Biography

THE CAPTAINS OF INDUSTRY IS A CLASSIC ROCK & ROLL BAND, MADE UP OF SOME OF THE BEST MUSICIANS IN THE CHICAGOLAND AREA.

IF YOU LISTENED TO YOUR JAMS ON 8-TRACKS, CASSETTES OR MAYBE THAT NEW THING CALLED A CD, THEN WE’RE YOUR KIND OF BAND. WE WERE IN HIGH SCHOOL IN THE MID 70’S THRU THE MID 80’S,

BEFORE THE BABY BOOMERS GAVE WAY TO GENERATION WHATEVER-THE-HELL THEY’RE CALLED,

WE WERE ROCKING TO TUNES WHERE THE MELODIES WERE PRIZE POSSESSIONS.

LICKS AND SOLO’S WERE SOMETHING THAT YOU COULD SING NOTE FOR NOTE.

WE BOUGHT ALBUMS ENSHRINED WITH ARTISTIC COVERS AND HUNG OUT IN THE BASEMENT

LISTENING EVERYDAY AFTER SCHOOL. (WE MAY HAVE DONE A FEW OTHER THINGS AS WELL)

WE HUNG OUT AT RECORD SHOPS DAMMIT !!!

OUR MUSIC REQUIRED SKILL AND TALENT. GUITAR AMPS HAD TUBES. DRUMMERS PLAYED LIKE GODS AND SINGERS HAD TO SING WITHOUT THE HELP OF PITCH CORRECTION SOFTWARE. YOU COULD BE UGLY AND STILL BE COOL. MUSIC WAS REAL AND NOT A REALITY SHOW SELLING BULLSHIT AS MUSIC.

OUR GOAL IS TO PLAY TUNES THAT YOU DON’T HEAR AS OFTEN IN CLUBS OR FESTIVALS.

TUNES THAT REQUIRE SOME DETAIL, AS WELL AS OTHER ROCK AND POP GEMS THAT MAY HAVE BEEN PASSED OVER BY OTHER BANDS.

WE COVER TUNES FROM BANDS LIKE STEELY DAN, TOTO, LED ZEPPELIN, FOREIGNER, THE BEATLES,

JIMI HENDRIX, U2, THE POLICE, PETER GABRIEL, YES ETC........
