Post Another bonafide LEGEND... R.I.P
This is another one that stings, although - like Lemmy - the writing was on the wall for a while. Love me some Earth, Wind & Fire!

Quote:
He sang in a church choir and was inspired to become a drummer by watching local marching bands.

“I saw the guys in the band playing drums — they had on shiny suits and were getting all the attention from the girls,” he told The Commercial Appeal of Memphis in 2007. “So I decided: That’s what I want to do. From that point on I just became infatuated with music.”



Goddamn right.

Yes, very sad news indeed. Looks like an EWF marathon is coming up this weekend.
