The group had a steady stream of hits throughout t the 1970's and 1980's. To date, Chicago has sold over 40 million albums in the U.S., with 23 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum.
In 2017, original band members Peter Cetera, Robert Lamm, and James Pankow were elected to the Songwriters Hall of Fame for their songwriting efforts as members of the music group.
