Earth, Wind & Fire’s Maurice White Dies

Earth, Wind & Fire co-founder Maurice White died in his sleep yesterday after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. He was 74.

“Our brother Maurice White passed peacefully in his sleep this morning,” read a post on the band’s Twitter page. “The light is he, shining on you and me.”

Earth, Wind & Fire won six GRAMMY Awards and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. The group, best known for hits such as “Shining Star,” “September,” and “After the Love is Gone,” will also be honored with a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement award at this month’s ceremony.

“My brother, hero and best friend Maurice White passed away peacefully last night in his sleep,” Earth, Wind & Fire co-founder Verdine White said in a statement. “While the world has lost another great musician and legend, our family asks that our privacy is respected as we start what will be a very difficult and life-changing transition in our lives. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes.”
