The music world has lost another great one.

Internationally known music genius, founder and former band leader of Earth, Wind and Fire Maurice White passed away Wednesday (Feb. 3) at the age of 74. His brother and fellow group member Verdine White told the Associated Press he passed away while asleep in his Los Angels home. 
 
The Memphis, TN native started his career as a session drummer and went on to forge the sound of one of the most critically acclaimed bands in history.  White was the front man on a torrent of classic hits throughout the 70s and 80s such as the  soulful romantic rhapsodies "Loves Holiday" and "Can't Hide Love."  He was also the lead on socially conscious track "That's the Way of the World." It was White voice that added to the dynamics of the infectiously rhythmic "September" and "Serpentine Fire."  Known for their energetic stage presentations and a tight horn section, Earth, Wind and Fire was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
This year at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards Earth, Wind and Fire will be saluted for lifetime achievement. 

 The Slice remembers the unmatched musical legacy of Maurice White and joins the people of the world in mourning this tremendous loss. Our prayers are with Verdine, Phillip and Ralph.
