James Pankow Net Worth $5 Million

James Pankow net worth: He attended Quincy College on a full music scholarship, but finally transferred to DePaul University to ensure he could be nearer to the group he began the summer after his freshman year. While studying at DePaul, he became friends with Walter Parazaider, who encouraged him to join his group, The Big Matter, afterwards renamed Chicago Transit Authority. The group released its first record in 1969, and was later forced to shorten its name, as the actual Chicago Transit Authority threatened to sue. They became known as Chicago and went on to be extremely successful. James Pankow has performed together with the group ever since that time, and has written multiple tracks for the group, and composed and ordered all brass sections.
