Ep. 12: "Hot Streets" ft. Hazel Cills

Special Episode: 'The Death of Terry Kath'

Welcome to Chicago breaks from its regular format to bring you a scripted special presentation—a harrowing true-crime saga that Horn Section members won’t soon forget. On January 23. 1978, Chicago’s lead guitarist and singer, Terry Kath, accidentally shot himself in the home of roadie Don Johnson. But…is there such a thing as an “accident”? How does this tragedy relate to the alleged relationship between Terry Kath and Jimi Hendrix, or the ongoing conflict between Kath and Peter Cetera? And why did a mysterious hater Twitter account appear just in time to derail WtC’s investigation?
