Loved your Acceptance Speech

Robert, I noticed your comment, vis a vis that you almost lamented that your recognition was directed towards your C years rather than the last 25 to 35 which you value so much.  I just think that is typical of how everyone on your forum feels towards their own careers and lives.  We each have gone through periods of personal success and times of personal plateau.  An interesting thing here is that our efforts and ambitions remained constant and consistent during both phases.  Why?   Simply, it…

Songwriters HOF missing the boat

I am new to "all things RL". Only became aware of the individual band members of Chicago since watching the documentary even though I have loved their music for 40 years. There is certainly plenty of wonderful things to say about the music of Chicago, but, in my opinion, there is so much more to offer in the solo work of Robert Lamm. The lyrics are mature and thought provoking (nice to have words with more than one syllable).  The intricate instrumental parts allows the listener to appreciate…

Hall of Fame

Robert, when you have the time (I'm sure that everyone here will agree) we would love to see any video you might have of you getting your award, even if it is only cell phone shot.  Sharing the experience of your success, even vicariously, means a lot to many of us!  David Cross

4 Bells

I just realized that the song "4 Bells," which Robert explains so nicely on the Liner Notes page, is set at 4:00 - 25 or 26 minutes and many, many years after another song he wrote! Cool! It also reminds me of the Monkees' "Porpoise Song" with all the goodbyes.

Congrats!!

Robert Lamm, I tried to post a few minutes ago and don't see my post, so if this is on here twice, my apologies. Congrats to you Robert and James Pankow for being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.  You both deserve this and have definitely earned it.  I planned to congratulate you both when I was at your Phoenix concert this last weekend, but I became nervous, shy and unable to speak (very unusual for me).  Sorry!  Anyway, thank you for your beautiful music as I have been listening to…

Songwriters Hall of Fame

Robert....I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your impending induction into this prestigious community.  It is well deserved and long overdue; as was the band's induction in the RRHOF.  I was there to see the ceremony and it was a night I will remember always.  Such a prolific writer.  You have written timeless and classic songs that people still want to hear years after they've been penned. I guess that's what makes them timeless and classic, yes?   What a wonderful honor.…

A question....

Being new to this forum and uncertain of its protocols, I would like to ask a question, and hopefully not get too badly beaten up because my ignorance. :)  Is it possible, through this website, to send you an old-school fan letter?  I'm not sure if it's fit for public consumption, and I would rather not serialize it on this board.  It's rather lengthy, and also kind of personal (to me) in places.  I patiently await your response.
