Earth Wind & Fire Looses founder Maurice White

Maurice White founder of Earth Wind & Fire looses his battle with Parkinson's Disease at the age of 74 years old on Wednesday February 3, 2016.  If you are a 70's baby I am quite sure you know who Earth Wind & Fire was and still is to this day, they are still touring the US but back in the day you had to hear your parents playing their vinyl albums of Maurice crooning out the songs like September, Let's Groove, Boogie Wonderland, After The Love Has Gone, Shining Star and many many more.  The Band was a 9 piece band with his brother Verdine White, Philip Bailey people may remember their names.  Maurice stopped touring with the band in 1995 when he became ill. Condolences to the family, he will truly be missed.  Some of the music icons have tweeted about his passing and remembrance of Maurice.
