    Visionary is right, in this case. He was the driving force behind one of my favorite bands. A real innovator and a great musician. RIP.

    Dick, he just died. Ragu, just had a discussion about EWF and their greatness. A talented bunch of musicians whose talents were blended by White. The group is still touring. Not as big as it was during its heyday but the melody of their music is timeless.

    He was unable to tour with the band the last two decades because of Parkinson's.

    Would've made more money if Damone knew how to properly scalp.

    Damn, I saw them in concert in 1981; what a fun time. Best horn section in the 70s/80s, when there was some variety and depth.

    Too bad about Maurice; Philip Bailey got the publicity but Maurice was the driving force. May he RIP.

    Oingo Boingo's horn section is way up there as well.

    At least with Earth Wind and Fire, there's never a shortage of guys to serve as pallbearers.

    Many a high school party, once we got sufficiently loaded, involved a mass singalong and drunken, swaying circle to "Reasons."
