"In the late 60's, I was formulating my concept and had been listening to the first Chicago album. I went with some friends to see them play and was blown away. Since that moment, which was one of the great concert memories I have, I became a lifelong fan of Danny's drumming. He's a pioneer, and there aren't many of those around. I finally got to meet him and I melted like a fan. What a terrific person and musician."
"In my opinion some of the greats are Chick Webb, Jo Jones, Blakey, Roach - some of the newer drummers I admire, people like Steve Gadd and Danny Seraphine with Chicago."
- Buddy Rich
"I put a band together in middle school with my brother Matt playing 90% Chicago songs. Danny is one of my biggest influences along side of Buddy and Ringo."
"Danny was one of my earliest drum heroes. I would listen to "Chicago II" all day when I was three years old. I still marvel at the passion, fire depth of his playing. He has influenced me deeply and has continued to inspire drummers for over four decades."
