“It’s sort of like asking somebody if they want to get back together with their ex-wife,” Cetera tells Channel NewsAsia. “Never say never, but I’m very happy now.”
Cetera subsequently had a Top 25 album with 1986′s Solitude/Solitaire, and a pair of charttopping hits with “Glory of Love” and “The Next Time I Fall” with Amy Grant, but hasn’t found as consistent success since. Chicago, meanwhile, continued with the platinum-selling 18 and 19, before its own commercial fortunes similarly cooled.
“Sometimes you have to do what’s not best financially; you have to do what’s best in your heart,” Cetera adds. “And that’s what that time was.”
If anything, Cetera says he wishes he’d made the decision before he did.
“I think I probably should have done it sooner,” Cetera says. “Being with a band is a marriage, it’s like a marriage. Pretty soon, things are different. You want this, and they want this. It ends up in divorce.”
