One of my all-time favorite albums is Maurice White's 1985 offering which included the wonderful tracks "Stand By Me," "I Need You," and "Lady is Love," and I played them repeated on the cd and on my mp3. Of course, he first came to my attention as one of the founders of the awesome band Earth, Wind, & Fire. That group left a huge legacy and people will be listening to them, well, likely forever. "Serpentine Fire" is one of my favorite tunes. He wrote another fave, the Emotion's "Best of My Love." A lot of great musicians have left us this past few weeks, but his passing is especially painful for me. May he rest in peace.
