I seen them twice when I was in high school. His voice sounds different now. . . . but hey, according to wiki, he was only 19 years old when I saw him in 1970.

I was riding my new 1970 Triumph Bonneville over to my girlfriend’s house. This song was playing on the radio when I walked into her house. Jim still has it, as well as the horns, WOW! GOOD TIMES!

One of Chicagoland's finest. Without them, there wouldn't be any Survivor. BTW, Can you even BEGIN to imagine Katy Perry or Lady Gaga doing shows 40 years from now?

So bad ass. A band that knows they have a powerhouse tune, and they deliver the way it deserves. I don't really care for trumpet playing bands, but come on, good is good.

In the 1970's every single school band played this. And many still do, to this day. Over and over and over again.

Truly a kick ass song! Classic. Timeless. It was one of my favorites back in the day, and the band can still lay it out there upon request, nearly 50 years later. Spectacular rendition and video. Thanks for the post!

I cannot belive that the original video has less hits and likes than a terrible remake like „A king is born“. These guys are full-blown musicians all their life. Thank you so much for this masterpice!

BRING BACK MUSIC LIKE THIS.. The world of music needs talent like this. I've had enough of hip hop and all the slop.

This sounds like Eye of the Tiger
Doesn't sound like it, but Jim Peterik wrote both songs, (Eye of the Tiger while with Survivor).
