Peter Cetera and The Derek “Jetera” – Parallels Between Chicago without Peter Cetera and The Yankees Without Jeter

I had an informal boycott of ever seeing Chicago in concert since Peter Cetera left the band in 1985.  After seeing Chicago in Nashville this past Saturday night, I must say I have a lot of making up of lost time where I could have enjoyed myself much more.  Chicago is still as awesome as they were when I was a kid playing my cassette and record versions of Chicago 16 and 17, and I plan on seeing them any chance I get.

While at the show, I thought about the parallels of Chicago without Peter Cetera and the Yankees at the end of the “Derek Jetera”.

  • Cetera left Chicago at 40 years old in 1985
  • Jeter retired at 40 years old in 2015
  • Both of their names have 4 E’s
  • Many fans felt “it was over” when Cetera left and when the “Jetera” ended
  • Many fans think (wrongly so) that Chicago isn’t Chicago and the Yankees aren’t the Yankees without their former leaders

I think the Yankees are going to be fine for many years to come, even without Jeter, and as I witnessed this weekend, Chicago is just as good without Cetera as well.

Don’t overestimate the importance of a single individual to a team’s success; the show must go on, and I’m happy to have discovered my love for Chicago once again, and hope most Yankee fans will do the same.
