The founding member of iconic American soul group Earth, Wind and Fire, Maurice White, has passed away in his Los Angeles home. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer had suffered from Parkinson’s Disease for a number of years. White was the band’s principal songwriter, and was remembered for his distinct vocal interplay with Phillip Bailey.

 

Earth, Wind & Fire were known for songs such as “September” and “After The Love Has Gone”, and sold millions of albums, with seven certified platinum by the RIAA. U.S president Barack Obama even invited the band to a White House event shortly after his election.
