Bill Champlin Interview

Everyone knows how much I love Chicago. Here is a five-part interview with Bill Champlin, the 'new guy' who has been with Chicago longer than three of the original members. For those who don't know, Champlin is old-school, a guy for whom the spirit of the 1960s never left him, especially in the way he talks. It's a nice breath of fresh air. The interview is from Paris and the video creator put the questions for you to read.

Here is talks about his new CD (parts 1 and 2), various takes on Chicago (throughout), his take [extremely entertaining] on "Stone of Sisyphus" (part 4), and his work with Michael English (part 5).
