Earth wind and fire were more than just versatile, They brought a cosmic mystical and eclectic vibe to music during their time. It all blended together perfectly with the writings of Maurice white and his unpredictable arrangements. The group was named after The three elements in Whites astrological charts.
I found it extremely interesting that Maurice white learn to play the African Instrument called the Kalimba in the late 70’s and he incorporated the instrument in all of the bands albums.
Here’s a fact I bet you didn’t know, the song Reasons is actually about a one night stand! You know The part where he sings longing to love you just for a night….Yeah.
Earth, Wind & Fire is the first African-American act to sell out Madison Square Garden and to receive the MSG Gold Ticket Award. President Barack Obama invited Earth, Wind & Fire to perform at the White House.
