Wondering if anyone happened to check out the Terry Kath Documentary that was aired on cable channel AXS.tv last night?

Was produced by his daughter. Definitely one of my top 5 favorite guitarists of all time. Pretty interesting stuff, a lot of it already known. But also a good amount of never before seen video/pics/info.

Next Jan. will be 40 years since that tragic day he left, but just like Duane, his guitar/voice & music lives on all these years later, the mark of a true great. Ironically enough it was followed by Gregg and his last band live in studio from Abbey Road, which was also kickin' too.

Thanks for pointing this out. I had heard about this when there was considerable doubt that it would ever be completed. I will record it when it runs again.

And like Duane's, Terry's vision had wings to fly even after he was gone. Never the same but some pretty good stuff. I didn't follow them much after the tragedy but for obvious reasons admire the success they were able to achieve without him.

didn't see it - I have to look and see if I get that channel and hope it will be on again.

One of the greats - the 1st few Chicago albums are among my favorites.

I got a chance to watch this last night.

Phenomenal --- just so tastefully well done words are not sufficient.

This sets a new standard for music documentaries for me, to the extent that that term serves it little justice. It should be categorized as something much different and higher. Terry's daughter effectively goes on a quest to learn about a father she only knew via others and what she could find on the web.

Think as if Galadrielle could've translated her book onto the screen against the soundtrack of tasty Duane recordings --- that's the type of power and passion and meaning that comes across in this work. The parallels are really eery.

I am in awe

For anyone interested, go to Youtube and type in "Terry Kath isolated guitar tracks".

There are many isolated rhythm guitar tracks to a bunch of their songs...Not talking about 25 or 6 to 4 or his great solos, that goes without saying. But rather his rhythm guitar tracks.

The guy was an absolute masterful, incredibly tasty rhythm guitarist who added so much to the tracks under the radar. A monster all-around musician. Sad shame he went out the way he did but really great to see that 40 years down the road, he is being recognized for his contributions which were many.

Agree, his daughter did an excellent job presenting this.

I watched it the first night it was broadcast. Sad tale but very interesting one. Even if Kath did not commit suicide (a friend said there was NO way in the doc), carelessness due to his drug use likely caused the accident with a gun that killed him.

Too many musicians get mesmerized with their own talent and caught up in their own bubble where it never occurs to them that to maintain their health they need to do something like riding a bicycle or lifting weights. Look at the pictures of Kath towards the end of the documentary...........he looked quite bad...........face very bloated and way overweight. And of course he was doing a ton of drugs.

WHAT a talent though........31 is just WAY too young.........the quote by Hendrix that Kath was better than him always blows me away.............

Watched this last night....outstanding documentary. Very impressed that his daughter even got Peter Cetera involved. He was a no show for their rock and roll hall of fame induction and he did not partake in the excellent documentary CNN produced earlier in the year. I think his involvement in this documentary, tells you all you need to know about what Terry Kath meant to those who knew him well.

It's funny, I am 40 years old, and growing up Chicago was my "dad's music". I never gave them the time of day until I saw them on MTV in the late 80's and by then they were way too mellow for my hard rock/heavy metal tastes. As I evolved as a music fan over the years I have been shown the light.

While I am still not rocking anything they did in the 80's, their output when Terry was leading the band is mandatory listening. He was such a badass as a guitarist, vocalist and band leader....his loss is one of the most tragic in music history and I don't think he gets the attention that he deserves. This documentary should help a little. Watch it if you can.
