Bigger Than Elvis

Album: Chicago: The Box (2003)
  • Jason Scheff, the lead singer of Chicago, sang this as a tribute to his dad Jerry Scheff. Jerry was Elvis Presley's bass player and thought that he would be bigger than Elvis himself!
  • This song wasn't released because the album it was written for was shelved. However it can be found on the Chicago box set and there are numerous unofficial versions floating around the Internet.
  • Jason Scheff released his solo CD Chauncy in 1997. He joined the band after Peter Cetera left. >>
