RIP Maurice White

Post by Robin_Shadowes » Fri Feb 05, 2016 5:58 pm

The founder of soul group Earth, Wind & Fire, Maurice White, has died in the US, his brother has said.
White, 74, died in his sleep in Los Angeles on Thursday morning. He suffered from Parkinson's Disease.
His band had a series of hits including September, Boogie Wonderland, Shining Star and After the Love has Gone.
The singer-songwriter was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1992 but his condition was reported to have got worse in recent months.
Earth, Wind & Fire were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000, and Maurice was individually inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2010.

I'll also take the opportunity to mention Paul Kantner and Signe Anderson, both of Jefferson Airplane who incredibly enough left us both on the same day. We're only into the second month slightly and we have already lost so many.
