Maurice White, Founder of Earth, Wind & Fire, Is Dead at 74

The sad news from the music industry continues. Maurice White, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in the late '80s, had stopped touring with the band in the mid '90s, but had remained active in the business. White was a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. His versatility led to his working with the likes of Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, Deniece Williams and The Emotions, with whom they recorded the fabulous "Boogie Wonderland." RIP.
