really don't care to reintroduce the same negativity, misplaced egos, and petty jealousies I experienced years ago. I'm very happy right where I am now, touring and playing my music with a band I love. You should all come and see us if you have the chance and please check my site for performance updates. Peacefully moving on, Peter". -
