Maurice White Biography
Birthday: December 19, 1941 (Sagittarius)
Born In: Memphis, Tennessee, United States
Maurice White was a celebrated American musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer. He rose to international fame by being the bandleader of the band called ‘Earth, Wind & Fire’. The ‘water’ element did not feature in the name of the band as his astrological chart was devoid of any water signs. The band experimented with a variety of music styles like funk, jazz, soul, pop and some R&B. The influence of African sounds was evident and it helped to create some unique renditions, which were pretty appealing to the masses. Although Maurice had a hard time with his band initially, he did not give up and gradually he managed to revamp it with new members that included Philip Bailey (singer), Larry Dunn (keyboardist) and Al McKay (guitarist). His younger brother, Verdine, served as a bassist in the band. Being a highly talented musician, Maurice tried his best to make ‘Earth, Wind & Fire’ a great success by actively organizing concerts that enthralled the audience with exotic features like live disappearing acts and pyramids along with scintillating music.
