Maurice White, founder of the phenomenal Earth, Wind & Fire, died peacefully in his sleep last night after a long struggle with Parkinson’s Disease.
He was 74.
They were a unique talent, and hard to define when they arrived on the scene in the late 1960’s.
Part funk, rock, jazz, disco, and always rhythm and blues, this 9 piece band of “Shining Stars” graced us with so many hits.
Here he sings lead in one of my favorites, September.
Rest in peace.
