Chicago-- Newest Inductee to Rock n Roll's Hall of Fame!

49 years! I can't believe my all-time favorite rock band, Chicago, has been around nearly five decades!

I’ve been a fan since the early 1970s when they had so many of my favorite Top Ten hits: "Make Me Smile," "25, or 6 to 4", "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" and "Beginnings," "Saturday In The Park", "Feelin' Stronger Every Day," and “Just You 'N Me," "(I've Been) Searchin' So Long," "Call On Me," and "Wishing You Were Here".

Weird Al 2016 Concert

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then that makes parody…what? Hero worship? At the very least, it’s an acknowledgment of the power of another artist’s work and the mutability of that art. As a pop culture enthusiast and someone who can constantly make myself laugh with my own parodies, I’ve long loved the form, and I can trace that love to two sources: Spaceballs and “Weird Al” Yankovic. The former, I can see whenever I want to thanks to the magic of home video; the latter, the opportunity is far more elusive, so we’re extremely lucky that Al’s The Return of the Mandatory World Tour is coming to the Foellinger Outdoor Theatre here in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Sunday, June 26 at 7:30 p.m.
