5. My Wife & I Knew Jim Peterik

Separately, well before we met.
Later, I reconnected with Jim, because 2 guys I knew in high school were now in Survivor.
Jim's still playing festivals & big events around Chicago.
Back in the 80s, I went to his house.
He has a HOUSE!!!! I'm guessing 18,000 square feet, but with a full recording studio in the basement. Has to be close to 45,000 cubic feet!
He made TONS of money with his knock off of the beach boys tune for those old Sunkist Orange Soda commercials.
He did ok on this song too.
He's super savvy about business. His first contract with Scotti Brothers (Survivor) was unbelievable for a "first two albums" deal. Everybody in that band got very comfortable while the others were still in their 20s.
