" I' nrf- nir -p tq ir - y - "s ll"W'W!WW,S" 1 O YEAR INTO SOLO CAREER, CHICAGO AAEAABER HITS THE BY TOM ROLAND Staff Writer I Crystal Bernard. You know hen the spunky waitress with the sharp tongue on Wings who cant make it as a cello player. If she cant make it as a fictitious musician, why would she try to sing in real life? j Well, she did. And she turned in a pretty convincing rendition on (I WannaTake) Forever Tonight, a duet with Peter Cetera that's receiving significant airplay on adult pop radio. Bernard had previously recorded some smaller home demo tapes, but the duet represented her first time to seriously approach singing in a studio. Cetera, who produced the song for his current One Clear Voice album, had to coax the performance a bit "It was sort of like coaching," he assessed last week. "It's sort of like somebody singing in the shower They sing really good in the shower and you ask them to sing in front of you and it's a totally different thing. That's what it was like with her." ; Of course, Bernard also had the uncomfortable assignment of making her rookie record under the guidance of one of pop music's more identifiable and enduring voices. As a member of Chicago, Cetera started applying his voice to lead lines 25 years ago, when he shared efforts on 25 Or 6 To 4. Ten years ago, he left the band for a solo career that's kept him in the public ear. "Crystal would hand me these demos that were fantastic," Cetera continued. "But that's when there's nobody around. Even I get the chills, and I just sing in the studio with my engineer and nobody else, and it still is very unnerving at times. But to have somebody come in there the first time off and do it, I had to kind of walk her through it, but I thought it sounded pretty fantastic." Cetera is developing a reputation for his duets with women. In 1986, Amy Grant hooked her first No. 1 pop record by teaming with him on Next Time I Fall; Cher joined him in 1989 on After All for the movie Chances Are; and in 1992, Chaka Khan formed a Top 5 adultcontemporary pairing with Feels like Forever. In addition, Cetera charted a non-hit in 1988 with Agnetha Faltskog, formerly of Abba. On the current album, Cetera brought in Nashville's Ronna Reeves to do a remake of Abba's 20-year-old S.O.S. "With Chicago, there were a bunch of guys, we were together for 17 years, and I just never had the opportunity," Cetera said of his penchant for female vocal partners. "It's kind of like goin' to an all-boys school; then you go to college and you're surrounded by girls geez, it's so much nicer. "People like duets, and it's strange that out of the duets that I've done, I've taken songs that were meant for just one person to sing and changed them into duets. That's something I like to do. Next Time I t 't i ii-yy i j - y ji j".,ii ' igr-gr"' r f i-rii IN MUSIC 1974 No. 1 BillboardPop Hit Then Came You, Dionne Warwick & the Spinners. Trie song is the first No. 1 single for both Warwick and the Spinners. Dionne Warwick -N '&ftir,j.-fr ' Tigs' "'rTiF . r f. h A. - v- 4 J Peter Cetera Fall was one guy singing; Forever Tonight was the same way." Reeves is on tour with Cetera, doing three of her own songs plus the duet on S.O.S. Nashvillian Dana Glover, who played sax on the Eric Carmen-penned Forever Tonight, handles the vocal parts on that song during the tour, which comes to TPAC tonight Tickets bill Cetera with "surprise guests," though he declined to say whether Amy Grant would be among them. Either way, the concert is something of a landmark for Cetera: He's performing in one of the five cities where he recorded the current album, and it's his first tour since leaving Chicago. Cetera moved to Idaho after he went solo and concentrated most of his time on being a father to his daughter, Claire, now 11, who sings on one track on the new album. Even without hitting the road, he's been a familiar presence on the radio over the last 10 years with the immensely melodic hits Glory Of Love, One Good Woman, Even A Foot Mil mil-1 rmm ii n i n i ri mMaatammtmMmmmMm n i ir h mini nin-M, Early Bird Winter Sale JLa 20-40 Off J Selected FallWinter Maternity Apparel J Oct. 25th-28th Only I GREEN HILLS 385-3430 ' 1 Jj j Clendale Shopping Center, 3748 Hillaboro Road J acrai from Green Hill Mall I f Sim. 12-5; Moa 4 Thin. 10-8; f TW, Wed, Fri, S. 1(M 1 i The Elegant 4 O -30 Off Maternity Outlet 5 ;r" rr Can See and Restless Heart. "When I first when solo, I didn't feel that I had enough of a backlog of my own material to play, and I certainly wasn't going to go on the road and do all the old Chicago things," he said. "I think now is the time. I'm with a new record label, River North in Chicago and Nashville; I have a backlog of four albums now that I can pick from; and I can intersperse some of the older songs I did with Chicago." Among the songs he wrote andor sang for Chicago are Feelin' Stronger Every Day, Wishing You Were Here, If You Leave Me Now, Hard To Say I'm Sorry, Baby What A Big Surprise, Hard Habit To Break, Stay The Night and You're The Inspiration, And he re-recorded Happy Man, a cult favorite from the Chicago VII album, for his new solo project The tour, however, almost met with tragedy. On July 2, Cetera was involved in a motorcycle accident and had to have 60 stitches in his face, leaving him with what he laughingly calls "manly man scars." 1ST FORMER ROAD no Peter Cetera performs with special guests at 7:30 tonight at TPAC's Jackson Hall, 505 Deaderick St Tickets are $25 and $1 9, available through Tfcketmasten 737-4849 or 1 -800-333-4849. "I didn't break anything," he reported, "which is pretty amazing for hittin' pavement at 55 mph on a Harley. I took about 60 stitches in the face and had surgery, had cuts and bruises, lumps and scrapes, ripped everything off me, but I did not break anything." Well, not in the accident. But he did help break Crystal Bernard as a singer. 0T SHonrv (R) SHOWGIRLS (NC1 1) 6 50-9 3(1 NOW an6 Vhen (P&ist JADE (R) 2 004 45-7 25 9 35 UAu.
