Remembering Maurice White

There are plenty of reasons to be remember and celebrate musician Maurice White. As founder and (joint) lead singer of Earth, Wind & Fire, one of the greatest studio and live bands in popular music; as a great jazz drummer who played with the likes of Ramsey Lewis in the 1960s; as a champion and virtuoso player of that strange and beautiful African instrument, the kalimba (after which the band named their record label); and of course, for the sparkly outfits and great pop/disco hits of the 1970s. 494 more words
