    [QUOTE="shaka64, post: 941809, member: 13428" RIP my Brother

    Maurice died in L.A. after a long battle with Parkinson's. He was diagnosed in 1992 and his condition deteriorated in recent months. The disease had progressed to the point he was forced to stop touring with the band 1994.

    This is my favourite Earth Wind & Fire track, I’m very very sorry I didn’t see them live [they were already at Wembley as opposed to my haunt the Hammersmith Odeon]. Maurice White/musical genius/GIANT RIP!



    Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?

    Is it true, were Lauryn Hill, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna who were meant to be performing at the Grammys cancelled because of the so obvious WHITENESS of this year's proceedings?

    Maurice White as the creative engine of Earth Wind and Fire was an obvious giant who created a Super group that enjoyed huge success in the USA and worldwide, thus isn’t it an obvious slap in the face to African American artistes that his and the comparably sensational live, Natalie Cole’s passing in 2016 wasn’t worthy of a mention because the Grammy’s are about bucks aren’t they; give these brilliant performers time/a mention/a new generation listens to their far superior to TODAY output on You tube and they’ll both be in/at the top of the download charts [great for their beneficiaries but absolutely no benefit at all to the current status quo], wouldn’t they?
