From the Inside Flap :

In Street Player, legendary drummer Danny Seraphine, a founding member of the iconic band Chicago, tells the dramatic story of his rise from the very mean streets of Chicago to the pinnacle of rock fame and fortune in the 1960s, a watershed period in music history. In this riveting book, Seraphine offers vivid portraits of his fellow band members and reveals how Chicago differs from all other bands and why they have captured the hearts of millions of fans worldwide.

This lively inside story is filled with fascinating and colorful tales from Seraphine's time on the road. He recalls how his first meeting with Janis Joplin nearly turned into a fist fight (and how she sweetly apologized afterward), why Jimi Hendrix invited Chicago to tour with him, and how Hendrix, a former paratrooper, calmly reassured him during a very turbulent flight. He talks about touring with the Beach Boys, Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, and other music legends. Seraphine's tales of learning and perfecting his craft, and of how he pushed his and the band's art to their limits and beyond, are told with an unforgettable passion and urgency.

Seraphine shares moving and heartfelt stories of his life. For example, in the winter of 1965, as a high school dropout, he stood alone in his mother's kitchen wondering what had happened to his dream. He had thought he would be a professional drummer by then, basking in the roar of applause and well on his way to a brilliant career. Instead, he could hear only echoes of the shotgun blast that nearly took his life the night before. He imagined a pointless future of street fights and felonies in which the best he could hope for was a low-level position in the Chicago Mafia. Knowing there was no way out, he was close to despair. Then the phone rang; the rest is music history.

And in this book, for the first time, Seraphine tells the painful story, from the heart, of close friend and cofounder Terry Kath's death and of Seraphine's traumatic 1990 firing from the band and the pain that he has only recently overcome.

Complete with dozens of photos from Chicago's early years, Street Player is an uncommonly powerful rock memoir that is easy to pick up and very hard to put down.

From the Back Cover :

Chicago has thrilled music fans for more than forty years with their musical and lyrical brilliance. In this no-holds-barred

memoir, legendary rocker Danny Seraphine shares his

dramatic—and often shocking—experiences as the

supergroup's cofounder and longtime drummer. Whether

you're a diehard Chicago fan or just love a rousing rock-and-roll memoir, Street Player will engage, entertain, and surprise you.

"As the band filed in, they looked like they had seen a ghost.? Their jaws nearly hit the floor.?They probably weren't sure if I would take the time to fly out to Los Angeles and attend the meeting . . . I closed the door and sat back down at the table.?One by one, I looked Walt, Robert, and Lee dead in the eye.?Jimmy turned out to be a no-show. 'Did you ever, in your wildest dreams, imagine it would come to this?' I asked them."
—from Street Player
