    Default Flea

    Flea: Maurice White and the great earth wind and fire were a massive influence on me and represented my highest aspirations for the red hot chili peppers. First Bowie, now Maurice. The only other pop culture musicians that affected me as deeply as a kid were George Clinton pfunk, led Zeppelin, and Stevie wonder. In my junior high school the white kids loved Zeppelin, the black kids loved p funk, the freaky kids loved Bowie, but EVERYONE loved Earth Wind and Fire. They were just undeniable. Old people loved em, kids loved em, every race and economic class loved em. They just crossed every line with the power of incredible music and amazing performances. You could dance to em you could rock out to em and you romance to em. My dream for the red hots was that we would be able to make music that would be for everybody, and we have always reached for that. Earth wind and fire set that standard for me. Maurice was a humble and powerful man who gave me something to aspire to and I am so grateful for him. He showed me the shining star he was a beautiful gift to us. Thank you Maurice I love you, you have broken through to the other side you have been let in on the big mystery. R.I.P.

    Default 2016 Maurice White autobiography


    The late Grammy-winning founder of the legendary pop/R&B/soul/funk/disco group tells his story and charts the rise of his legendary band in this sincere memoir that captures the heart and soul of an artist whose groundbreaking sound continues to influence music today. With an introduction by Steve Harvey and a foreword by David Foster.

    "To the readers of this book you need to know that EW&F is simply the greatest living group in my lifetime. No one put together lyrics to a melody like they did; no one put harmony to sound and rhythm like they did; no one added horns in the way that they did and no one, but no one messed with our minds about love and life like they did. . . . EARTH because they grow on you; WIND because it moves you in one loving direction and FIRE because they consume your heart in a single flame of love."—Steve Harvey

    With its dynamic horns, contrasting vocals, and vivid stage shows, Earth, Wind & Fire was one of the most popular acts of the late twentieth century—the band "that changed the sound of black pop" (Rolling Stone)—and its music continues to inspire modern artists including Usher, Jay-Z, Cee-Lo Green, and Outkast. At last, the band’s founder, Maurice White, shares the story of his success.

    White reflects on the great blessings music has brought to his life and the struggles he’s endured: his mother leaving him behind in Memphis when he was four; learning to play the drums with Booker T. Jones; moving to Chicago at eighteen and later Los Angeles after leaving the Ramsey Lewis Trio; forming EWF, only to have the original group fall apart; working with Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond; his diagnosis of Parkinson’s; and his final public performance with the group at the 2006 Grammy Awards. Through it all, White credits his faith for his amazing success and guidance in overcoming his many challenges.

    My Life with Earth Wind, and Fire is an intimate, moving, and beautiful memoir from a man whose creativity and determination carried him to great success, and whose faith enabled him to savor every moment.

    I have just become super into EWS and listening to a lot of their songs - a lot I didn't know, but there were quite a few I just never realised they sang.

    'September' is one of my fave songs and my and my fiance have just picked it to play at our wedding (after the ceremony for when we walk back down the aisle).
