Biography

Chicago, United States (1969 – 1983, 1987 – present)

Earth, Wind & Fire is an band, formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1969. Led by Maurice White, they are best known for their hits of the 19, among them “After the Love Has Gone”, “September,” “Reasons,” “Fantasy” and “Shining Star.”

Earth, Wind & Fire became the first black performers to headline throughout the world without an opening act, to receive Madison Square Garden’s Gold Ticket Award for selling more than 100,000 tickets and to receive the Columbia Records Crystal Globe Award for selling more than five million albums in foreign markets. They have gained the BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award and ASCAP’s Rhythm & Soul Heritage Award.

EW&F was disbanded in 1983, but in 1987 CBS Records convinced Philip Bailey and Maurice White to reunite the group.

The group managed to continue into the 90’s with releases such as “Heritage”,”Millennium”,and “In the Name of Love ” in 1997. However, due to Parkinson’s Disease, Maurice retired from the road but still continued to produce and sing on the group’s recordings.

In 2000, the original ’70s edition of Earth, Wind & Fire reunited for one night only in honor of their induction into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. The documentary entitled ‘Earth, Wind & Fire: Shining Stars’, which contains rarely seen historic video footage along with in-depth interviews with the band members was released in 2001

While not as prolific as in their ‘70’s heyday, Earth, Wind & Fire released “The Promise” in 2003 and the criticially acclaimed “Illumination”, which featured current contemporary r& b guests such as Will I Am, Rafael Saddiq, and Brian McKnight.

    I was wondering, does Earth, Wind and Fire have any actual connection to Egypt and their motology? Because from what I have seen they just use it as a image. Now if it is just a image thing they have obviously ruined for those like me how is actually into it and is therefore a buch of retarded fucking poseres who deserves nothing but eternal suffering under the wrath Apep! But it's cool man.

    Elementary School. Junior High. High School. College. Adult Life. So many good memories linked to the hits and the non-hits and the album cuts. No other BAND tops the Elements. Some come close, but my God, the repertoire. How can you choose the favorites?? Legends, absolute legends. I am always blown away each time I listen to these fellas.
