Earth, Wind & Fire Co-Founder Maurice White Dead at 74
Quote:Maurice White, the co-founder of beloved group Earth, Wind & Fire, has passed away. He died in his sleep Thursday morning.

via TMZ:

Maurice died in L.A. after a long battle with Parkinson’s. He was diagnosed in 1992 and his condition deteriorated in recent months. The disease had progressed to the point he was forced to stop touring in with the band 1994.

The band had a string of hits, including “Shining Star,” “September,” “Boogie Wonderland,” and “After the Love has Gone.”

Maurice’s brother, Verdine, is also a band member.

Although Maurice wasn’t touring, he remained involved in the decisions involving the band.



Maurice was 74.

Woopsie, didn't realize there was a thread already. Looked in both music and world news to make sure but didn't think coffee house. My bad.
